Lily Pond Lodge celebrates 20 years 
Published by Plett Tourism: November 16th, 2022
The 1st of December 2002, Niels and Margret landed at Lily Pond to start their new adventure in South Africa. Both originally from the Netherlands, they visited South Africa on holiday and fell in love with the country, returning in 2002 to purchase Lily Pond.

They have worked side by side to constantly make improvements to the lodge and have developed it into a lovely, tranquil 4-Star Country Lodge and never regret it. Plett Tourism would like to wish them all the best for their committed 20 years in business in Plettenberg Bay!


Nestled on the edge of the serene, indigenous Tsitsikamma forests on the east side of the famous Garden Route, Lily Pond offers a tranquil retreat for even the most intrepid city slicker. It is the perfect synergy of modern “Afro-Zen” architectural influences, set on the banks of the most beautiful lily ponds.

While away the day on beautiful wooden decks, watching the myriad bird species come and go. Try the excellent kitchen with a daily changing small, ever-evolving menu with vegetarian options, focusing on fresh, local, seasonal ingredients, of which a great deal is grown on the property, simply cooked, and beautifully presented.
