Tsala Treetops and Hunter's Hotels

We have celebrated a very special anniversary a little while back...
We booked into the magnificent Tsala Treetops to celebrate....


We were welcomed by our most gracious host who spent at least an hour talking to us about the history of their "little piece of heaven".....by the way...tsala means elevated resting place in Xhosa...
I made no mention that it was a celebratory weekend however the attention to detail was unbelievable....the first night on returning to our suite, champagne on ice and a romantic turn down awaited us with candlelight from the entrance to the magnificent bathtub .....

the entrance....elegantly furnished in afro baroque ......







the treetop villas are suspended in the canopies of the trees and reached by a canopy boardwalk...

they are as romantic as you could imagine, each a large suite comprising of an exquisite bathroom, outdoor shower, bedroom and lounge area...
a large stonewalled fireplace serves as the divide....
each suite has its own  infinity splash pool 






















The breakfasts were eye candy and the restaurant Zinzi, where we had dinner, is tastefully decorated and serves outstanding food....








But the best of this little Eden, is this delightful little chapel in the forest on the grounds and the old country house gardens....equally as stunning as any of the most spectacular gardens of Europe...












What an awesome venue for a small wedding!

Thank you Hunter's Hotel group for an unforgettable few days!
