A romantic and elegant hide-away awaits you in the lush surroundings of Mpumalanga. Well known for its attentive service, beautifully appointed rooms and superb cuisine, Blue Mountain Lodge is luxurious and peaceful. There are no time restraints on guests - breakfast is served until noon and dinner until midnight. Relaxation and tranquillity is the Lodge's raison d'être and the caring, efficient staff ensure that these qualities are what the guests receive.
Blue Mountain Lodge is idyllically positioned between the still waters of the lake and the indigenous trees of the Blue Mountain Estate. The accommodation is in ochre-washed cottages, known as manor houses. The grounds are beautifully kept and are perfect for gentle walks and idle contemplation.
The rooms are elegantly luxurious, a style which is achieved by grand historical references and world class quality - the French-style fireplaces in the sitting and dining area are particularly magnificent - and period style tastefully harmonises with real antiques. Bedrooms are havens of tranquillity, and the hand embroidered pure cotton bedclothes should ensure the sweetest of dreams. The bathrooms have separate tub and shower.
Although guests often choose to lounge dreamily by the pool there are many other activities. A nearby dam is fully stocked with black bass for the keen fisherman, the bird watching is excellent, five golf courses are within twenty minutes drive and some wonderful excursions may be taken, including game drives in the nearby Kruger and some rather exciting trips by helicopter. The modern cuisine, which emphasises really excellent fresh ingredients and contrasts in textures and tastes, is so good that many guests find that they prefer an active day so that they may rationalise their over-indulgence at the dinner table later!
