A place I can stay forever.... Enchanting & special, we loved every moment and were treated like royalty! The rooms, rim flow swimming pools, lit candles in bathroom, fire place, bubbly on arrival and fruit platter ... What more can I say! My daughter thought it was heaven, they served her breakfast in bed when we went for breakfast. They... More

We had just the one night here more is the pity! This place is superb on every level. The service is excellent. The suites were amazing and the view spectacular! There is absolutely nothing more I can say other than congratulations to all the staff for maintaining such high standards. Our meal in the excellent Zinsi restaurant was fabulous. I... More

I stayed one night at Tsala at the end of a week-long trip to Plettenberg Bay, and it was undoubtedly the highlight. I only wish I could have stayed there the entire week! William and his team extended a very warm welcome and we're very friendly and helpful. The chalets, set amidst the treetops, are spectacular. It was cold when... More

A hotel with a difference! My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. It's a hotel unlike any other and we enjoyed our experience. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I loved the little sweet treats they left in our room every day! My only criticism is the decor could be updated in the sleeping area, particularly the... More

We have just spent the most magnificent 3 nights at this wonderful lodge. In celebrating our 25th anniversary every staff member from Adele in reservations through to the management team and their staff ensured that we really enjoyed this memorable milestone. David welcomed us and showed us to our villa which was immaculate with the decor complimenting the natural surroundings.... More

I was told this was one of the best hotels in the world when I booked our trip-certainly wasn't disappointed. Beautiful location, spectacular situation, opulent luxury, great good. Only regret is it wasn't a longer stay.

Id heard lovely things about the famous treetop hotel near Plett, and for the price I rightfully expected top-end. Instead what I found was a throwback to the early 90s with dated accommodation, poor attention to detail, (indoor fireplace had ash and half burnt wood from prev guests, pool deck needs varnishing), boring breakfast and a shift manager who could...

What can I say.. 5 star experience definitely. When we first arrived, greeted warmly by security. Got to reception and found staff William already waiting to receive us. Got offered tea and cookies and recommendations on where to go, what to do. Brought to our rooms and William gave thorough details on the facilities, very helpful! At night, we had... More

We spent 2 weeks touring Cape Town and the Garden Route for our honeymoon and Tsala Treetop Lodge was simply the best place we stayed in. It is probably three times the price you would pay for a decent B&B on the Garden Route but it was worth every penny. Any trip wouldn’t be complete without a stay here! It... More

Tsala is one of the most beautiful, exotic and romantic places we've ever stayed. We particularly enjoyed having an outside shower (as well as one inside), the cold plunge, a fireplace and the downturn service that includes hot water bottles. The hotel restaurant, Zinzi, is excellent, and the hotel breakfast great.
