What a lovely surprise to be greeting with such friendliness at Forest Creek Lodge & Spa. We had the best honeymoon ever.
Although the road is at places not the best, our little Ford Fiesta got us to our destination without any trouble. We were greeted by the friendly Paulus who also assisted with our luggage. Our room was absolutely gorgeous and we thoroughly enjoyed the quiet. The fact that we struggled with cellphone reception, was not a problem - who wants to be disrupted by phones while in such a loving setting. The staff was very helpful and even assisted with making fire for our braai (due to the wood being damp). Even the two cats, Madam & Lucy, made us feel welcome and Heidi, the dog, took us on a guide down to the river. Anita & Mush was ever so friendly and assisted where we needed. The spa was very lovely and relaxing with a beautiful view.
We would like to thank everyone at Forest Creek for making our honeymoon the best time ever.
We will surely be back for our anniversary.
Thank you so much!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Forest Creek nestles in a gorge of the Steenkampsburg Mountains, which is the end of the Drakensberg Mountain range. Set in a Private Nature reserve of the Mpumalanga escarpment. The gorge is softened only by a blanket of shrubs and trees which have grown in this malaria-free zone over millennia. It is only when one gets to the gate of Forest Creek Lodge that the rock-strewn grassland is left behind, one climbs up, and up, and enter this little enchanted world. This winter come and enjoy some good food and wine snuggled in front of our log Fireplaces, and go home feeling indulged On this magnificent piece of land we hope we have catered for everyone, from Luxury guest suites at the main lodge* to the Forest Cottage, Bee Eater, The Beach Cottage & Sunbird self catering options. During the cooler months, come and enjoy the Big Fireplace in the Lodge Lounge. There are hiking trails along the stream under the canopy of trees. Treat yourself to an hour or two of relaxation in our Forest Spa ... more less
