Booked a last minute 2 night getaway and was very pleased with the whole experience. Martina and Klause were excellent hosts and as it was quiet at the time we got a surprise upgrade to the honeymoon suite which was truly stunning ! We will most certainly be back. The lodge is stunning with the most amazing views of the Lake.

We spend a night at this spectacular lodge. From arrival right to when Martina and Klause waved us goodbye was one amazing experience, thanks to the wonderful hospitality of this very special couple. We felt wonderfully spoiled by their attention to detail and continuous striving to make our stay memorable. The rooms are beautiful and the view breathtaking. Breakfast was superb! I totally agree, we would go back in a heartbeat...

My husband and I decided to take a short break, and we really wanted to just switch off, relax and get a sense of timelessness from our holiday.

We decided to stay at Lodge on the Lake, which consists of an in-house spa and 5 bedrooms, each with its own balcony overlooking the lake. This place is super special and one of the most spectacular places that I have been privileged enough to stay at.

As we were in one of the most beautiful locations in the Western Cape, we knew we would be in for a treat. Our expectations have been surely exceeded. Our stay was made even more amazing by having Martina and Klause as our hosts. Originally from Germany, we were superbly spoilt with delicious home cooked, traditional German dishes and a dessert from Martina’s great grandmother. She was kind enough to share this recipe with me, and I will be trying this soon.

On our first night, we went for dinner at Salina’s Beach Restaurant. When we arrived back at the Lodge, Martina had the Jacuzzi set up for us with champagne, candles and soft music.

On our second night, we were treated for a 3-course candlelight dinner for 2. This was so special!

Martina shared her interesting life journey with us, how she met Klaus and living their happily ever after.

Lodge on the Lake is a place that spoils you with spectacular views, excellent food, fabulous hosts and incredible service. We will surely be back!

Room Tip: Honeymoon suite has the best views and is beautifully decorated
