When the Trogon House & Forest Spa first opened its doors in 2006 it caused a furore in the South African tourism industry. For the first time ever, a hotel decided to lodge no more than two to eight guests at a time, thus adding new meaning to the term private hotel.
The Trogon House & Forest Spa is the first hotel to answer to the modern and demanding individual’s frequent demand for unhindered privacy. It has been created for the exclusive use as a private hideaway for no more than two to

eight guests at a time – a personal residence to share with just the people closest to you but with all the service and luxury of a first-class hotel.
The Trogon House is nestled into the native forest halfway between Keurbooms River and Natures Valley. The magnificent coastline along this stretch ranks among the most enchanting and pristine areas of the Garden Route.
The journey to the Trogon House in itself is an experience: The road winds its way past an elephant, bird and monkey sanctuary before reaching the one and a half kilometre long private path though lush vegetation and soaring canopies above.
Ending at a clearing, the path opens up on a sunlit pool deck high above the treetops and commanding spectacular views of the forest’s vast expanse all around.
The forest itself is the backbone of the construction. Resting on the massive trunks, the lodge spins a web of glass walls, open ceilings and wooden decks among the trees. The ingenious construction lets you intimately experience the forest and nature without sacrificing your cherished comfort.
Having been inspired by his extensive travels to exotic countries and cultures, the private owner and director of the hotel has personally created the concept and design of the stunning Trogon House.
The lovingly decorated interior is proof to the exquisite taste and attention to detail which shaped this serene retreat. Every piece was handpicked and the many treasure include finest Egyptian linen, silk and crystal combined with exotic antiques and precious African artefacts.
The main building houses a spacious reception and two luxurious bedrooms and is connected to the secluded forest suites via elevated boardwalks permitting insight into the life near the canopies. A second connection leads to the secluded forest spa for your private use only.
It is the intimate privacy to be enjoyed among the wonders of nature that make the Trogon House & Forest Spa a truly unique experience. A place to rediscover yourself and live in harmony with nature, it nevertheless offers every conceivable comfort and luxury.
The Trogon House should be considered as an uncommon and exciting alternative to the region’s five star hotels by any distinguished traveller.
Presenting elite lodgings beyond doubt, the Trogon House needs not necessarily be more expensive than other accommodation for groups of four to eight people. See it for yourself while it is still an insider’ tip!
