We initially booked a 1 bedroom room which turned out to be a studio, although very nice was not as expected. On request, we were moved to a 1 bedroom chalet which was great. The long climb up to the chalet was well worth it, there was a huge deck area overlooking Wilderness and the sea. The chalet was very...

We stayed here for the last two nights of our honeymoon and what a fantastic way to end our trip. The staff were amazingly helpful and extremely professional. The breakfasts are just fantastic. The extra services they provide are extremely thoughtful. I just absolutely love this place, would most definitely come back.

Me and my husband took a road trip with our bike for the night. When we got there they showed us our room and that was all we got just a room and average breakfast. The bar was closed and theres nothing to do there. No lounge with fireplace or snax to buy to eat.

Arrived for a night , and for the first time ever in Wilderness. Travelled with a 19 month old baby and hotel was very accommodating. Reserved through AGODA. Wilderness is a real surprise! Much more intimate, beautiful and accessible than Knysna. Lots of beautiful indigenous forest to explore and good restaurants! Pomodoro and Serendipity nearby We were well received and...

Beautiful location with a scenic view of the ocean. Rooms situated amongst trees on the upper part of Wilderness. The rooms are cosy with a little deck for a drink or two outside. Dinning room caters for a very delicious breakfast. Will definitely recommend the omelet.

We loved the Lodge! We had a couple of matters that weren't correct, but were immediately fixed within 10 minutes of bringing them to the attention of the Reception. We in fact tried to stay an extra night, but this wasn't possible. We will definitely be back.
