Elephant Hide of Knysna Guest Lodge

Elephant Hide of Knysna Guest Lodge

I love, love … loved this place !!!  
I featured the main lodge a few days ago, but now for the next/best part … our suite!!!  There are 6 suites and 1 family suite overlooking the Knysna Lagoon  – this was ours …. 

Pity the weather wasn’t wonderful … lovely blue skies would have been far nicer in photos … never mind … grey and cloudy will have to do …

I sat on the little patio on the evening I was alone (hubby had gone to Hermanus to be with his Mum for the last time before she passed away) – it was quiet and peaceful …. I sipped a good red wine and ate delicious cheeses with biscuits and bread (which I had bought at the Fruit and Veggie shop in town)

On either side of our suite are the others nestled in the natural bush all with magnificent views …

Take a peek at the bathroom !!!  

The whole region was in the grips of a drought and there was a notice the door asking guests to please use the showers rather than the bath.  Seemed such a pity – but as it rained for nearly 36 hours while we were there, I figured they could spare just one bath – I half filled it with lovely warm scented bubble bath, lit the candles and relaxed !!!  Heaven!!

This is the view from the shower … stunning …. but not half as relaxing as the bath !!! 

On the monogramed light and fluffy duvet was a neatly rolled letter, welcoming us to the Lodge and congratulating us on our recent marriage!  We had a laugh afterwards with Wendy when we told her that we hadn’t recently been married, but in fact have been married for nearly 40 years!!!!   Someone must have got their wires crossed 🙂  !!!!!!

Anyway .. it was a lovely gesture and we appreciated it very much – makes one feel very special !!! 

This little Ellie sits on the counter hidden behind the extra large wooden headboard where there is a good selection of teas, coffees, scrumptiously fresh rusks and an honesty bar ..

The Voucher lived up to it’s expectations .. it’s a place to unwind and relax and take in all the beauty around you!!!    … and we will be back for more … one day !!!!
