Silver Forest is tucked away in the scenic mountains of Somerset West. The beautiful greenery hides the hustle of the city and provides a peaceful and tranquil stay. Fudge, the cute Jack Russell, instantly became my new friend and gives the lodge an extra homely feel.
We were welcomed by the friendly Yolandi and Collin, who were readily available to attend to any questions or needs. A special mention to Ryan, such a sweet gentleman who is always ready to help.
The spa is absolutely luxurious. We had the most amazing treatments and enjoyed the Jacuzzi, sauna and rasul immensely.
We were treated to a delicious 3-course dinner on the second night, paired with Morgenster and Ken Forrester wine. The breakfast every morning consists of a continental buffet and choice of hot meal. The fruit and yoghurt in the little jars were my favourite!
The rooms are something else – the attention to detail is an experience in itself. From the Nespresso machine to the fireplace and the most comfortable bed and bedding, we were so well-rested after our stay. What better way to say good night than with a Lindt chocolate and shot of Amarula?
Silver Forest is the perfect getaway, whether you want to stay indoors or take a drive for the day. We visited Morgenster and Idiom for wine tasting and had lunch at Henri’s, all very close to the lodge. If the weather had been more permitting, we could definitely have lounged by the outside pool the whole day!
Hennie and I had the most amazing weekend and will definitely visit Silver Forest again… and very soon 🙂
