“Escape from reality”
Reviewed August 10, 2011

Six unbelievable days lost inside a magical forest being pampered by the most amazing hosts will always be Trogon House and Forest Spa for us. Its very name brings to life an escape from reality. With its raised forest walkways, private spa, amazing food and décor supported by all round spectacular views it is guaranteed to still even the most stressful mind. A special find that you want to keep secret but feel compelled to share with others of a like mind.

Chantal and I try to be tourists in our own country and have a good overview of holiday accomodation. We do not to go back to the same place twice as there is so much to see out there. However, the view, accomodation and amazing service at Trogon House made us feel so special that we have to go back!!! Try it, you'll love it!

In a nutshell an amazing place run by an amazing couple! We were so bold over on our arrival as we had not quite expected it to be of such a high caliber. The pictures we had seem although beautiful did not truely portray the stunning and lush surroundings that you are literally immersed in. The rooms with there large windows and magnificent views made you feel that you were literally sleeping outside with nature. Also the location makes it perfect for nature lovers as its surrounded by wonderful trails and yet for those who prefer more of a hustle and bustle its a short drive away from Plett. So its located perfectly for all types. Definitely worth a visit and we will be going back!

My wife and I and our six year old twins stayed at Trogon House for two nights on 12 and 13 April 2011. We had a great experience and cannot recommend the place highly enough. The setting is incredible: a maze of private cabins, dining areas, sun decks and swimming pools linked by raised walkways all set amongst virgin forest, with spectacular views over the forest canopy. The hotel is small, about 5 rooms in total, and has a very intimate feel. The standard of the rooms, service, and food is absolutely top notch - world class five star in my view. The owners, Mynhart and Susie live on site with their 12 year old daughter and were excellent and proactive hosts. At their suggestion we had an excellent boat trip up the nearby Keurbooms river. Trogon House is now B&B, however we were offered an excellent three course dinner on both nights that we stayed.

Room Tip: Not recommended for under 5s due to heights

The place was beautiful, the surrounding area even more so. I loved the fragrant air of the forest! So many glass walls so there is a view of the forest all the time. Service is great, friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful furnishings. On the doorstep of Monkey land, the Bird Sanctuary and the Elephant Sanctuary. Spa area was beautiful, sauna and Jacuzzi face the open forest, it gives a wonderful peaceful feeling. Weather did not permit swimming but the pool looked very inviting. Only about 6 rooms in total and fairly spaced apart so it's very cosy and quiet. The meals were delicious and creative. My husband and I agree that it was an incredible experience and we would love to go again someday.

We spent a lovely quiet weekend away, just relaxing. Trogon House is in the Forest and it seems like you're completely out of touch of the real world. Yet a short drive to Plettenberg Bay.
