Our two nights at Grootbos were bliss. This is a special place, beautifully designed to take full advantage of the gorgeous views of Walker Bay and the lovely private nature reserveite.
"Rooms" are actually detached suites with large living rooms, balconies, bedroom and two bathrooms, one huge. Almost every room has floor to ceiling windows with privacy ensured by the siting of the suites. The Forest Lodge building is an example of eco-friendly stunning architecture, with every possible opportunity to enjoy the vistas. Meals were delicious and much of the food, as well as all of the wine, is sourced locally. A lovely shop displays African art, crafts, and jewelry. We were impressed by the activities included in the full board room rate. Grootbos has initiated many very successful programs to support and train local community members. Staff could not do enough to ensure that guests were enjoying themselves. The pride they take in working at Grootbos was evident. We would love to go back!
