The Phantom Forest is a childhood dream rediscovered: hidden in the Knysna Forest hugging the coast, this charming resort has been constructed in and partly atop the dense forest.
The discerning guests are accommodated in comfortable “tree suites” among the soaring canopy of the pristine forest. It is a truly memorable experience.
The journey to the Phantom Forest in itself is an adventure: having left your vehicle at the mountains’ foothills, a ranger will pick you up with a 4x4 and

take you to the lodge.
The path winds uphill through the lush Knysna Forest before it ends at the spectacular Phantom Forest, second to none.
Above all, it is the mystic atmosphere, the exotic sounds and smells, the light filtering through the leaves, that lend the lodge its unique characteristic. Words can not justly express the sensation of dining at the restaurant with its booma and fireplace among the trees or being accommodated in the luxurious treetop suites – it has to be experienced.
A special highlight is the Body Boma – a wellness and spa centre having been constructed entirely among the trees. With body and soul in contact with nature, various wellness treatments at the Tree-Spa-Suites will ease the strains of everyday life.
Especially recommendable are the massages with scented oil made from natural and regional African ingredients only. All therapies and beauty products follow the principle “back to nature”.
A different kind of Jacuzzi, but matching the Phantom Forest rustic style perfectly, is the outdoor Bubble-Barrel. Board the barrel and breathe the aromatic forest air surrounding you. A charming sauna completes the range of nature-wellness facilities. Without question – the Phantom Forest’s concept stands out!
It has to be mentioned that on days with heavy traffic some noise from the N2 might be faintly heard at the hotel in the mountains. It is the tiniest downside compared to the amazing experience the Phantom Forest offers.
