Guest amenities for hospitality and home

Here are some of the changes TBAC are making on guest amenities:

·      Plastic – reduce, reuse, recycle, replace….
All travel-size (20-50ml) guest amenity bottles will be made from 100 % recycled PET called rPET. This will cut the use of ‘virgin’ PET to zero. Not only will no new plastic enter the system, but the demand for rPET is pushing the recycling industry to reclaim more material before it’s lost. By switching to rPET we further solidify the ‘circular economy’.
Circular Economy is Key:
“A circular economy is an economic system aimed at eliminating waste and the continual use of resources. Circular systems employ reuse, sharing, repair, refurbishment, remanufacturing and recycling to create a close-loop system, minimising the use of resource inputs and the creation of waste, pollution and carbon emissions.”

·      Pleat Wrapped Soaps
Pleat wrapped soaps will be packaged with wrap that is recyclable, biodegradable paper (tissue-like paper). This small change alone removes well over 1,000,000 pieces of plastic from landfill each year.
The plastic sticky label will also be paper-based material with compatible adhesive, ensuring that the label can be recycled.

·      Boxed Items
TBAC are converting the majority of their board and paper packaging to FSC certified material. Items like boxed accessories (shower caps etc).
TBAC are now a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) trademark license holder.
The FSC certification is considered the "gold standard" designation for wood harvested from forests that are responsibly managed, socially beneficial, environmentally conscious, and economically viable.
Other key features of boxed accessory items:
-  vanity kit cotton bud steams are made from paper 
-  shower cap made from EN 13432 (2000) certified bioplastic
·      More plastic…… replace, replace, replace!
Cellophane- and flow-wrapped accessories will be a thing of the past.
Plastic laundry bags must also be a thing of the past. They are now being replaced with non-woven material and used linen laundry bags. This also contributes to job creation and a socio-economic development project.
·      Further significant changes:
Bamboo toothbrushes (biodegradable) made from fast-growing sustainable Moso Bamboo, will replace the plastic ones currently in the dental kit.
Slippers will be made from natural, biodegradable and renewable cork and linen and will be packaged in kraft paper.

Along with the FSC Certification, TBAC have the following accreditations:

Beauty Without Cruelty

TBAC is now a brand which have proven their humane status.  Compliant according to a strict set of criteria, to BWC, a recognised authority able to audit and endorse the humane claims of personal care, cosmetics and household cleaners, not tested on animals.

ISO Certification

Certifies that a management system, manufacturing process, service, or documentation procedure has all the requirements for standardization and quality assurance. TBAC is now ISO:9001 and ISO:22716 accredited.

 Tsitsikamma village inn

about tsitsikamma village inn

The Hotel’s Hunters Pub was a hunting lodge that was built in 1841 to accommodate hunters that walked into the area to hunt game in the surrounding forests. In 1860, Thomas Bain constructed the road from Plettenberg Bay to Kareedouw through the Tsitsikamma. This 184 km road took 4 years to complete with the help of 200 convicts. Just past the Tsitsikamma Village Inn is the original pass – at the time the pass was so narrow, it was only open to traffic in one direction each day. Travellers waiting for their turn used to outspan in the Hotel’s ground.

In 1888 the Hotel’s reception building was built as a manager’s residence for the first sawmill in the area. Overnight accommodation was later added, and in 1943 the Tsitsikamma Village Inn was registered as a Hotel. In 1994 it was decided to replace the old buildings, and a well-known architect, Martin Rattray was called in to design unique accommodation. He suggested designing the rooms as period colonial houses about a Village Square. His proposal was accepted, and all the old rooms were replaced, and new ones added incorporating the original stables. Twenty-two bedrooms were built around the Village Square and the hotel was renamed as The Old Village Inn. The name was later changed to Tsitsikamma Village Inn.

On the 1st of November 2010, the Tsitsikamma Village Inn has changed hands and is now the pride and joy of the new enthusiastic owners, Chris Sykes, Irma de Villiers, David and Wilma Pienaar. Chris and Irma who have been in the hospitality industry along the Garden Route for many years, with David and Wilma Pienaar from Oudtshoorn, are now the latest chapter in the history of this magical property.
The hotel has seen the exciting developments of a popular 60's themed diner and even a microbrewery with original crafts, and will continue to grow in years to come.

With this small town, comes small surprises… 


Whether you are staying at the magical Tsitsikamma Village Inn for a night or three, or if you happen to be making a stop along your way down to the Garden Route, Shake, Rattle and Roll at the retro Marilyn's 60's Diner!

Proudly sporting the all American Burger and cold milkshakes, the diner invites you to a throwback of a dining experience altogether.

Enjoy the juke box classics and take snaps of the stunning classic cars and bike collection, celebrating the sensational 60's era of none other than Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley.  Our diner is a wonderful venue for all occasions, be it a birthday party or a team building conference, we offer great food and a jukebox to keep the atmosphere going. We have a number of props our guests are welcome to have fund with, and we put 101% into making the theme of the diner come alive for all functions and events.
The latest addition to the Tsitsikamma Village Inn is our micro-brewry, brewing up uniquely local brews available on tap.  Our one of a kind brewery tap room can be found between our Hotel and Marilyn's 60's Diner.  We are constantly trying new recipes and methods to create unique Tsitsikamma craft beer flavours.

From grain to grass, only the purest intentions go into making our beer.  The beer is brewed according to the 1487 German Reinheitsgebot (Purity Law): using only barley, hops and water.   The ingredients are carefully selected and the water is from our very own well - giving you that original Tsitsikamma brewery taste.

This is a lovely place to stay to get away from it all, but still having plenty to do like walks in the forest.
