 Re-Opening of Forest Lodge after fire

Following a fire that damaged the main lodge area of Forest Lodge at the end of August, forcing the closure of the lodge while re-construction takes place, we are happy to say that work is well underway to meet the opening deadline of the 20th December. Using the opportunity to ensure that Forest Lodge gets a fresh new look, various areas in the main lodge have been re-designed.

Wormy Chestnut floors have been used throughout the lodge giving it a much lighter feel. James Mudge tables adorn the restaurant and we eagerly await the arrival of the award-winning Artisan chairs from Europe to complement them. A newly- fashioned bistro area leading onto the pool deck and a renewed pool with a glass front overlooking the magnificent vista of Walker Bay all work to update the lodge feel.  

Not missing the opportunity, extensive work is being done in the lodge suites too. The bathrooms receives a full make-over with new luxurious bathtubs and crisp new vanities. The flooring throughout the lounge and bedrooms have been updated and new large-paned aluminium sliding doors have been installed in all rooms. New 50 inch Smart TV’s complement the re-designed fireplace area in each lounge and a refreshed minibar area awaits to entice each guests on entering the room. 

We look forward to sharing some pictures of the new lodge once it’s complete. Watch this space…
