Pezula Resort Hotel & Spa
Three hundred miles from Cape Town, this exclusive getaway (tennis superstar Roger Federer bought a private residence here) is set on a bluff above the ocean. Part of an expansive development that also includes an 18-hole golf course, horse stables, and villas, the 78 suites are clean-lined and airy, with contemporary South African art. The restaurant, Zachary’s, is one of the finest in the Cape area (try the guava-barbecued quail or free-range Namibian beef). The polo fields of Plettenberg Bay are only a helicopter transfer away.
