Lagoon Lodge has five safari-style suites secluded among ancient milkwood trees on the edge of the Hermanus lagoon. Stone and glass walls open onto private decks with gorgeous mountain views. Each room has netting surrounding a king bed, a sitting area, writing desk, fireplace and ceiling fan. The bathrooms are fitted with a large romantic tub, copper sink and a private outdoor shower for an African bush experience.
Boardwalks under a canopy of trees lead to the lounge where drinks and meals are shared outdoors or by a fireplace. A heated plunge pool overlooking the mountains is a popular place to spot birds.
The cuisine is fresh, delicious and locally produced. Begin the day with a hearty breakfast of freshly baked muffins, homemade jams, fresh fruit and a hot meal. Lunch can be enjoyed at Lagoon Lodge, as a picnic under ancient milkwood trees or around roaring fires indoors if there is a chill in the air. Sumptuous dinners are prepared with organic vegetables from the garden and served in a variety of beautiful settings.
