Returning to Tsala was such a joy - the lodge is as fresh and updated as I remember it, and the service and facilities better than ever. Sleeping up in the trees is a real treat - especially when you arrive back to a blazing fire in the room, a stunning 'in room' dinner, hot bath and then waking to...

We had suite 6; the architecture is stunning, the quality of the furniture and fittings excellent and innovative. Build quality is unbelievably high given the height and level of difficulty in creating such a structure; decoration is good but not perfect. Having an outside plunge pool up in the trees is barely believable (regrettably it’s not currently heated but they...

Stayed here three nights in a Luxury suite on a two week Garden route drive - Tsala was probably the best place we stayed and there was some stiff competition. Suite was wonderful with huge bathroom and an outdoor shower. The plunge pool was a bit cold but fun to do and look out over the trees. View was trees,...

Ok so when I heard African and fine dinning in the same sentence I was not convinced. I was completely wrong. The meal we had was as good as any fine dining restaurant i have eaten in. We were welcomed with the option of canopies ( which we declined ) and went straight to the table. We selected warm African...

My husband I didn't want to leave this cozy treetop paradise. It was so relaxing, comfortable, always clean, and the staff and food were amazing. The perfect retreat after 5 busy days in Cape Town! And super close to the cool beach town of Plettenberg Bay.
