Staff was SO friendly and accommodating. The hotel is extremelt relaxing with the rooms right on the river. If you go, make sure to get a deep tissue massage, it was the best I’ve ever had! If you’re going to the bush (sabi sands/Krueger Park) this is a good way to break up the trip from Nelspruit to the Bush. I would definitely recommend making a trip here.

Away from all the Touristy circuit, is this amazing Glamping experience in a fully operational Macadamia & Litchi Estate!

Owner-driven, this retreat is just what you require IF you are overworked, stressed out with all the happenings of this world and is desperately seeking solace, peace, serenity, calm and bliss!! All in one place - WOW!!

Have been in Southern Africa for the past 10 days and after quite an active 3 nights in VIC falls, we selected this haven to sit back, relax, rewind, rejuvenate and reminisce the wonderful journey of life till date, before we move onto the Safari Lodges...

We stayed in the Forest Room , the highest category tent in this retreat (total inventory I think is about 11 tents and 1 Forest Room).

The Forest Room is a serious Glamping site with thick greens all around , a cozy heated bed, a standalone bath tub in the centre of the room, a beautiful deck overlooking the wonderful gardens, lovely amenities with roses all around. Absolutely romantic and blissful.

We also used the Spa twice each and it was absolutely wonderful. Well trained masseurs, knows their strokes very well and the oils they use are seriously rejuvenating.

Food : Stunning! All veggies fresh from the garden directly, what an high quality selection of cuisine. Wow! Very well presented & plated too.

Near the spa , there is a beautiful river stream flowing through. You can just sit there for hours just listening to the waters flowing by and just pampering yourself to this amazing natural environment.

Walks : If you love walking, it cannot get better than this. Fully operational Macadamia & Litchi farms with winding roads , fully secure ..... A taste of the real Africa!

This retreat is certainly NOT for people who are looking for activity, gaming, sightseeing etc.

It is incredible for people who just want to have "Me Time", pamper yourself with a wonderful spa, have some amazing organic high quality cuisine, this is THE place for you!!

Absolutely PROUD of the owners who have created this paradise.

Jack the F & B Manager who also is the AGM of this retreat, is absolutely customer friendly & focussed. We wish him and the owners the very best in taking forward this dream retreat. Lawrence is a super star too in the restaurant with Khunya supporting him with a lovely African smile!

We have passed on some constructive feedback to Jack for improving some areas, so as to make it a even better retreat for future guests. All the very best!!

If you want a spa treatment in a gorgeous setting then you should go and try out the spa at Summerfields. I had the Swedish massage which was heavenly, and all done in a beautiful setting overlooking the river. Sparkling wine is offered on arrival, gowns are luxurious and cuddly and the staff are extremely pleasant. Highly recommended

Went to Summerfilds with my family and stayed in the tends. The room is nice and the view is amazing. But we had a terrible experience when on the second night the room power went off 21:00 pm and we couldn’t find nor contact one single staff member to help us. Had to sleep in an open room with no heat in a 10 degrees night. When in the next day we told the manager she couldn’t have cares less. We asked her to talk to the owner, who was at the hotel, and give us an answer about the problem. She never returned to us with a solution just a lazy “thank you for reporting the problem”. For the price and for been a “luxury” hotel, it was definitely not worth it.
