We like Tsala and think it is rather special. The two-bedroom villas work well for a group of four, while the suites are particularly suited to honeymooners and couple as they are extremely romantic.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Tsala is situated in Harkerville Forest between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route. It is about an hour's drive from George Airport.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
The lodge is beautifully designed with all of the rooms elevated into the trees and joined by wooden walkways. There is a comfortable lounge with Internet access and Wi-Fi, and a first-class restaurant, Zinzi , which serves international cuisine. Service is discreet and efficient.
The 10 suites and 6 two-bedroom villas are made of wood and glass, with floor-to-ceiling views of the forest outside. Extremely spacious and completely secluded, they consist of a living room with balcony, an attractive bedroom, and a large bathroom featuring a huge oval stone bath. They each have their own infinity plunge pool on a deck outside.
Tsala is perfectly placed as a base for exploring what we consider to be the most attractive section of the Garden Route. The surrounding area is very scenic, with a spectacular coastline, beautiful lagoons, sandy beaches and miles of forest.
