Best views in South Africa
We visited Grootbos after a safari, so we were a little worn out and wanted to rest. We didn’t take advantage of all the activities they offered, but they had everything you could imagine from hiking to cave exploring. We did the morning safari tour and the river cruise, and both were exceptional...relaxing, so educational and very fun. Jo and Nash, two of the rangers, were so unbelievably passionate and informative about the preserve, animals, medicinal herbs, and pretty much anything about nature you could ask...They were nature philosophers, and I could listen to Jo speak for hours. The rooms are very large, each with a breathtaking view! The furniture was a little uncomfortable for us, but the bed was great and we slept so well. The food in the restaurant was the best we had in Africa, fresh and simple and perfectly prepared. We didn’t want to eat off property at all because we looked forward to the meals so much. All of the staff were amazing and would go out of their way to make you happy - and we had a lot of requests and they took care of everything. I only regret that I didn’t make it to the spa.
What a privilege to have such a wonderful place on our Cape Town doorstep. The early morning walks through the milkwood Forrest overlooking Walker Bay are my favourite! And my heart literally skips a beat everytime when entering the boma for dinner all lit up by fairy lights. It is magical.
We had the most amazing 2 night stay at this amazing place. We stayed at Forest lodge, amazing views that takes your breath away. I honestly have no negative things to say. Everything was so perfect, the 5* treatment received from each and every staff member, the tours was very informative and absolutely memorable. The cuisine was delicious, housekeeping was on point and I must say you'd swear the staff knows you for years since everything was so specific. I spent my 30th birthday at this GEM. My partner together with the staff arranged a private dinner for me with pretty balloons and a delicious cake 😍 I honestly had the best birthday! All the staff made us feel so welcomed. Thank you to all at Grootbos for all your efforts. We definitely will visit again!
Just Amazing views
This lodge has been going since end 1990s and the service and facilities are just amazing. You are really in one of the World most unique biospheres, the Fynbos. The views are just endless . With sundowners on the patio...
Just Amazing views
This is a real treat with views that you will never forget. The Fynbos nature is unique to this region and you do not get it anywhere in the world. We were spoilt rotten. the Forest lodge rooms are generous with a nice verandah to chill on
