Five-Star Quality

The idea of an all-inclusive holiday package originated from Gérard Blitz who started the Club Med resorts. The idea was to provide lodging, food and activities so that guests can relax on their holiday without stressing about accumulating bills. The package at Grootbos includes accommodation in one of the opulent suites, breakfast, lunch, dinner, a picnic on the beach and most land-based activities. Experienced guides can take you across this mesmerising landscape to disperse knowledge and provide transport.

The accommodation at Grootbos is perfectly nestled between ancient Milkwood forests and the diverse flora. The self-standing suites are adorned by the lush foliage on the exterior while the interior is designed for ultimate indulgence. Each suite has its own private deck, a very chic bathroom, large comfortable bed and spacious lounge. The finer details, such as leaving a treat on the pillow and dimming the lights for your return from dinner, are qualities that make the experience memorable. This attention to detail is carried through to our kitchen and general staff as well. You will be waited on with respect and friendly smiles whilst the kitchen creates exquisite meals. Breakfast and lunch are comprised of a buffet starter, an a la carte hot meal for your main and at lunch you will also be served something sweet. Dinner is the epitome of fine dining as guests can enjoy a sundowner with the spectacular view and then sit down for a six-course taste sensation in one of our five-star restaurants. Horseback riding, hikes, flower safaris, bird watching, lazing by the pool, picnics on the beach, a Social Responsibility Tour, land-based whale watching and cave explorations are some of the exciting activities awaiting you.

Grootbos caters for an array of travellers; from romantics and business delegates to nature lovers, eco-tourists and families…there is something for everyone. There are special packages for honeymooners that will include a romantic turndown and accommodation in one of the Luxury Pool Suites (if available). There are child-minders that will watch over the little one so parents depart feeling relaxed. For those wanting more there are soothing spa treatments, shark cage dives, whale-watching boat tours, wine tours, scenic flights and countless other activities to do in the area.

Grootbos is an all-inclusive getaway that will be etched in your memory forever. This eco-lodge promises excellence in a natural nirvana that will relax, rejuvenate and inspire a renewed zest for life.
