9.6.Exceptional.
  • 8.0.Very Good

    Tsala Treetop Lodge is a 5 star romantic hotel set in amongst a forest of trees and overlooking a tree clad canyon. The rooms are outstanding as is the service. The view from the balcony is wonderful and the in lounge real fire was a great touch. Our room had its own plunge pool which was a bit cold but on the one hot day this was very refreshing. Service is a bit amateur but very enthusiastic and kind. The thing that let down the property was the food quality. My potjie was excellent but the rest of my party found their food dry. The omelette in the morning was greasy, smelled of overcooked oil and was virtually inedible. The choice on the buffet was good. I would stay here again but hope food gets an uplift.

    Tranquil and elegant

    Nestled in tree tops, nothing but tranquility and elegance surrounds you at Tsala Lodge. It was a great place to do day trips, and return for a relaxing and lovely meal. The staff was extremely helpful, particularly Karin who helped sort out our outings. This is a definite return place for us:)

    Fabulous spot but food a let down

    This is an amazing property with 5 star facilities and service to match. It was let down by the food unfortunately but otherwise I would highy recommend this romantic spot.

    Treetop Delight

    We really appreciated the genuine care of the staff and the magnificent treetop setting. Dinner was good, but breakfast among the trees was the real highlight. Both the rooms and surrounding gardens were exquisite.

    Absolute Perfection

    Few places will match the experience of staying here. Expensive, yes, but worth every penny. The accommodation is superb and the rooms so comfortable. The grounds fabulous, service immaculate and almost guaranteed that you will see either monkeys or baboons on your doorstep. Wish I could have stayed longer.

    Lives up to expectations - highly recommend.

    Tsala lives up to its reputation and your expectations. It's a magical haven for R&R. The attention to detail across the site is superb. We enjoyed two nights in a luxury villa, with incredible views. The rooms are immaculate, supremely comfortable and well presented throughout, and the outdoor shower was a great surprise - nothing like waking up and smelling nature. A minor drawback is the pools aren't heated, and ours had a lot of canopy cover so didn't benefit from the sub's heat either (it's noted though that Tsala are aware of this and working on it despite significant engineering challenges!). We dined at both Zinzi (the public restaurant) and Tsala (the guests restaurant), and enjoyed both but the latter did step it up a notch. Both are really well presented and comfortable, and boast strong wine lists. The service was generally superb, save for a few individuals that were cold and somewhat aloof (one a Manager). Given the price point of Tsala it did leave a slight bitter taste in the mouth unfortunately. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to visiting again.

    Place where you can be one with nature.

    It is just a brilliant place to stay. Away from all the hustle and bustle of city and not too far from it either. You need to be there to experience the difference. Most helpful management team I have ever come across.
