A symphony of stone, wood, glass and water high above the floor of the magnificent indigenous forests of the Garden Route, between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay. Eastern and European flavors blend with the cultures of Africa to reflect in the tastes, rhythms and colours of the hand crafted fittings and superb cuisine. Elevated wooden walkways meander through the trees to ten exclusive and very private suites and six villas, suitable for four guests, each with its own private deck and infinity pool. These seductive structures rise to heights exceeding six meters, each one a harmonious combination of the craftsmanship of ancient times and the indulgent luxury of every modern convenience. Discover the romance and magic of Coastal Africa.

Tsala is, in every sense, a magical place - breath taking views from everywhere, superb unobtrusive service and dining to match, whether at the renowned Zinzi Restaurant (SA's Top 100), the Tsala dining room or in the intimacy of your suite.
