Established by Andre and Ilse van Heerden to offer five-star accommodation in a countryside environment, Summerfields Rose Retreat and Spa features luxury tent-suites which absorb the beauty and tranquillity of the surrounding countryside to make for a perfect getaway. The resort is located just outside Hazyview, Mpumalanga and is 10 kilometres from the Phabeni gate of Kruger Park, where guests can enjoy easy access to some of Africa’s incredible wildlife species before coming back to an evening of pampering at the luxurious Spa.
A sprawling 100 hectare estate, Summerfields blends Africa’s natural splendor with an indulgent atmosphere to provide ‘barefoot luxury’ – an invitation to kick off your shoes, get comfortable and enjoy being pampered by the resort’s expert staff. Although a truly romantic destination, the resort does welcomes families though it operates a strict child policy; children under the age of 12 are only allowed in the Summerfields Kitchen for breakfast and lunch in the interests of both safety and consideration for other guests enjoying a taste of the finest things South Africa has to offer.
Summerfields Rose Retreat & Spa works on three tenets – comfort, relaxation and romance. All rooms at the retreat’s River Lodge are luxuriously adorned with amenities which guarantee a peaceful and comfortable stay; air conditioning and roof fans keep the rooms cool, whilst outdoor showers and luxury baths offer a perfect accompaniment to relax at the end of the day. All Tented Suites ensure total privacy, a chance for couples to enjoy some alone time together amidst a soundtrack which encompasses the resort’s many differing natural features, including the sounds of cascading water and choirs of birdsong by some of the colourful indigenous species which inhabit the area.
The River Lodge consists of 12 luxury tent suites, each room showcasing an elegant yet simplistic décor which accentuates the natural beauty of the retreat’s surroundings. Specially designed furniture, percale linen and freshly cut roses provide flourishes that will make you feel at home, whilst amenities such as private fridges, electronic safes and satellite television offer a sense of fully pampered luxury. Utilizing local culture, the on-site farm and the height of current luxury standards, Summerfields offers an entirely unique take on South African hospitality.
