Reviewed yesterday NEW

After a ride on a bumpy road through the forest you reach the hidden place overlooking a valley. You feel being alone when you are in your chalet, but you are always welcome for a chat when you come to the main house. The food is excellent. The place is a good starting point to discover the nature around. The...

Booked this as a couple's getaway, no doubt the views over the forest and river are breathtaking - just a shame it was too cold to take a dip in your private plunge pool. The place is cozy, the lobby/reception is like a mansion interior where you will have breakfast overlooking the deck or dinner with a fireplace. The unit...

To Nix_Mpt Thank you very much for your review. We unfortunately have no control over the bugs in the rooms as we are in a natural setting. The thatch roofs have nothing to do with this, but the fact that we have had so much rain this year. We do have a pest company that comes in every month to...

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here, a perfect place for a romantic stay.

The management and staff made every effort to make it a very special experience. The individual bungalows are very private overlooking the...

We didn't know what to expect until we arrived, it's not too far from Sabie or Hazy View by car and the road there is reasonable, not deeply potholed like many of the roads around Jo'berg and the Kruger! The road down the track to the lodge from the 'main' road is not made up, lumpy in places but negotiable...

The lodge is beautifully placed on a cliff overlooking a river in the rainforests of Hazyview. The rooms and facilities are first class and the service was perfect. The staff were very professional and the food and wine was very enjoyable. I like the communal eating table which allows one to meet new people.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tanamera Lodge is nestled on the malaria-free slopes of the Sabie River Valley, offering luxurious accommodation and breathtaking Lowveld scenery. Being centrally located, guests are able to explore the Lowveld Panorama, including sights such as God's Window, the Blyde River Canyon and Pilgrim's Rest. We are 4 Star graded and offer beautifully decorated rooms with personal touches and attention to detail. Each chalet is complete with a tea and coffee selection, a log fireplace to keep you warm over wintry nights, and ceiling fans for hot summer nights. With the Kruger National Park's Phabeni Gate just a short 30-minute drive, our visitors may easily access this world-renowned Big 5 reserve on self-driven or guided safari tours. This is a birder’s paradise and home to birds such as the Narina Trogon and Purple Crested Turaco. Activities in the area include abseiling, white water rafting, microlight flights, elephant encounters, horseback riding and much more! We outsource spa treatments from massage to reflexology to manicures and pedicures, all brought to you in the privacy of your own chalet. A couple's massage is ideal for a romantic getaway.Our five magnificent Luxury Chalets are fully serviced and offer king-size beds with mosquito nets, stone baths, waterfall showers, fireplaces and plunge pools. In addition to this the two Honeymoon Chalets offer open-door outside showers on private decks with outstanding valley views and a sitting room and dining area. Each Chalet is secluded, private and surrounded by the unspoilt indigenous bush. Tanamera is perfect for romantic getaways. The main lodge area is tastefully decorated and comprises a dining area, a lounge and a comfortable bar area. You can step down onto our main deck where there is a rim-flow pool and absorb the exceptional views over the cascading Sabie River Valley. Meals are served in our main lodge area, on the candle-lit deck, or privately in your chalet or on your deck. Rates include dinner as well as bed and breakfast. ... more   less
