Set on 300 acres of African paradise, Cybele Forest Lodge and Health Spa is a charming old farmhouse with a wide verandah where you can sip sundowners whilst looking out over the magnificent gardens. Let the world slip away as you watch the monkeys cavorting in the giant Turpentine Trees. Take in the cool violet of the Jacaranda, the shocking pink of the Tibouchina and the scarlet umbrella of the African Flame Tree.

Wander down to the large secluded swimming pool with its comfortable sun beds. Here you can relax and listen to the creaking of the Bluegum Trees in the forest breeze and breathe in the heady aromas of Frangipani, Gardenia and Buddleia. In striking contrast to the vivid colours and lush greenery of the garden, the interior of The Lodge is warm and inviting. Furnished throughout with antiques, original art and exquisite fabrics, the main house is a most relaxing place to read a book or to browse through one of the many current magazines from all over the world. Daydream on the verandah, or visit the Bar to enjoy a drink or a special cocktail before sampling the Lodge's legendary cuisine.

The magic of Cybele emerges as you are shown to your room. Accommodation is limited to 28 guests, ensuring peace and quiet, and personal attention. Each of the air-conditioned suites and cottages has been furnished and decorated to exacting standards. Original art adorns the walls and every whim is catered for, from the well-stocked mini bar in each room - complete with freshly sliced lemon and lime for your gin-and-tonic and ginger for your tea - to the little sheep you’ll find on your pillow at night. All rooms and suites have walled gardens, many with views over the mountains, and six have climate controlled pools for your exclusive use.

Facilities in all cottages and suites include Mini Bars, Fireplaces, Under-floor heating, TV/Video and DSTV (6 channels), Heated towel rails, Hairdryers, Large bath towels & Gowns, Tea & Coffee making facilities and Charlotte Rhys toiletries.
