Home Away From Home: Kurland Hotel

Looking for a getaway that will have you living the high life? Then hop a flight to South Africa and head to Plettenberg Bay, where the Kurland Hotel will have you playing polo, sipping brandy, and enjoying spa treatments in a gorgeous setting.

Kurland, which was renovated into a luxury hotel 10 years ago, has received many accolades, including a 2002 runner-up award for the prestigious Tatler Hotel of the Year. The hotel's look is homey and unique, thanks to furnishings sourced from family heirlooms and objets d’art discovered at international fairs such as Maison & Objet in Paris and Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan.

There really does seem to be something for everyone, from dolphin watching and beach combing in Plettenberg Bay to polo ponies and spa treatments on the hotel's grounds. In fact, the hotel's Plettenberg Bay Festive Season of Polo and Easter Polo Festival are helping to establish it as a force to be reckoned with in the world of polo.

Not so much into equine sports? Then take time to smell the roses in the hotel's historic rose gardens, or relax in the spa's private steam room, sauna room, therapy rooms, relaxation area, or plunge pool. Brides-to-be can also dream about holding their ceremony or reception on the hotel's beautiful grounds. Wedding ceremonies may be held in the hotel gardens, and catering is offered by the hotel's award-winning restaurant.

While flying halfway around the world to stay at a luxury hotel may not be in your budget at the moment, it is fun to take a peek at this gorgeous facility. See what's to love in the gallery below.
