Beautiful lodge in stunning location
Stayed for two nights as a couple. We both absolutely LOVED our stay here - the room was spacious, spotless and had a stunning view over the countryside and down to the sea. Room was very well equipped and modern. Welcome and service from Rose and team was lovely - we felt looked after and Rose was able to provide advice on what do to during our stay. The estate that the lodge is on is huge and we were able to walk / hike around - there are vineyards, a small reservoir and some hiking trails - it’s all beautiful. We can’t wait come back and spend more time here.

Amazing Lalapanzi
We had an amazing time at Lalapanzi Lodge. A beautiful, cozy lodge in the mountain, with ocean views. They have a swimming pool in the middle of a pine forest and every luxury you could dream of. We would love again to go if we ever have the chance.

Peaceful and relaxing stay
We enjoyed a 2 day stay in the suite while visiting the nearby Waterkloof restaurant. The suite was spacious with a separate bedroom, bathroom, sitting room and outside terrace. The lodge is in a lovely peaceful, private estate and the views across False Bay are stunning. Rose and all of the staff were very welcoming and couldn’t do enough for you. We found the food to be good rather than excellent (with the exception of the gorgeous fillet steak!) and this is the reason for not making our review a 5 star rating overall.

Great service, cool view, lovely room!
This lodge is a bit out of the way, but it has a spectacular view and the whole team is very friendly and super helpful. We checked in late and hadn't made dinner plans, but discovered that nearly everything was closed. The chef scrambled to put something together for us for dinner, and it was great. The next morning, again having failed to plan ahead, we asked Rose to help us find a driver for the day, so that we could visit local wineries. While we enjoyed our breakfast, she was able to get us all set up! Great service, cool view, lovely rooms. We highly recommend staying here!
