We had a 3 night stay at Tranquility Lodge in Nature's Valley as part of a 3 week trip around South Africa. I was a little unsure if my expectations for this place were going to be met because from the website, location and some of the reviews I read it sounded too good to be true. It was not. This is an amazing place.
We were met by Vivjer who was very welcoming and helpful. Our room was lovely although it had beetles dislayed on the wall! The arrangement of the lodge is excellent. On the upper level there is a lovely balcony walkway wrapping around a lounge and the eating area.
The food was not what we particularly expected to be a highlight but aside from a super breakfast, there is an evening dinner service where the small number of guests at the lodge are cooked a seriously good 3 course meal (for just 220 rand - £20 per person, inc. wine).
We did not spend much time around the lodge and its pool which was nice because on the doorstep there is the stunning beach. During our stay in SA we saw some fantastic scenery and the beach at Nature's valley was in the top league. One evening after dinner we took a walk along the beach; there were no clouds and a night sky like I have rarely seen in my life. Beautiful.
Nature's valley is a great location to visit many of the attractions in this area also. Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, Tenikwa, Bloukrans Bungee are all on the doorstep and there are some great walking routes along the coast and around the area.
Tranquility lodge has a brilliant dog who is very soft but very well behaved. It also has canoes to borrow on the lagoon.
We had a great stay here and the only downside is that it is about 10000km from London and we may never get the chance to go back.
