Wonderful experience. Very tranquil. Loved every second of it! Would no doubt go back for a second visit ... The staff was wonderful and extremely friendly. Food was great. Loved the flapjacks for breakfast. But my favorite must have been the little Kitty (Diesel) ... Maybe it's because I am a cat lover ... 🐱

I've already recommended Trogon House and Forest Spa to nearly everyone I know. What a wonderful place. Utterly beautiful, nestled in the gorgeous forest surrounds. Lovely, friendly, attentive staff - I felt SO well looked after. Delicious food, amazing views, luxurious beds, the most glorious forest-bound glass-walled fireplace-warmed spa I've ever been to - really, nothing to dislike. And of... More

Magical environment, stunning accommodation and most excellent staff. Thanks to Lisa-Marie and staff! Just what a tired couple needed to get away from the rat race. The hike down to the river was so worth it!

What an amazing place. Far far away from the city life which was perfect for us honeymooners who are always on the go. Surrounded by the forest can be a bit scary at times but once you get used to it, it's so beautiful. Want to try something new? Have a shower in the forest!The poor reception makes it impossible...

Trogon House is an unbievably originale and Beautiful Lodge set in a spectacular location. The hospitality was exceptional and food and wine great. Would love to visit the place again in spring or summer, when there are more animals.

Amazing place to stay and a definite when I go back that way. The location was amazing with a breath taking view from the pool side. The room was just what we needed to start off our Honeymoon and the spa was just the cherry on top. Amazing place with amazing staff

How this place was ever founded leaves me bewildered. It is so unique and an absolute hidden gem!! Getting there is a little rough ride but then again, being in a forest this is what one must expect. One drives along not knowing when you are going to reach your destination and when you get there and into your room,... More

Close to nature, in the tree tops. A perfect getaway for a relaxing weekend. Highly recommend the spa as part of your stay. Professional staff too! Stayed in the double deluxe room, number 4. Breakfast was a 3-course meal, the oats was my favourite! Would return in a heartbeat. Thanks for the great stay :)

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Trogon House & Forest Spa offers exquisite luxury, suspended in the tree tops of a forest reserve that stretches untamed along the Tsitsikamma mountains and beyond. Elevated into the tree tops, the lodges embrace the forest with see-through glass walls and sky-lit roofs, creating a true "nature forest" experience. What really sets Trogon House apart, is the absolute privacy and exclusivity in the midst of nature's pristine beauty. ... more   less
