For all it's casualness The Old Rectory is five-star all the way. The spa is a Sanctuary Spa with decadent Moyo treatments, QMS facials and a starlit hammam. The food is expertly prepared by Kristine Moodie.
In-room amenities include Nespresso machines, underfloor heating and heavenly beds. All rooms have either sea or garden views and a selection of the 18 can be turned into family rooms, via interleading balconies.
But all this would be nothing without the staff. Like a luxury lodge where time is inconsequential and whims continually taken care of, The Old Rectory is run by professional personnel organising day trips around Plett, ensuring beach towels are at the ready, or simply taking pride in their lovely new home.
They're always ready to serve. No wonder the summer season is already almost fully booked.
