Amazing honeymoon destination!!!

Review of Intsomi Lodge
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Jun 2012
My husband and I had the privilege of spending a couple of nights at Intsomi as part if our honeymoon. We arrived around 21.00 in the evening, and were greeted with hot towels and a glass of port. We were shown to our room which was secluded and had breathtaking views of the forest. Everything was perfect. After being invited for dinner, we arrived back in our room to find a bath had been run (complete with rose petals, chocolates and champaign).

All the glass doors to the room opened up so it was as if we were living outdoors.
I loved the feeling of having a luxurious bath or shower "in the forest"! Amazing!

The food was creative and delicious. On our last day at Intsomi, we were the only guests at the lodge, and a full breakfast spread was prepared just for us. We had a little table and chairs on the large deck overlooking the forest.

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, we received excellent service!

I can't wait to visit South Africa again, to spend a few nights at Intsomi. Unforgettable!

Reviewed 8 January 2007

We had no idea what to expect because we wanted to visit Addo Elephant park - the website wasn't very up to date so we were a little apprehensive but they seemed lovely over email and the honeymoon package was good.

We were picked up in a jeep and the adventure started there...we drove into the heart of South Africa and the guide was very knowledgeable about everything...telling us stories on our journey. The lodge is nestled deep in the heart of a forest and it felt like a disney film set - big creeper trees etc. We were greeted by all the staff who were extremely friendly and couldn't be more helpful. The lodge was stunning - an old farm, wooden structure, open to the forest with a big log fire. The rooms were also amazing...a balcony overlooking the game reserve, a bed with a canopy and an open shower...I really felt at one with nature.

We were taken on trips to see the elephants of eden, to Addo (which was quite far) to see the sand dunes, to see the game...all the time being informed about everything we saw.

The food was spectacular...five course meals, amazing breakfasts - we felt like kings...and the service and staff were all so lovely...we cannot fault it...

we felt like kings...it was just a wonderful trip and so relaxing
