What we love

We love the earthy, wooden and rich feel that echoes throughout this magnificent resort, there is an exceptionally homely feel that provides a pleasurable rest bite in-between experiencing the magical exploration that this pocket of the Garden Route provides.

Tsala, Plettenberg Bay

10 Rooms & Suites

Setting the scene

Towering amid treetops of the indigenous forest, the lodge is a characterful diamond in amongst natural forestry overlooking handsome cliff tops and crashing oceans.


There are just 10 suites and 6 villas spread across the resort, the suites each consist of a bedroom, sitting room, bathroom, private terrace and luxurious plunge pool. The villas are larger with 2 en suite bathrooms and 2 bedrooms with a vast terrace and private pool. The design is woody and authentic yet is the height of deluxe and grandeur where the fireplaces in each suite and villa are in our opinion the most charming feature.


Enjoy local traditional and modern cuisine in the glass walled dining room and dine among the nature in this truly spectacular atmosphere, alternatively take al fresco dining to a whole new level and eat on the daring dining deck among the epic forestry of Tsala. Zinzi restaurant is an African inspired menu matched by African textiles and tribal themes that ensure a truly memorable experience where the kitchen team deliver time after time to an extremely high standard.


There is certainly no shortage of things to do in and around the resort; Meet elephant, monkeys and wild cats, interact with whales, dolphins and seals, go surfing and kayaking, jump on board a luxury jet or a high speed boat, go bungee jumping, sky diving and mountain biking, enjoy cultural excursions, play world class golf courses or take advantage of the magnificent spa. In between, be sure to relax in the blissful seclusion of your own private suite or villa and listen to the natural sounds of the jungle.


Children of 10 and above are welcome in this safe and practical environment. Babysitting services are available on request; children's menu's or even bedtime stories are on offer. The accommodation has living spaces meaning lazy days on the lodge are just as pleasurable as going out and exploring all that this magical area has to offer.
