Five-star accommodation in the Western Cape

Nestled in the south-west corner of South Africa is the Western Cape. This bio-diverse area stretches north for 400km along the Atlantic coast and then east for 500km along the Indian Ocean coastline. The Cape is a popular tourist destination with Cape Town being the artistic hub of activity. When someone mentions the Western Cape, think rumbling mountain ranges, verdant valleys, a piece of the arid Karoo Basin, natural wonders, heritage sights, a rich and charming history, a rare floral kingdom, exquisite wine farms, culinary delights and activities that will get your adrenaline pumping. Grootbos Private Nature Reserve is situated in the heart of this Floral Kingdom and offers a luxurious South African experience with five-star accommodation embedded in nature.

An Exceptional Holiday

Grootbos is an all-encompassing holiday destination where people of all ages and varying interests will have an amazing time. There are two lodges that offer a unique experience. Families will feel welcome at our child-friendly Garden Lodge where our little guests are cherished and encouraged to explore. Couples looking for a romantic getaway will find Forest Lodge the perfect combination of utter seclusion, luxurious suites and views to take your breath away. Adventurists will have an endless choice between activities like horseback riding, shark cage diving and taking to the sky on a scenic flight. Naturists and eco-travellers can revel in the unique flora and fauna found in this area. There is a Social Responsibility Tour that explores the efforts of the Grootbos Foundation, which empowers unemployed members of the local community by teaching the principles of subsistence farming and horticulture. Any wine lovers, horse riders, hikers, bird lovers, animal enthusiasts, honeymooners or anyone with a taste for luxury and nature will find everything their heart desires.

Since 1991 Grootbos has been developing and perfecting everything that they wanted to offer to the public: a place where modern luxuries meet the raw beauty of nature in harmony. Self-standing suites are dispersed between the interlocking branches of ancient Milkwood trees that offer mesmerising views and privacy. The accommodation is designed to pamper with your own spacious lounge and fireplace, four-poster bed, en-suite bathroom and private wooden deck. To experience greater opulence there are Luxury Pool suites and the über exclusive Villa.

For those that want to witness the playful antics of the Southern right whale can do so by land, boat or plane. There are pristine beaches that are untouched with ancient limestone caves waiting to be explored and many more riveting activities. A simple spa treatment can leave you feeling completely rejuvenated at the Bloom Forest Spa that is sitting in the middle of an ancient forest. Fine dining is taken to new heights with destination dining and a gourmet cuisine. Nothing is ordinary at Grootbos, expect only the exceptional.

Explore this natural utopia from a seat of pure indulgence. From luxury accommodation and tranquillity to thrilling outdoor adventures, Grootbos has everything for an extraordinary holiday in the Western Cape.
