My husband celebrated his 40th birthday in July and we had the privilege of spending 3 nights at Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Spa. We had a couple's Soul-ution spa treatment in their riverside "hut" that we will never forget - they are rated in the top 3 spa's in the southern hemisphere so I doubt we will come nearly... More

This is a lovely location for a 3-4 day break. The staff have the perfect blend of being professional and relaxed looking after everything you need. The spa treatments are really good. Sitting out for breakfast and afternoon tea looking over the pond is so calming. Some of the rooms are a little small for storage if there a long... More

This magnificent and sedate Retreat is surely the dream break away! At least 6 star plus! The rugged beauty of the unspoiled stark sandstone formations combined with the floral rarity and many historic Bushman paintings requires that the location of the reserve is quite remote but the scenic drive into Cedarberg mountains more than adequately compensate for this. The accommodation... More

We stayed at Bushmans Kloof for 4 nights to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. Having heard so many fabulous reports about this place, we really did wonder if it would live up to the expectation. We need not have worried - it actually surpassed it. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left, we could not fault anything... More

This is the best least-effort weekend away I've ever enjoyed. The staff were, without exception, friendly and very helpful. We visited on a "guest chef" weekend and enjoyed the additional cook-out offered. I strongly recommend this.

Our first and certainly not our last trip to Bushmanskloof! From arrival, the attention given to ensure we where taken care of, shown in detail all pertaining to our room, the facilities, done in a efficient and professional manner. The walks clearly marked and breathtaking, the floral kingdom in abundance. Our guide, superb, the Bushman art shown to us, very... More

We have just returned from a memorable stay at this luxurious sanctuary in the bush. The food was sublime, the wine expertly selected, the staff friendly & accommodating, the rooms warm and comfortable with special touches such as evening turndown service complete with candle, sweet treats and a bedtime story scroll. We enjoyed the nature walks and game drives immensely... More

Bushmen's Kloof is a unique experience, not safari, not spa, not gourmet dining, not absolute luxury but a package of every one of those pleasures all gently rolled into one - by incredibly attentive and unwavering willingness to please, by the staff - highly recommended

We had the most fantastic three days at Bushmans Kloof Retreat. We were thoroughly spoilt. The hotel itself was great and the service and attention to detail was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff and they were constantly at our beck and call for anything we needed. They went above and beyond the call of... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ancient landscapes of wind-sculpted sandstone and untamed bush frame this luxury retreat, 270km from Cape Town. Voted ‘Best Hotel in the World 2009’ in the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards, the malaria-free reserve is an ecological oasis for diverse wildlife, and custodian of 130 ancient San rock art sites renowned as one the ‘world’s largest open air art galleries’. Evening nature drives and exhilarating outdoor adventures offset an invigorating wellness focus, featuring an outdoor spa gazebo and spa treatments rooted in nature. Delectable cuisine distinguishes this authentic African wilderness escape, while luxurious accommodation includes Koro Lodge, the child-friendly private villa. ... more   less
