The Plettenberg, The Cellars-Hohenort and The Marine present wonderful honeymoon options for both overseas and local couples.

Whichever hotel you choose, you can expect unique locations, combined with elegantly designed interiors, world-class cuisine, unparalleled service and warm, welcoming staff who will cater to your every need. From romantic turndowns and indulgent couple’s spa treatments, to alfresco picnics and intimate private or in-room dining, we will do our utmost to make your honeymoon a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
