“We really enjoyed our stay at Summerfields. The location is stunning and we loved our beautifully furnished tent which overlooked the gushing Sabie river. The grounds are lovely and definitely worth a walk around. We had an early morning massage over the river which was excellent and amazing value for money.” – Resort TripAdvisor.
“We had a lovely weekend at the retreat. The staff was welcoming and accommodating of our early game drive plans (the breakfast they packed for us was delicious!!). The food was great as was the wine we got overlooking the beautiful river. The tents were great and felt very luxurious. As a retreat/spa we loved it, just was a little farther from Kruger than we thought. Wish we could have stayed longer!” – Michelle TripAdvisor.
“We had breakfast at the River Cafe and was treated on their beautiful food. After this we enjoyed different spa treatments and loved the unique setting at the Sabie River. No oriental music come close to this calming effect of the rushing waters. The therapists were well qualified and very professional. The whole experience was out of this world!” – Karne TripAdvisor.
