Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Several options here. Garden Rooms, Luxury Suites, Luxury Garden Suites and a Honeymoon Suite. All air conditioned. All have an honesty bar, fridge, tea & coffee, CD, iPod docking station and a TV.

The four Garden Rooms have wide sliding doors - and when we say wide we’re talking three and a half metres wide. They lead out onto private patios with views over the gardens and lily ponds. Twin or king-size beds. Open plan bathrooms with oval baths and walk-in rain showers.

So, the two Luxury Suites had to over do it, didn’t they. Their sliding doors are bigger. They’re 4 meters wide. So there. They also lead out onto their own private patios and overlook the gardens and lily ponds. They also have that marvellous invention that is underfloor heating. Cosy. Extra length twin-beds or king-size beds. Open plan bathrooms with double baths and separate showers.

But the Luxury Garden Suites are even bigger. They too have the wide sliding doors. They too lead out onto their own patios - but this time overlooking the lily ponds and forest. These suites are decorated in a modern, Afro-Zen style and have their own separate entrances, sitting areas, extra-length twin-beds or king-size beds. The open plan bathrooms have freestanding baths and double indoor/outdoor showers which open onto their private courtyards.

If that doesn’t sound like enough romance head for the Honeymoon Suite. Yes, yes,  wide sliding doors that open onto a wooden deck and large, private garden next to the evergreen, indigenous forest. This is also all Afro-Zen style and has its own separate entrance. There’s a lounge area, extra-length twin-beds (Really? On your honeymoon?) or a king-size. The open-plan bathroom has a spa bath and double indoor /outdoor shower opening onto a private courtyard. Bath robes too, so you’ll look all smashing and suave.

Plenty to gaze at. Look out for kingfishers and cormorants. There are lots of koi fish too.

If you’re heading out, you’re less than a 10 minute drive from the beach and lagoon. The drive to Betty’s Bay is a stunner and it’s a quieter alternative to Boulder’s Beach. Wanna see penguins? Quite frankly who doesn’t?

Of course, you must explore the Tsitsikamma National Park. Explore, explore, explore. The boundary stretches some 5km out to sea. Southern Right whale come inshore to breed when the time is right. There are two rest camps - Nature’s Valley is quieter to walk around than Storms River but both are jolly splendid.

Naturally, there are many hiking trails. One of the most famous is the Otter Trail. The trail ends about 10 minutes away from the lodge. The Dolphin Trail includes portage.

You can play golf, go horse riding or fishing if you’re in the mood.

Adrenaline stuff too. Bungee jumping above the Bloukrans River, scuba diving, snorkelling, kayaking, tubing down the river and exploring the forests from the top on tree canopy tours.
