There's hardly any place that makes you feel so welcome as the Lalapanzi Lodge. We have been many times but when we plan our next holiday our choice has been made! We love the atmosphere, the hosts who are the simply the best, the hospitality, the rooms, the views, the food, everything! We just can't wait to go back!

Loved the big room, the quality of the finishes. The view over the bay is breathtaking, and step outside where the scent of forest is refreshing. The food and staff is top notch. I recommend this as a serious consideration for a place to stay when in the area.

We booked Lalapanzi lodge for the weekend of our wedding. I stayed there the night before with my bridesmaid and got ready on the day of the wedding and then we also stayed two nights after the wedding. Our experience was truly a memorable and special one.

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful lodge in March this year (2015). We were visiting from the USA and wanted to take my mother-in-law somewhere special. We took two rooms for a couple of days and have absolutely no complaints. The hosts and staff are excellent - so warm and welcoming. The rooms were perfect - clean,... More

Lalapanzi Lodge is ideally located to explore the Elgin valley wine country, which we've now done twice - just to make sure it is as good as we remembered. Our suite was spacious, and had all the desired touches and great views of the valley out to sea. The spa treatment was outstanding. Our Ostrich steak dinner was first-class, and... More

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Lalapanzi Lodge. The hosts and staff were very friendly. They accommodated us with our special dietary requirements, which was a great plus. The Lodge is situated on large grounds and the suites have amazing views of Gordons Bay and Strand. Relaxing and tranquil is the best way to describe this holiday. Also,... More

Part of a small study group we used this base for two nights. Excellent greeting and friendly staff - nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Worth eating in in the evening - plenty of wholesome food and a good breakfast. Rooms were of high standard. The views across the tree tops to the sea is something to cherish.

I recently stayed 2 nights at Lalapanzi Lodge, high on the mountain off the Sir Lowry Pass road. Such an unexpectedly beautiful lodge with spectacular views over Gordons Bay..
