Garden Lodge is being rebuilt and is currently closed to guests. Forest Lodge will remain open and will be accepting families with children of all ages until Garden Lodge re-opens in April 2022. Bookings are now open and we look forward to welcoming you to our newly built Garden Lodge from 01 April 2022.
Lush. Welcoming. Inspiring. Step into our Garden Lodge and feel the warmth of African hospitality combined with architectural mastery. Explore the fynbos on horseback or foot, admire the striking views or simply sip on a refreshing drink at our welcoming bar.
Whether it’s the bright green of our freshly grown micro herbs or the sunshine yellow of the egg yolk from our very own chickens, every meal at Grootbos is an explosion of colour, texture and taste. In fact, nearly half of all the ingredients we use are sourced from our Growing the Future food production and social upliftment project, based right here, on the reserve.
Whatever dish you choose, you’ll get to experience the tastes of this unique landscape and its people, in a warm and welcoming atmosphere that makes you feel instantly at home.
Stroll through our fairytale gardens and discover 11 free-standing and light-filled suites that you simply won’t want to leave. Soak into a bubble bath and absorb the views and tranquillity, sink into your luxurious canopy bed or simply enjoy each other’s company in your separate lounge or on your private wooden deck.
Garden Lodge is very kiddie friendly and the staff went out of their way to make our 6 year old feel right at home.
We stayed in the cosy Garden Lodge with its own fireplace, rain-shower and huge bed. It was an absolutely delight!
Our accommodation in the Garden Lodge was exemplary, the cuisine outstanding and the Guided tours executed by fully trained and knowledgable guides.
We had a lovely room in the Garden Lodge and enjoyed every second of our stay.
