Certificate of Excellence
Welcome to the Sky Lodge, a unique stone and thatch getaway in the Hartbeespoort Dam area. The Lodge is situated on 50 Hectares of magnificent mountainside, and offers majestic views of the Hartbeespoort Dam and surrounding Magaliesberg mountains. Guests may choose between our 2 exclusive self-catering lodges on top of the hill - Red Sky lodge or the new Blue Sky Lodge, which are both suitable for larger groups and are near the conference centre, or the smaller Stone suites lower down the mountain. The RED SKY LODGE sits on top of the hill with views that will simply take your breath away. The lodge has 7 superior bedrooms with 6 en-suite bathrooms, 3 with spa baths and can accommodate up to 14 guests in style. There is a large farm style kitchen with big gas stove, lounge with huge stone fireplace and DSTV Hotel bouquet. The covered patio leads out onto a private pool and large wooden viewing deck with a fantastic shade awning to fight off the midday sun. Our latest addition is the fantastic BLUE SKY LODGE, which is a private lodge on top of the hill with 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, including the honey suite with spa bath and the "Dungeon room". It has a large lounge with big stone fireplace and a wooden deck that overlooks the valley. The Blue Sky Lodge is close to the Red Sky Lodge and conference centre, and larger group often book both lodges for total exclusivity. The lodge also has its own private pool, pool bar area and large function boma overlooking the valley. The STONE SUITES are luxury self catering 2-sleeper suites with a double bed, DSTV hotel bouquet, kitchenette, private patio and its own braai boma area overlooking the valley.

I think that I should inform you that I don't appreciate being woken up at  06:45 by the people building or construction that is being done. We chose this place for tranquility and peace of mind to get away from the noises of city life....More

The overall stay at Sky Lodge is great the only downfall for me was having no electricity in our suite during n after it had rained. I would definitely go back for another stay and recommend it to friends and family.
