We had two nights at Tsala and wish we could have stayed longer. The lodges are out of this world. From the private decking area and plunge pool to the beautiful decor of the rooms to the big glass windows that allow you to look over the treetops to the massive bathroom and outdoor shower - it was all perfect....

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.

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.
