Overview of Silver Forest Boutique Lodge & Spa

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. Less than an hour from Cape Town, Silver Forest exudes the kind of serenity that warms the soul.
