★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The five-star Tsala Treetop lodge Plettenberg provides a perfect position from which to explore best the many attractions the Garden Path offers. The Lodge is in an old grove of trees.

The Tsala Treetop Lodge is within Plettenberg and Knysna area. Readily available from Plettenberg Bay in 11 km and Knysna in 23 km along the N2 highway, the retreats signboards from the road are visible at the entrance to the access road, which leads guests to the security entrance to the Estate.

This unique getaway retreat features two different room types, namely the extraordinary Treetop Suites as well as the spacious Treetop Villas. The ten Tsala Treetop Suites are discreetly set in the forest canopy making for a unique accommodation experience.

Complete with their decks and private infinity swimming pools, the suites offer privacy and romance. The Treetop Villas feature two bedrooms which are ideal for families travelling with children and friends.

The Treetop Suites are equipped with convenient facilities and amenities to ensure guests enjoy a most relaxing and comfortable stay at this country retreat. Coffee and tea making facilities are available as well as a fully stocked mini-bar for snacks and refreshments.

The delicious and freshly prepared meals are beautifully presented in a glass-walled dining room. Guests may also choose to enjoy breakfast on the spectacular dining deck which is suspended above the forest floor. A light lunch and a 24hour room service menu are available for guests who prefer to dine in the privacy of their suite or villa.

Offering a relaxed and vibrant dining experience, the restaurant serves distinctive international flavours on its abundant and tasty menu in a magical forest setting. The wine cellar showcases the best of each wine region in South Africa. Ranging from the cooler coastal Sauvignon Blancs to the right Shiraz grapes which grow on the slopes of the Helderberg in Stellenbosch, each of the available wines has been carefully selected for guests to savour their beautiful flavours.
