This is the best hotel I have been ever in my whole life. The hospitality was beyond outstanding they check the room twice per day they prepare every single thing for you even the tiny details they will take care of it. For the facility I have not seen this type of facility in my whole life, a suite on the tree this is amazing with the the best view of the mountain everything around, very peaceful. The Clean is very very clean rooms. There were two restaurant inside the Tesla all of them are amazing and the food is nice. Tesla there is the bar in my experience that I would not see any hotel with this type of experience in my whole life like what they have

8/10 Very good

Tsala Treetop Lodge is a 5 star romantic hotel set in amongst a forest of trees and overlooking a tree clad canyon. The rooms are outstanding as is the service. The view from the balcony is wonderful and the in lounge real fire was a great touch. Our room had its own plunge pool which was a bit cold but on the one hot day this was very refreshing. Service is a bit amateur but very enthusiastic and kind. The thing that let down the property was the food quality. My potjie was excellent but the rest of my party found their food dry. The omelette in the morning was greasy, smelled of overcooked oil and was virtually inedible. The choice on the buffet was good. I would stay here again but hope food gets an uplift.

Treetop Delight
We really appreciated the genuine care of the staff and the magnificent treetop setting. Dinner was good, but breakfast among the trees was the real highlight. Both the rooms and surrounding gardens were exquisite.

Absolute Perfection
Few places will match the experience of staying here. Expensive, yes, but worth every penny. The accommodation is superb and the rooms so comfortable. The grounds fabulous, service immaculate and almost guaranteed that you will see either monkeys or baboons on your doorstep. Wish I could have stayed longer.
