Last March my girlfriend and I spent two nights at the Phantom Forest Eco Reserve.
Despite the fact that during one of the two days of our stay it rained for most of the time, we loved our stay.
The best thing about this hotel is that it is located on a forest hill. The place has about a dozen tree suites, which are scattered across the hill. The tree suites are well separated from each other, so you can enjoy full privacy. To get to the tree suites there is a wooden walk way, which only makes the experience more exciting.
We were not very enthusiastic about the decoration, design or finishing of the huts (we found the design rather conservative), but our tree suite had an amazing view over the Knysna bay. Moreover, on the terrace we had a jacuzzi, where we could stay without being watched by anyone. Simply spectacular.
At the hotel you can also have breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is truly excellent and food prices are a bargain, especially compared to European levels. We found the 6 courses or so for dinner a bit heavy on the stomach though.
I must admit that this experience does not come cheap. The place is rather expensive, but normally one has to pay for unique experiences.More
