About Summerfields Rose Retreat and Spa

Welcome to Summerfields Rose Retreat and Spa situated on one of the oldest farms in the Hazyview/Sabie Valley. Established by Andre van Heerden and Ilse Fritz on the old hunting farm of former Prime Minister, Jan Smuts, the lodge has now been transformed into a self-contained guest house known as the Stonehouse, with expanding views over the valley.

We offer a luxury 5 Star tented lodge, unique rose spa and a gourmet restaurant serving breakfast daily, nestled in a natural forest and plantations of lychees, macadamia nuts and roses. Rooms are defined by the bygone romance of percale linen and roses in luxurious suites on the banks of the Sabie River.

The rose tunnels were established in 2003 for the cultivation of a unique variety of roses, and the following year the original mango orchards were replaced by macadamia trees, which are now in production. Our gourmet restaurant, Summerfields Kitchen, was officially opened on 15 December 2006 and the River Lodge and Spa followed in April 2007.

We wish you a memorable stay with us and hope to be welcoming you back in the near future. If at any point during your visit you have any queries or special requirements, please feel free to let us know.

                          The absolute tranquility of our living quarters and scrumptious meals in beautiful surroundings will remain some of our fondest memories of Summerfields. We regret not having been informed of dinner being available on Sunday timeously, as we had a late lunch as was suggested in our welcome letter..seeing that we really enjoyed the dinners. Just 2 suggestions: a trolley to transport luggage from and to the parking lot, as our suitcase wheels were destroyed on rough surface. Fresh roses in our room would have been appreciated..ours were wilted and rusty. Special mention needs to be made of frie...

                          Website material does not do it justice, have lived in Lowveld for over 20 years and there are few similar lodges not yet visited, this one is unique in more ways than one, its the ultimate 5 star rustic ambient with real true dedication to rustic factor. Brill combination of farmer make do with and decorator/architect adventuring out the box with sprinkle of coolever engineering. (This coming from someone in construction, the wooden dowels tops over the nail heads on the SA Pine slats in the tented units deserve 11/10). The spa ladies scored the highest ranking of any of a dozen spas...

                          Loved the very private tented rooms with soaking tub overlooking the Sabie River. Great attention to detail. Beautiful quality linens, robes and loved the abundant bowls of fresh roses. The spa treatments were perfect and restaurant excellent. Enjoyed walking the 5km run park trail.
