“Paradise in the sky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

This place is worth every loti that you spent there. The staff, food accomodation,tranquility and class will surely calm grumpy mothers to be with morning sickness.I felt better that weekend. The staff is wonderful, they make you feel at home the moment you arrive, i am surely going back with my kids some day. Moelo

I am trying to come up with one word to describe this little piece of paradise. i cant come up with just one word, this place is simply great, the location, the accomodation, the foood, the hospitality, the wondeful views, the beautiful sounds of nature, the tranquility and the absolutely wonderful staff. everything just ads up. I am hoping to go back very soon.Hopefully there will be a day spa as the cherrie on top..

Room Tip: Chalet 6 is very goos as it is secluded from the rest. very nice and private.

Located in the Ts'ehlanyane National Park in the Northern section of the Kingdom this lodge offers splendid views and hikes in the surrounding mountains and valleys; combined with luxurious accommodation and 5 Star cuisine. The lodge is secluded and upmarket and only caters for a maximum of 12 guests.
Service is outstanding and this being located right in the heart of the mountains makes this a stunning escape from every day life!

Spent 4 nights in a stunningly beautiful place, that was made all the more special by the friendly staff who went out of their way to make our stay exceptional. The views are awesome, and the small touches are what justify the 5 star rating. The mountain lodge rooms are definitely worth the extra price. Put it on your list of must do's.

Room Tip: Room1 and 6 are secluded

A the end of a 38km road (with 27 road humps - took us an hour to go up) is the mountain lodge.

If you arrive on motorbike (as we did) be aware the entrance in is up a reasonably steep unmade road - fine in a car but could be tricky two up in wet conditions.

The lodges are gorgeous rondavels, large with four poster beds, a sunken bath and underfloor heating.

As it is so far away from anything else, most people opt for the dinner bed and breakfast option - dinner menu's are restricted to around three options for the main course - so it's worth letting them know well in advance of any dietary requirements. Having said that, the dining experience is very good, the choice of wine was also good - and we had the infinite luck when Andrea (who was ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS) organised dinner on the 'boma' under the stars - which was a real night to remember!

Horse riding, trekking and massages are available - just one suggestion would be create a rondavel for the massages as this would be more peaceful than the room above the lounge which they currently use.

This place surprised us - huge and beautiful cabins with gorgeous views. Friendly staff who laid on dinner under the stars. We were only here for one night, but gutted to leave and would go back given half the chance.

Room Tip: Worth paying for the luxury huts. They are memorable.
