Close your eyes and imagine yourself….
…enjoying a coffee on your private patio surrounded by banana leaves, exotic plants and fruit trees… …taking a stroll to the swimming pool while observing the most colourful birds and listening to the variety of their chirps… After a sunny day, you refresh yourself in your spacious en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower… or, why not take a pleasant bath instead? After you get dressed, you can enjoy a fine diner in a quality restaurant nearby for some fine dining while enjoying a glass of local wine and experiencing warm hospitality… Back at the lodge, you tune in for some Netflix on your Smart TV for some ultra-relaxation. Then, you enjoy a good night’s rest in your king size bed. In the morning, your breakfast is served on the outside patio of the historic and characteristic Manor house. You taste tropical fruits from the garden, excellent cheese and cold meats, homemade jams and compotes and choose a warm breakfast of your liking. Wait a minute! Your imagination can become reality. Welcome to Swellendam Country Lodge.
