We loved our stay at the Bella Manga in one of the self catering lodges. It is a bit outside Plettenberg but the location is great for a relaxing time. It is easy to get there if you have a car and easy to get to other attractions nearby. Kids loved to use the pool when we got back in...

Bella manga is a very nice accommodation. It is an old farmers place, with a nice big garden, fine swimmingpool and very well equipped rondavels. The beds are very comfortable and the shower is very good. Ray and Fiona are the owners and they really do a great job. They are very friendly, have a lot of humour and make...

Located 15 Km from town in a green scenery, with nice swimming pool and jacuzy surrounded by a large lawn, this is a perfect place to rest in a quiet and beautiful guest farm. The beach is not far away, the sun is generous, nature gorgeous.

My wife and I stayed for a night last year and wished we could stay much longer. We won't make the same mistake next time. Ray and Fiona are salt of the earth good people. The roundovel and decor was great. They sent us to a great restaurant. You'll miss out if you stay elsewhere.

Only getting round to leaving this review as wasn't previously a member. Stopped here last February for 3 nights in the Rondavel. What a beautiful place Ray and Fiona have. The grounds in which their property is based are immaculate and are beautiful jut to wonder around. Both Ray and Fiona were very helpful and knowledgeable of the local area....

We've just spent some time at Bella Manga. This is the fourth or fifth time that Ray & Fiona Berresford have again exceeded themselves in providing customer satisfaction above and way beyond the industry norm: accommodation is luxurious, even the simplest of meals becomes a feast with Fiona creating and supervising and Ray dispenses his wines like a master !...

What can we say about this amazing place?! The owners Fiona and Ray were adorable and they made us feel at home,although much better, and even their lovely dogs Tigre and Warriors were two cute little cuddly puppies. Our room was one of the self catering ones, decorated beautifully and massive, probably bigger than my apartment back in Italy! We...

We stayed at Bella Manga in August, 2013 - 2 families in the forest cottages. It is the perfect setting, and just the right distance from town. If you want to go into Plett, the drive is 10 minutes, but then you get back to Bella Manga and feel like you are in another world. The cabins are rustic but...

We had a very great stay here. We were friendly welcomed by the owners and their lovely dogs. They made sure we would have the best time in Plett and showed us some nice restaurants we could eat at.

Family thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Surrounded by forests, cows and horses the cosy wooden cabins was the perfect get away from the hustle of routine. The added advantage is that Plettenbergbay is close by as well as world of birds and monkey land.
