Elevated in the tree tops and using only natural materials, this unique spa embraces the forest by means of glass walls and sky-lit roofs, inviting the forest inside and creating a true nature forest experience. Our spa lies within the untouched indigenous forest on the most scenic and unspoilt stretch of the Garden Route, flanking world renowned tourist attractions. The picturesque seaside town of Plettenberg Bay, with its stunning never-ending beaches, ocean based activities and gastronomic delights is only a 15 minute drive away.

All you can say is wow once you get there it is about 1 mile along a very rough dirt track alongside the Monkey sanctuary set in the tree tops. The place is amazing and so peaceful. we had a 1 hour full body massage which was very nice.
