Summerfields Rose Retreat & Spa

Summerfields is a little piece of paradise in the Lowveld region of South Africa, close to the famous Kruger National Park and the beautiful Blyde River canyon.

Set within a 100-hectare farm, Summerfields has riverside rooms with outdoor showers. The pool, open-air spa area and restaurant are by Sabie River, where hippos bathe at dusk.

With wooden furniture and luxury linen, each room has a private deck and bath overlooking the forest. The villa has natural stone features and a covered terrace.

The spa offers treatments including massages, aromatherapy and rose-based beauty therapies. A lounge with library and Wi-Fi faces the river, while another has satellite TV. Activities include guided tours among the roses and macadamia trees.

The 2 restaurants provide breakfast, lunch and dinner and the menu is reviewed weekly. A candle-lit dinner is possible at the riverside restaurant. Barbecue facilities are also available.

Nearby are a tree-top walkway and mountain biking and hiking trails. Kruger National Park is 11.2 miles away and Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport is 31.1 miles.
