Lily Pond Country Lodge


Relax alongside country lodge ponds in Nature’s 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 Nature’s 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’s Standard Suites have French doors opening on to a private patio overlooking the ponds. The Luxury Suite boasts a lounge and doors opening on to an indigenous garden while the Luxury Garden Suite has forest or pond views from their terraces. The Honeymoon Suite has a spa bath, deck and private garden leading into the forest.
