With a sublime location, deep in the forest and bordered by an estuary, the sea and forested mountains, Tranquillity Lodge is an enchanting escape into a nature-lover's paradise.
Tranquillity Lodge is situated in Nature's Valley at the eastern end of the Garden Route about 30km from Plettenberg Bay. Part of the Tsitsikamma National Park, this small hotel is built entirely from yellowwood - South Africa's national tree - and staying here is as much an ode to nature as it is an escape from modern life.
Keeping it small and intimate, Tranquillity Lodge has just seven en suite rooms, decorated with an earthy log-cabin style that reflects the romance of the forest. The honeymoon suite has a fireplace a spa bath and a double-headed shower. The dining room and lounge are a cosy haven of warmth and comfort; the canopy-level balcony is a wonderful place to relax and on warm nights a special place to dine as well.
A new addition to the Lodge is the sef-catering villa called Tranquil House, which is a modern triple-tiered beach house perfect for families, small groups or couples seeking total privacy and complete luxury.
Facilities at Tranquillity Lodge include two pools - one heated - and a lush indigenous garden with rock pools and water features attracting a large chorus of birds. A short walk from the lodge will take you to the lagoon, the estuary and the beach.
Nature's Valley is, surprisingly, a tiny valley of Edenic qualities: inside the Tsitsikamma National Park and bounded by forest-covered mountains, a lagoon and estuary and the Indian Ocean.
Seven double en suite rooms; bed and breakfast accommodation; Tranquil House self-catering villa; heated swimming pool and a natural pool with sundeck; bar; lounge; restaurant and large balcony.
In-room spa treatments; kayaking on the lagoon and estuary; barbecue; walking trails; birding; beach swimming; surfing; heated and natural pools; stand-up paddle boards and kayaks available

De Denne Guest House
Cadbury’s got his eye on you. And it’s a big one. He’s got the largest peeper of any land animal. And Suzie’s his missus so watch your step. Johan and Louise Keller are billed as the owners but what’s the bet their resident counterparts are the real deal here? This is a working farm. An ostrich one. Cadbury and Suzie are great, big, flightless birds. And probably top dogs.
