About Blue Mountain Lodge
Blue Mountain Lodge is an experience of Luxury, Nature and Fantasy carefully blended into one. Set on 200 hectares of indigenous bush, forestry and farmland, the ochre-washed Lodge with its deep-set pillared verandas and whirring white fans, is an “Out of Africa” story come true. Great care has been taken to create unique inspiring accommodation, embracing a standard comparable with some of the top hotels world-wide. Every effort is made to match the beauty of the surrounding with friendly and efficient service.
The Manor House
For ultimate privacy surrounded by verdant forests the Manor Houses are the recent additions to the lodge. Reflecting the same splendor and luxury that the Blue Mountain Lodge is famous for, each has two suites, a marbled bathroom, a mahogany study, kitchen, lounge and dinning room, including your own personal chef and maitr’d. This elegance continues to the timber deck where one can view a magnificent sunset or admire the beauty of a thousand stars alongside swimming pools that cascade into a stunning forest-lined lake.
The Victorian Suites
Delicately set at the foot of the main building, as a sparkling fountain ushers its guests to havens of relaxation. There are 8 Victorian Suites all housing king-sized, extra length beds except for Suite number 8, which has two three-quater beds. All suites and rooms have been individually decorated. The furniture, except antiques, has been designed by Valma Botha and custom-made for the Blue Mountain Lodge, making our decor unique in South Africa.
The Ballentine Suite
The Ballantine suite or “The Presidential Suite” embraces a classical regency style. This suite uncovers an elegantly furnished spacious lounge and majestic bedroom. A private plunge pool silently glistens over luscious forestry.
