Photo of the Day - Five Star Luxury in the Overberg

Posted under Travel Blog by Grootbos on 31st July 2013

Only 2 Hours from Cape Town is this Secluded Destination


Forest Lodge first opened its doors to guests in the spring of 2004, eight years after Garden Lodge. Where Garden Lodge is earthy and homely, Forest Lodge has a more contemporary element. It seeks to bring attention to the surrounding natural beauty with its clean lines and floor-to-ceiling windows. Unfortunatley in 2006 a veld fire rapidly made its way across the Overberg and consumed Forest Lodge and three suites that were in its path. The very next day reconstruction began. After a lot of hard work the newly built main lodge and nine luxury suites opened its doors eight months later.

Forest Lodge now has 16 self-standing suites that offer guests supreme comfort with a private lounge, chic en-suite bathroom, spacious bedroom and wooden deck. The honeymoon suite also includes a private plunge pool for further exclusivity. The uninterrupted view over Walker Bay is absolutely priceless and every room has double volume windows to take advantage of this. If you so wish, you can even soak in the sight whilst enjoying an outside shower. Forest Lodge is luxury nestled in an eco-paradise
