Only a few minutes away from the pristine beaches of Plettenberg Bay, Fynbos Ridge is set amongst fragrant fynbos, with stunning mountain views. Accommodation in the Cape Dutch style Country House is spacious and well appointed, and the self-catering garden cottages are comfortable and secluded. Our swimming pool is private and has the most amazing views.
Our ethos is relaxed luxury, and we provide you with peace and tranquility together with friendly and professional service.
We offer fine dining, as well as delicious breakfasts. Our organic herb and vegetable gardens supply our kitchen, and self-catering guests are welcome to pick their own salads.
The Garden Route is well known for bird life, forest walks and whale watching. We have over 85 species of birds visiting our property, and proteas flower in our indigenous gardens. We are committed to the environment, and have been carbon neutral approved.
We would love to welcome you to Fynbos Ridge!

Owners Liz and Brian Phillips are committed to doing their bit for the environment. Over a period of years the Fynbos has been restored to its natural state by undertaking a burning schedule and continuous removal of all invasive alien vegetation. Fynbos is a collective term which describes the vegetation indigenous to the Southern Cape and includes well-known plant species such as proteas and ericas. In 2001 Fynbos Ridge was proclaimed a Private Nature Reserve by the Western Cape Nature Conservation Board. Many birds, butterflies and small mammals have now made Fynbos Ridge their home.
Steps we have taken to protect the environment and conserve natural resources include:
"Fynbos Ridge is proud to have been awarded Carbon Neutral Approved status. Annually trees are planted to off-set our carbon footprint, and guests are encouraged to take part in this initiative."
The following weather statistics have been taken over the past 3 year period substantiating our claims of a temperate climate.
