A wonderful venue in a magical forest environment. Excellent breakfast! The dirt road to the venue is already an adventure (mind the monkeys...) and the location is very strategic. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

A fantastic setting in the tree tops with beautiful 360 views from the all glass suites even in the bathroom! Use of the exclusive forest spa is a must with excellent service from knowledgeable unobtrusive staff. Ultimate forest experience, only let down was the food served which was not of the same standard for dinner with excellent breakfast. You definitely... More

Spectacular place to stay in. We loved the beautiful rooms, especially the one facing the pool. Food was excellent and we surely stongly recommend Trogon House and Forest Spa. The only thing we found missing is that credit cards are not accepted which does not make things easy when checking out.

This was absolutely incredible, the entire experience was out of this world, amazing food and service, wonderful spa and massage session; we really felt special and secluded. In the middle of the forest, with Elephant Sanctuary next door, just beautiful and relaxing. Only drawback is the the access, quite a dodgy and bumpy road to get down to it, so... More

Trogon house is one of those places that you want to be successful. You also don't want people to know about it because you want to keep it all to yourself. I couldn't have imagined it. The forest. The quiet. Add to that stars and luxury. The staff were amazing. Friendly and professional. Very efficient. And also very sincere. You... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Trogon House & Forest Spa offers exquisite luxury, suspended in the tree tops of a forest reserve that stretches untamed along the Tsitsikamma mountains and beyond. Elevated into the tree tops, the lodges embrace the forest with see-through glass walls and sky-lit roofs, creating a true "nature forest" experience. What really sets Trogon House apart, is the absolute privacy and exclusivity in the midst of nature's pristine beauty. ... more   less
