Awarded by the South African Tourism Grading Council, this prestigious acknowledgement is a credit to the region and reflects the lodge’s commitment to excellence in hospitality, service and quality.

This unspoilt oasis is a haven for plant, bird and animal life and many evenings the local wildlife – bush pig, bush buck and the occasional porcupine – can be spotted just metres from the lodge. There is an established walking trail down to the beautiful Whiskey Creek which offers exciting bird sightings including the Knysna turaco and other indigenous species.

Each of the lodge’s eight rooms are tastefully decorated, with king size beds and special natural views and private patios. The natural surroundings have been the source of inspiration for the decor, using earthy tones to create a tranquil and calming atmosphere. Enjoy breakfast, lunch and cocktails with a view of the majestic Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma Mountains on an expansive wooden deck.

The lodge recognised the five-star grading with the following sentiment: “We thank our loyal guests and staff for their support and feedback, and we look forward to welcoming future guests to our lodge, where they can enjoy our warm hospitality of excellence and the scenic beauty and tranquility of the Crags.”

Plett Tourism CEO, Patty Butterworth congratulated Crags Country Lodge by saying: “We’d like to welcome this new addition to Plett’s high-end accommodation offerings: a serene lodge in a beautiful setting and congratulate the team on being awarded their five-star rating. The Crags Country Lodge will be a credit to Plett’s already exceptional accommodation offerings. We hope that you will visit them for a stay or a meal.”
