Spend the most amazing week at the Crystal Springs Mountain Lodge. The lodge was beautiful and well looked after. The views were amazing - especially the sunsets. Got to see quite a few animals roaming around the resort - which was fabulous. Highly recommended and will definitely be back.

On arrival we were met with a warm welcome and a sherry or juice option. The check in was seamless and friendly. A very well appointed very fresh chalet awaited us. A home away from home with all the amenities possible! The spectacular views was breathtaking...especially the sunsets. A great place to enjoy peace and quiet in nature. Highly recommended.
