A dedicated team including marine biologists and conservationists help you to appreciate what makes this area so special.

Grootbos private reserve consists of two lodges, the original family-friendly Garden Lodge and the contemporary Forest Lodge.
Grootbos Forest Lodge is an architectural masterpiece of sophisticated contemporary design, with 16 luxury suites nestled in a 1,500-year old Milkwood Forest, with glorious views of the Atlantic Ocean. The rather extravagant main lodge offers glass walls which embrace and accentuate the ocean and fynbos views. It comprises a restaurant, bar and gallery area. Wooden fireplaces and subtle lighting enhance the warm, romantic ambiance. Outside is a deck and stylish rimflow pool with stunning panoramic ocean views.
Each of the 16 freestanding suites at Forest Lodge is stylishly furnished to provide a blend of aesthetic beauty and supreme comfort. Each has a separate lounge, full bathroom, filter coffee machines and minibar. Cosy fireplaces, romantic canopy beds and spacious bathrooms make this an idyllic hide-away for all romantics. All 16 suites have private wooden decks with panoramic sea or mountain views, and some have a small plunge pool. Here you can wake to the blissful sight and sound of birds singing and waves crashing in the distance.
Daily fresh fruit baskets, under floor heating and heated towel rails add to the elegant extravagance. Grootbos Private Reserve combines excellent service with an array of nature activities, supremely comfortable accommodation and delicious food.
