We had the most amazing stay and experience with the perfect balance of luxury and nature. The forest cottage may be rustic, but it was perfect for us and catered for all our needs - just the way we enjoy our holidays. We could indeed hear the river from the cottage and the hiking trails although tough in certain spots, were amazing. The staff is very friendly and professional at all times. ... continued.

Good morning Anita,
We just want to say thank you. We had a wonderful stay at Forest Creek Lodge. When I wrote in the book just before we left I forgot to write about the Spa treatment, we really enjoyed the massages and the manicure and pedicures. I enjoyed the massage alot and it really did help to resolve my muscle spasms. We could see that you invested in your staff by training them. We hope to visit in summer again. Warm regards,

Good day Anita.
Thank you very much for the lovely break. Tyla and I had a fantastic time. Was a great rest and much needed from both of us. Please say thanks to all your staff as they do a great job and always made sure we were happy with our stay.
Kind regards.

Dear Anita,
We had the time of our lives! Thank you for the detail with which you decorated the Bee Eater cottage, absolutely exquisite. It was wonderful to share and experience your piece of beautiful nature during our stay.
We left a packet of dried apricots in the drawer for you (where the kettle and toaster are standing).
We will definitely be back. I already have all my friends visiting your website, I won’t be surprised if they are planning their next break at your lodge.
Thanks again! (and please thank Jojo and the rest of the staff for their warm welcome and service of the room).

We had an amazing stay here for our 6 year anniversary. We were welcomed with champagne in our room and chocolates on the bed. The staff were super friendly and always helpful. The hike up to the waterfall was beautiful and serene. Food was nice but a little on the pricey side. Overall a really really nice place!

Dear Anita and colleagues, Komeshan and I thank you all for a really super weekend at Forest Creek. Your staff were outstanding - friendly, kind and so accommodating to our needs. Thank you for the complimentary massage - what a treat and very gracious of you for doing that! We are so happy we came back after all these years. And we will definitely be back in the future.
Take care. Best, Dhashni, Komeshan and Jago :-) - June 2017
Dear Anita, I thought I would quickly reply and tell you of our experience. We were very warmly received and thank you for the upgrade to the Nerina suite. It certainly is a lovely setting and we had a splendid walk down to the river, satisfying our curiosity around every corner. The catering to our personal request for a plunger with ground coffee was also taken care off and we duly appreciated a cup after the walk and again first thing in the morning. The food was delicious and my children were quite jealous of our treat in having crème-brulee for desert. Also, a big thank you in accommodating our changing request for the massage treatment on Friday and moving it about. All in all a pleasant stay with your staff doing a superb job of making us feel at home. All in all, a memorable evening. Wish we could afford a longer stay but will definitely refer our friends looking for a similar setting.
Thank you - Cobus Buitendag - June 2017
The best vacation / holiday place ever taken in winter. A romantic experience indeed, we definitely enjoyed the stay and the staff hospitality. The food is of the best quality and tasty.

A huge THANK YOU for everything you did for all our guests. You went out of your way to make them feel comfortable and welcome and they all loved staying with you. They said your lodge is absolutely beautiful and that your staff were amazing.
Thank you also for going backwards and forwards with me to arrange everything. The wedding was absolutely incredible. Di and Ann were fantastic and gave us the wedding of our dreams. It couldn't have been better.

Thank you Anita and Team for the most memorable weekend. Staff was very professional and helpful. The Beach House is beautiful with a great view - and awesome attention to small detail. The romantic dinner under the gazebo exceeded expectation. And you have a GREAT chef in the kitchen :) best food ever. The hike to the waterfall is a MUST do ... fairy forest :)
Hope to see you again soon.

Thank you so much – everything was wonderful: the staff were amazing & I loved the Beach Cottage that was so peaceful with a magnificent view. Your attention to detail in all the rooms was fantastic – loved the turtles on the wall, the butterfly napkin rings at breakfast – everything!!! You really do have a piece of heaven.
We didn’t see Paulos to say thank you, so please pass on our thanks.
Best regards,
Thank you so very much for all your hospitality during our stay at Forest Creek Lodge. Paulos, Jojo and the whole team there are incredible, you all provide impeccable service.
Forest Creek truly is a magical place and just wanted to thank you all for making out stay so enjoyable. The Cloud Forest is spectacular and we really enjoyed our hikes, we spent over three hours there on one walk and explored the beautiful nature. We felt so blessed to have had the experience.
We just wish we were able to stay longer! Hope to be back to our new favourite place soon.
