Welcome to Kwendalo, Plettenberg Bay, South Africa

Nature. Nurture. Nourish.

Our Growing Story

Kwendalo is a holistic wellness centre, country estate & centre for learning in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. We are cultivating balanced living through our six key dimensions of wellness: physical, emotional, spiritual, mental, social and environmental. The estate offers a variety of wellness treatments, retreats, and classes addressing a balanced and holistic approach to wellness, including homoeopathic consultations, yoga, nourishment, ozone therapy, reflexology, and our signature retreat programme.

On the 16- hectare estate, accommodation is available in our recently renovated Manor House which is ready to enfold guests in comfort and tranquility with convenient access to Kwendalo's Gardens and Wellness Centre. Our extensive gardens, designed by Paul Martin, are being developed using regenerative agricultural methods and our Green Cafe - currently for Wednesday evening pop-ups, Tuesday & Thursday breakfasts and lunches - uses fresh, local ingredients and whole foods to produce delicious juices, smoothies and plant-based meals.

You are invited to rejuvenate and be inspired, grow as we grow, and take it all home with you. Please note that the estate is currently open for accommodation bookings, classes and treatments, and the Green Cafe by appointment only.

Our Six Key Dimensions of Wellness

At Kwendalo, we inspired by our tagline, Nature. Nurture. Nourish. which has evolved into a philosophy of how the following six key dimensions of wellness - physical, emotional, environmental, mental, social and spiritual - dovetail, much like the pieces of a puzzle, to contribute towards a personal harmony and sense of well-being.

We passionately believe that, in a modern society, we have stopped growing and started simply surviving. In doing so, our individual dimensions of wellness have become unbalanced and, therefore, need a unique, personalised approach to restoring that balance – that harmony – of wellbeing.

Walking in tired, and literally limping, and leaving rejuvenated with a bounce in my step. A week of passionate therapists and amazing treatments under the guidance of Dr Rautenbach . And the food was a treat from arrival to departure. Definitely HIGHLY recommended.
