Andre and Ilse, owners of Summerfields Rose Retreat and Spa had a vision – to create an environment where active farming and warm hospitality can co-exist in a wonderfully unique way. Since 2002 they have been working towards this vision, creating a beautiful lodge, the Tented Suites, and the Spa. Today Summerfields is an enchanting location and is popular with guests passing through on their way to the Kruger Park or needing a romantic weekend.
Perhaps it’s a fusion of African sensibilities with the roses from which Summerfields Rose Retreat & Spa derives its intriguing charm. Or is it the bygone romance underscored by percale linen in a tented lodge suite? If not that then the fact that you may take a treatment in a spa pavilion set beside the river in which hippos bathe at dusk?
Summerfields offers accommodation in luxuriously appointed, tented suites set beneath a canopy of Jackalberry and Tambotie trees, accessible by raised wooden walkways, each very private and enjoying its own space; beautiful gardens, boasting many of the Summerfields roses, and the macadamia and litchi orchards; the Summerfields Spa, where you will find both indulgence and immediate healing in a variety of unique, signature treatments and facilities such as the rose quartz steam shower and excellent dining at The River Café and Summerfields Kitchen, with vegetables from their organic gardens.
