Nestled in the Grootbos private nature reserve, just 160km from Cape Town, this award-winning eco-friendly sanctuary is an excellent way to experience the beautiful Overberg region with its luxury free-standing suites, sensational sea views, tranquil setting, gourmet cuisine and warm hospitality. Set amidst ancient Milkwood forest, the classically styled Garden lodge is the ideal five star family hideaway. One- and two bedroom suites offer sumptuous en suite bathrooms, private lounges and terraces with outstanding ocean vistas (the sunsets over Walker Bay will stay with me forever!).
The fresh sea air certainly works up an appetite and the fusion cuisine of Chef Duane Lewis tempts the taste buds, as does the fine Cape wine selection. I settle for the freshly caught line fish... a good choice. And now I've got fine cotton linen, a 100% down duvet and exceptionally comfy bed to tempt me back to my room!
