8 of us stayed in 2 2 bedroom villas. They were fantastic. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a spectacular living space. Hard to describe how the rooms are suspended above the valley and photos really do not do it justice but I will attach a couple. The villas are beautifully appointed and again great coffee making facilities - not a...

Pure luxury. Very warm and effusive welcome. The suites in the tree tops are amazing and an ideal spot to spend Valentine's Day. The food and service in the restaurant was very good. The only slight downside was when we checked out - the reaction by the man in the front office was indifferent at best. He just nodded to...

Tsala is a very cosy hotel but still luxurious, the service is great and the manageress lovely. Some lovely old fashioned touches in the rooms such as sherry decanter and glasses. Perfect for relaxation, quiet and peaceful, yet close to so many things that it is easy to get to them within 5 mins in the car Delicious food and...

We were travelling as two couples - stayed in one of the villas. Massive space with a splash pool, balcony overlooking the forest, big bedrooms with floor to ceiling windows, great bathrooms with optional outdoor shower. Stunning views. Great service, very attentive but discreet. Dinner was very good. 15 mins drive from Plett. Loved this place.

Excellent food, beautiful accommodation and wonderful staff made this a very restful and nurturing stopover. The grounds were quite beautiful and we enjoyed our cabana very much. Wish we had stayed a bit longer.

This is one of the nicest places we've stayed in South Africa. The Treetop lodges are so private and luxurious. We've been delighted with it. Some small improvements to be made with breakfast service but overall it's absolutely a 5 star experience. I'd recommend for romantic break / honeymoon. Never want to leave !

Ok, my partner was not keen on this initially 'how much ! We could go to Europe for the weekend for that !'. However afterwards, he thought we should have spent longer ! It's complete over the top luxury that you need to do, especially if you've been driving and sightseeing. Our 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment complete with large...

The views at Tsala was amazing no doubt. Unfortunately it needs some serious maintenance. The door handle to the balcony was broken pulling out of the wood, the chairs outside has not been varnished Ina Lon long time, the armrest of the chairs were broken and chairs itself very uncomfortable. Interiors was in much better state but the floors are...

I am so sorry to hear that your stay with us at Tsala was not what you had hoped it would be.
