Feefo logo


Nestled in a lush forest setting on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain, Silver Forest Boutique Lodge & Spa is located a mere 10 minutes’ drive from the start of the renowned Stellenbosch wine route. This hidden gem on the doorstep of the Cape Winelands provides discerning guests with a tranquil and luxurious haven – a great place to stop on a journey outside Cape Town.

Silver Forest has luxuriously equipped contemporary suites, offering superior comfort and opulence. The world-class spa and treatment centre forms the serene core of this lodge. You can unwind in the soothing tranquillity colour therapy room, or indulge in the exceptional Thermal Suite, which is warming combination of a steam room, sauna, a Rasul mud treatment, a hot tub and a hydro-jet massage pool.

This boutique lodge serves delicious breakfasts, light lunches, dinners and popular afternoon high teas. Relax by the outdoor pool, sipping on sparkling wine or a cup of local rooibos (‘red bush’) tea while being enchanted by cheerful Cape sugarbirds as they manoeuvre among the leaves of the garden’s Cape honeysuckles.

Silver Forest Boutique Lodge & Spa is situated in a fantastic location from which to enjoy activities like wine tasting in the Cape Winelands, seasonal whale watching in Hermanus, or even a round of golf at the world-class courses in the area.

Garden Cottage

The cosy Garden Cottages offer guests a more spacious and self-catering option at Silver Forest – with separate open-plan lounges, dining areas and small kitchens. Equipped with ovens and hobs, these cottages are perfect if you want the option of cooking your own meals, which can be enjoyed on your private patio in a peaceful garden setting.

Luxury Garden Suite

Step inside one of seven Luxury Garden Suites, tastefully decorated with modern furniture and zen-like forest wallpaper. Curl up in comforting percale linen on your extra-long king-sized bed while the fireplace warms up a winter night. Air conditioning will cool the warm Cape Town summer nights while you catch up on your Netflix favourites on the flat-screen Smart TV. The ultra-modern bathrooms are en suite with freestanding bath tubs and separate walk-in showers.

All the suites at Silver Forest are equipped with mod cons like Nespresso coffee machines, fridge and freezer units, laptop safes and USB charging stations.
