    Grootbos Forest Lodge ★★★★

    Mother Nature is at the centre of your experience at Forest Lodge, whether it’s glimpsed in the botanical inspired tones of the decor, the curved lines of the roof or the way the expansive windows frame each natural masterpiece. Bask in the dappled light and unwind in this contemporary and stylish architectural haven.

    Wind your way through our ancient Milkwood forest as you walk between your opulent suite and the lodge itself, and you’ll feel serenity settle over you like a delicate mist. With its clean lines, elegant ceilings and expansive windows, Forest Lodge is the place you retreat to for blissful contemplation or for connecting with yourself or nature.


    A stay at Forest Lodge is the ultimate way to restore, destress and reconnect. Fling open the doors and let nature flood in, relax on your private wooden deck, or listen to the distant sounds of the ocean, as you feel the rest of the world melt away.

    Every free standing suite is exquisitely furnished in soft natural palettes with furnishings that ooze indulgence.

    Stroll under a natural green canopy until you discover your Luxury Suite set apart on top of a hill, with endless ocean and fynbos vistas laid out before you. Relax on your sumptuous bed, feel revived in the expansive bathrooms and then contemplate life with a glass of award-winning wine in hand.
