Spend a magical couple of nights here in July. Words cannot describe the location. Truly unique an magical in the forest. We stayed in a forest suite and felt cut off from the rest of the world. Perfect place for a romantic getaway. Some small problems have to be mentioned. The road leading to the property is horrible at best...

We really liked the setting and location of the house which gave us a very peaceful feeling staying at Trogon. However, we are not satisfied with the management during our stay since they never asked us how our stay were or didn't seem to care much about us as guests, also we are not cat-people and Trogon's house cat Diesel...

Top staff, heavenly spaces, delicious meals ... We found a forest for a moment but the memory will stay with us forever ... Everyone has special times in their lives but this is one that will stay with us forever ... We stayed an extra night because we simply just didn't want to leave ...

Friendly reception. Helpful staff. Good meals. Good location for exploring Knysna and Tsitsikamma. Extraordinary location in the woods. Laborious approach the last kilometer especially when expecting oncoming traffic.

Convenient location if you are visiting Monkey Land, Tekwina, Birds and ElephantElephants. Other pluses were the great forest views and attentive staff . Food was really outstanding. Negatives were, no tissues in the room and heated blanket not working. Gorgeous venue!

This was a long awaited weekend away for my husband and I. The staff were amazing and super friendly, Lize-Mari and her team are top class! Special mention has to be made of Bruce & Rozanne (not sure of the spelling) for their attentive service. The breakfast is an experience to look forward to, as is the dinner - however,...

We were pleasantly surprised to find this gem. The nature surrounding it is exactly what the photos suggest. We had room nr 7. It's a more secluded room and has no glass view. The bath is nice and big. Awesome underfloor heating. Nice coffee. More water would be nice since their water is not drinkable. The staff is very friendly...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Trogon House & Forest Spa offers exquisite luxury, suspended in the tree tops of a forest reserve that stretches untamed along the Tsitsikamma mountains and beyond. Elevated into the tree tops, the lodges embrace the forest with see-through glass walls and sky-lit roofs, creating a true "nature forest" experience. What really sets Trogon House apart, is the absolute privacy and exclusivity in the midst of nature's pristine beauty. ... more   less
