Tsala Treetop Lodge is located approximately 8km from Plettenberg Bay and 24km from Knysna, along the beautiful Garden Route. The word 'Tsala' means elevated resting place and that is exactly what this property is. Situated high above the indigenous Tsisikamma forest, this is a very private and exclusive lodge with elevated wooden walkways meandering through the trees linking the main area with 10 private suites. It is romantic, private and secluded and perfect for honeymooners and luxury travellers alike.
The lodge's design was inspired by ancient African ruins and it has built using stone-masonry and timber, with large glass windows to look out across the rolling hills and valleys of the area. Each suite is perched in the tree canopy and has a large outdoor decking area complete with an infinity plunge pool. They are beautifully furnished and have wonderful bathrooms with huge indoor and outdoor showers, a toilet 'with a view' and a large bath. The sitting room has a cosy wood-burning stove and overlooks the forest. There is also a complimentary port carafe.
In the main lodge area is a lounge, library, bar and restaurant. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner offering a choice of Eastern, European and African cuisine. There is a large decking area for al fresco dining and resident vervet monkeys who live in the forest. As well as dining at the lodge you can either drive into Plettenberg Bay or dine at Hunter's Country House, which is 'next door' on the same country estate.
