For a truly magical experience in the very heart of South Africa’s famed Garden Route lies the Phantom Forest Eco Reserve, a celebration of nature and sensual beauty. Hidden in the lush indigenous forest of Afromontane, the Phantom Forest Eco Reserve offers a once-in-a-lifetime destination for those wishing to experience a uniquely rejuvenating vacation among some of South Africa’s most delightful flora and fauna. Almost fairytale-like in its setup, the reserve comprises six luxurious tree suites, each nestled up high in the forest trees and providing lush views of the seemingly endless greenery down below.
With a soundtrack only of forest sounds, the Phantom Forest Eco Reserve is a rare sanctuary which has sought to provide guests with a destination that is wholly in-tune with its environment. Exquisitely furnished in authentically African textures and colors, the six suites are all named after the indigenous trees one can find in the surrounding forest – such as Monkey Plum and Turkey Berry.
Tree houses with a twist, these luxurious suites boast an incomparably romantic bedroom and lounge, a beautiful bathroom with glass roof, which seeps the double-ended bath in moonlight and a fabulous glass gable allowing wonderful views over the forest.
Guests can also spend their evenings whiling away the hours on their private viewing decks listening to the sounds of the forest below. Romantics will not find a place more dedicated to sensuality as couples can gaze up at the stars from outdoor baths or cuddle up on their indoor daybeds on cooler evenings.
The senses continue to be delighted by the reserve’s culinary offerings, which can be savored at the African boma or the more exotic Chutzpah, which offers a delectable Moroccan-inspired experience. Dinner at the boma is a delicious fusion of international flavors prepared in a classically African style.
Guests are encouraged to take their time and spend the evening on the fire deck under the balmy skies enjoying an after dinner coffee or liqueur.
