Cycad Lodge always offers professional and great service. We've visited twice, once for pleasure and once for business and both occasions the stay was excellent. As a Muslim family that travels often, finding Halaal meals out of the major cities can become a challenge, so Cycad Lodge is always a great option for us

This is a lodge that caters to the Muslim community. Alcohol is not allowed on the premises. As a result no pork based meals. I was not happy to see staff being made to kneel on the floor to clean. Breakfast is very basic, minute steaks are not my favourite at breakfast time. Just hard to digest. The facilities are...

Excellent place to stay. Well priced and well maintained. Restaurant served great food. Staff extremely friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Good value for money - ideal for visiting the Mpumalanga sights. I can imagine that it would be also good for a business trip.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cycad, situated 370km's east of Johannesburg, nestled in the heart of Mpumulanga's capital, Nelspruit. The lodge boasts a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere in contrast to the buzz outside, where the city's malls, theatre, and business district are conveniently a stone throw away. The Cycad is the perfect combination of corporate and holiday. Brought about with years of planning, this dream see's the family getaway, and businessman's needs evolve in one. Guests can expect a warm welcome, with service being of top priority. The ambience set is one of low lighting and luxury, with accommodation masked by the botanical feel of the Cycad gardens, instilling a warm sense of security and privacy. For a more intimate view, enter the Gallery & Virtual Tour section and experience for yourself how best Cycad can suite you or your family's needs, from our Standard, Executive or Honeymoon package, to Family Unit and Self-Catering Chalet's. ... more   less
