Relax alongside country lodge ponds in Natures Valley

Indigenous forest, rural farmland, towering keurboom trees and scatterings of palms surround Lily Pond Country Lodge, named after the glistening waters of its pond – rich in koi fish and visited by an array of birdlife. In the verdant Natures Valley, a stone’s throw from the Tsitsikamma National Park, this lodge is the perfect tranquil base to explore South Africa’s veritable Eden. 

Coastal towns such as Knysna and Plettenberg Bay are a short drive away, along with Blue Flag beaches, Robberg Nature Reserve and the Keurbooms River Nature Reserve. Guests can page through a book on the lodge’s deck overlooking the pond, take a dip in the rim flow swimming pool that mesmerisingly seems to flow into the pond itself, or take a stroll through the surrounding 12 hectares of forest. 

The lodge provides varying accommodation consisting of Garden Rooms, Luxury Suites and a Honeymoon Suite. Each suite has French doors opening onto a private patio or garden while the Honeymoon Suite has an added spa bath, deck and private garden leading into the forest. Indulge in an all-inclusive dining experience at the on-site kitchen where meals are served with a view of the lily ponds.


  • All suites have air conditioning, tea/coffee-making facilities, an honesty bar, TV and Wi-Fi
  • Spa offers massages and reflexology treatments, while the Jacuzzi can be privately booked 
  • The lodge has a fusion restaurant with breakfast served on the patio and lunch and dinner overlooking the pond 
  • Activities include whale watching, hiking, golfing, horse riding, tree-top canopy tours, mountain biking and boating
  • Set in tranquil gardens on the edge of Tsitsikamma National Park
