A luxurious tranquil haven

From the moment we were greeted outside on our arrival at Tsala Treetop to our thoughtful gift on our departure from this beautiful hotel no attention to detail was spared. Our welcome was warm and sincere and we were brought a drink before being shown to our lovely lodge. The rooms were tastefully and comfortably furnished with everything one could wish for, a large comfortable bed, a log burning stove, luxurious oval bath, in and out door showers, high end toiletries, our own plunge pool and sun loungers, amazing views of the treetops in the ravine from floor to ceiling glass windows, and to top it all a well stocked complimentary bar. Our room was very private and we were sorry that it was too chilly to use the unheated infinity plunge pool as it looked so inviting. We much appreciated the beautifully handwritten notes that were waiting for us on our arrival and each night together with goodies on our bed. In the restaurant the front page of our menu was addressed to us personally – a nice touch. The food was excellent as was the service. Breakfast was served either inside or on the lovely verandah where we were able to watch the birds and butterflies. There was a wide choice of fresh fruit, yoghurt, pastries etc as well as a cooked breakfast option and nothing was lacking. The hotel is in the beautifully kept grounds of the Hunters Estate where we were able to walk safely and explore the chapel, Zinzi restaurant and the Hunters Country House Hotel. Karin really looked after us like friends and we were sad we were not staying longer. We would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat. There is only one thing that would prevent us from returning - an ll½ hour flight!

Absolutely beautiful and relaxing experience. Very Romantic ambience. The breakfast and dinners are delicious. We were visited by aLoerie and it’s baby and lots of naughty monkeys. Beautiful rooms and bathrooms and exceptionally clean. The property has other restaurants within walking distance. Will be back!

What a find. Definitely something dfferent and just keeps giving. Firstly you are welcomed into the beautiful building which is the reception and also houses the dining room. Then you are escorted to your amazing lodge, which is in the treetops. Always wanted a treehouse when I was a kid, but thIs is soooo much more. In the morning opened the curtains to be greeted by a monkey looking in. The restaurant is very relaxed and food was beautifully presented and tasted amazing. Didn’t want to leave this place, hope to return one day.

Perfect yet again

This was our third stay here and we were enchanted yet again - such a very special place for relaxation and tranquility.
Thank you so much to the Tsala team for all your care and thoughtfulness.
We were sad to leave, but are already planning to return next year!
Thanks again for everything. Warm Wishes, John and Julie McBride

Much more than just a hotel, stunningly beautiful.

Writing this thinking that there is no way I can really do justice to it. The lodges are beautiful, spacious and very private (enjoy the outdoor shower as well as the indoor one). The views are stunningly beautiful and it’s a great location to explore Plettenberg and visit maybe the Birds of Eden and Monkey Gardens there.

You are hit by the beauty of the place as you first walk into reception, very tastefully done and service that is superb (the menu was even personalised with our names!). We stayed two nights and wish we had stayed one or two more to enjoy walks around the grounds and just soak up being in a beautiful place. A beautiful hotel and a beautiful experience, so glad we went there and would recommend to anyone.
