Tsala Treetop lodge
Enter your stay dates to view prices
Set amidst the treetops of an age-old indigenous forest, Tsala is a lavish celebration of the spirit of Africa. Emulating the monumental ruins of an ancient central African civilisation, the impressive stone-masonry entrance flanked by water features leads into a magnificent foyer supported by polished Blackwood columns. The afro-baroque décor with its earthy colours, rich textures and handcrafted fittings draws inspiration from the diverse cultures of Africa, yet remains integrated with the sophistication of the Western world. Whether from the exotically appointed dining room, the intimate glassed-in lounge, or the large open decks high above the forest floor, the views are all breathtakingly beautiful, encompassing lush forests extending across rolling valleys towards distant hills.
The magical allure of Tsala is irresistible to those appreciative of exclusivity and fine fare and desiring romance and adventure. Plettenberg Bay, the 'Nature Sports Capital of Africa' and premier seaside destination with its glorious golden beaches lies a mere 10km east of Tsala, while the vibrant town of Knysna, nestled up against the Knysna lagoon, is 20km toward the west.
Tsala achieves the perfect balance between nature and voluptuous luxury. Elevated wooden walkways meander through the trees providing easy access between the main lodge and guest suites. Experience the restful tranquillity of the forest while our discreet staff provides impeccable, personalised service.In Room Facilities:

Everything was good and we felt great about the hotel Restaurant was awesome Workers there so nice and they treated us like family Thank you for this amazing experience we had
We stayed in the Villa and it was an absolute experience of leisure with all the facilities. We got all types of drinks complementary and that was too cool
Just the private pool was not heated , so it can't be used in winters.
Tsala is such a fabulous place in a beautiful location. Staff were so friendly & welcoming. The rooms were amazing & there were so many nice little personal touches that were greatly appreciated. The food was sensational! Only wish we could have stayed longer.
- Treetop Lodge! I mean that really speaks for itself :))) - Our own pool - Three nice restaurants - Nice and helpful staff - Beautiful designed location - The bathtub - The elefant park next door
best stay near Cape Town, beautifully situated in nature, super friendly staff, delicious dinner and breakfast !!!!
The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Everybody went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and make sure we were comfortable. Breakfast was absolutely incredible!
Communication prior to my stay wasn’t great so the service when I arrived surprised me (pleasantly!). I just wish our stay was longer.
The room or house was very confortable and it was a romantic place to stay! the food was as expected very good and the service was quick and friendly. the drinks selection in the room was great. The surrounding area is very nicely designed and invites you to walk!
The bath ball for the bathtub was not refilled (at such a price you have to complain about that unfortunately). otherwise everything was great!
Unique accommodation up in the treetops near Plettenberg Bay. The room was amazing with a huge sitting room, patio, separate balcony and big bathroom with outdoor and indoor shower. Staff were very friendly and made sure we were having a great experience. Check in in time to make sure you get maximum time to enjoy the room but also the grounds of the hotel with its beautiful chapel and aloe gardens. Thanks to the family for a great stay!
Really beautiful property, the room was exactly as pictured and was amazing, we especially loved the balcony! The staff was friendly and nice!
The price is very high for what you get I think. The food was good but not everything we ate was 5-star.
We stayed at Tsala for one night in celebration of my husband's birthday. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Tsala. The scenery is out of this world, the reception area is absolutely beautiful and our Treetop Suite was warm and cozy. We could not have wished for a better place to spend the night.
We had dinner at Zinzi - The service was excellent, the food beautifully presented and oh so tasty! Zinzi's manager was constantly visible - She is doing a great job!
Breakfast was equally good and the sevice again was excellent.
You set a high standard at Tsala and Tsala is defenitely on our come-back list!
