The setting of the Lily ponds with the indigenous forest in the background is really beautiful. The Lodge is most attractive and we had a delicious dinner each of the three nights that we stayed there.

Starting whith arriving in Lily Pond we felt relaxed. We had 4 nights and enjoyed that much- with the first step into our suite, room no.7, the delicious dinners, friendly staff, so much fun with Tony and Maria (thank you so much 😜). Whenever possible, we will return!

We stayed 3 nights and were delighted with the setting and grounds, the room, the food and the excellent service. Positioned on a quiet road off the main N2 within a short distance of the beach at Natures Valley it would be hard to find a more peaceful and relaxing place to stay.

We had four days at this lovely property, set in beautiful gardens surrounding the lily pond. It was faultless from start to finish - from friendly, hands-on management, to the quality of the food and the artful cooking, the comfort and amenities in the bedroom and the overall ambiance of the place.

A tranquil and pretty hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was lovely and over looked the lovely pond. The location was good and was close to a lovely beach and Tsitsikamma national park and Plettenburg bay. Really enjoyed our stay here.

Surrounded by a magnificent setting (Nature’s Valley) and their own paradise (the lily ponds) you will be pampered by the outstanding evening cuisine and scrumptious breakfast. Spacious, individual rooms each with their own patio and view of the ponds make you feel at home. It has been an unforgettable experience every time I have been there, definitely one of the...

We organized our 2 nights stay in Lily Pond quite spontaneously and did not take the time to get much information before taking our decision. And what an amazing instinct we had to book in this little piece of paradise! The beautiful, bucolic and quiet environment gives you an instant feeling of peace. I particularly loved the look of the...

We stayed at a suite and enjoyed it a lot. Great spacious room with a good view on the lily pond lake. We didn't have a lot of luck with the weather - it was raining during our stay - but the staff always helped us out with recommendations for suitable activities. Great dinner and breakfast.
