Just WOW!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Feb 2024
Just WOW!

We booked a three-night stay at this amazing romantic getaway. The lodge seamlessly integrates nature, allowing guests to enjoy both luxury and the surrounding beauty. Nestled along the Sabi River, the entire property is enveloped in lush greenery, truly making you feel like you're walking in paradise.

Upon arrival, the friendly team welcomed us with refreshing drinks, the perfect way to cool down after the journey.

Luxury in a Tent:

Our accommodation, or rather, luxury tent, was a delightful surprise! We were allocated to Unit 11 "Machou," which offered a beautiful stream view. The tent was meticulously maintained and impeccably furnished, with each piece blending seamlessly with the environment. The highlight was the spacious patio featuring a huge bathtub overlooking the stream, perfect for a romantic soak or a relaxing afternoon bath. Alternatively, guests can unwind on the comfortable sun loungers.

Romantic Touches:

Summerfields offers a romantic bath package, which we opted for upon arrival. It was the perfect choice after a long drive. The bathtub was filled with roses, scattered generously on the floor as well. We were also treated to sparkling wine and candlelight, adding to the ambiance and setting the mood.

Dining with a View:

The well-designed restaurant caters to both couples and groups. With the excellent weather, we loved sitting outside, enjoying the breathtaking views of the Sabi River. The seating arrangement is perfect for both romantic dinners and leisurely breakfasts. The service in the restaurant was outstanding, and we would like to express our special thanks to Presica and the talented Chef Nimrod.

Spa Bliss:

As Summerfields is also a spa retreat, we couldn't resist booking a massage. We opted for the 60-minute option, which turned out to be a mistake – the massage was so incredible, we wished we had chosen the 90-minute or even 120-minute session! The massage tent is located just steps away from the Sabi River, allowing you to drift off to sleep with the soothing sounds of flowing water. A big thank you to Mumcy, the spa manager, and Nothando for their expertise and professionalism.

Comfort and Convenience:

The king-size bed in the tent ensured a spacious and comfortable sleep. The linen was soft and impeccably clean. The tent is equipped with both air conditioning and a fan, catering to guests' preferences regardless of the season. Additionally, a small fridge allows you to keep drinks cool.

Relaxing Evenings:

After dinner, guests can unwind at the bar area, featuring a boma, or return to their tent. In our case, a complimentary homemade Amarula drink awaited us, a delightful nightcap before bed.

Exploring the Surroundings:

Located just 20 minutes from Kruger Park, guests can choose between self-driven safaris or guided tours with experienced rangers arranged by the lodge.

Upon our arrival, we met Sean, who has been with Summerfields for several years. He took us on a short farm tour, walking us through the litchi and macadamia trees. He shared interesting insights into the history of the farm and the local culture's use of the surrounding vegetation. The tour concluded with a refreshing treat – delicious macadamia ice cream.

For active individuals, a 5km running trail through the farm amidst the litchi and macadamia trees, overlooking the Sabi River, offers a scenic workout option.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Summerfields and highly recommend it to anyone seeking a unique and luxurious escape in a stunning natural setting.

We booked the forest suite which looks incredibly nice on photos. For me a 10/10 visually. Once we arrived, we learned that the complex is close to a river and the air very moist - which leads to the forest suite having an incredibly moldy smell and visual signs of mold inside. Very bad experience, do not recommend!

A beautiful, tranquil setting. The rooms are extremely private and beautifully decorated with quality furniture, linen, facilities and toiletries. The staff are exceptional and go out of their way to take care of all your needs. The spa is a "must". We will definitely be back soon.

NOT 5-STAR AT ALL!! SO DISAPPOINTING...

I am writing to express my deep disappointment and dissatisfaction following our recent stay at Summerfields. As a frequent visitor since 2014, our fourth visit has regrettably left a lasting negative impression.

Room Conditions:

The bed linen was not only dated but also uncomfortable, making it difficult to enjoy a good night's sleep.
The presence of spiders and broken lampshades in the room significantly detracted from the overall experience.
The towels and bathrobe showed signs of wear and tear, with noticeable holes in both.

Facility Issues:

The Wi-Fi service was sporadic, hindering our ability to stay connected during our stay.
The bath's prolonged warm-up time, exceeding an hour, was inconvenient and disrupted our daily schedule.
A reported broken tap was not addressed during our stay, indicating a lack of prompt maintenance.

Hygiene and Amenities:

The complimentary toiletries were diluted, reflecting a disregard for quality in the provided amenities.
The presence of an old damp smell in the room, coupled with damp linen, raised serious concerns about cleanliness and upkeep.

Dining Experience:

Despite repeated requests regarding my wife's pork allergy, the breakfast staff consistently overlooked this crucial detail, compromising her safety.
The restaurant's hygiene was questionable, with flies present in the morning and frequent errors in our breakfast orders.
Our dinner experience was marred by an uninformed waitress and an overpriced, subpar rump steak.

Spa Experience:

Communication breakdowns occurred at the spa, as the therapist failed to adhere to specific requests related to my pregnant wife's massage, requiring multiple reminders.

Management Involvement:

The lack of any management presence during our stay was conspicuous and contributed to an overall sense of neglect.

Despite the picturesque setting along the Sabie River, these issues have collectively led us to the decision that this will be our last visit to Summerfields. The establishment's overrated status, coupled with the exorbitant prices, fails to justify the substandard service and facilities encountered.

It is my hope that this comprehensive feedback prompts a thorough examination of the areas highlighted, fostering improvements for future guests.
