About the Lodge

They say that people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones and that is certainly true at &Beyond Phinda Forest Lodge.

Our designers have created a calming atmosphere of Zulu Zen. And there’s no need to worry about the privacy of your retreat – in spite of the floor to ceiling glass walls, the towering torchwood trees and fertile forest floor that surround your suite ensure a sense of seclusion.

Lodge Amenities

  • Set in rare and beautiful sand forest, the glass walls of &Beyond Phinda Forest Lodge offer a sweeping view of one of the most unique ecosystems on the planet. &Beyond Phinda Forest Lodge is one of the world’s first eco-designed luxury lodges. Floor to ceiling windows invite the forest in but the dense canopy provides privacy.The dainty forms of dwarf forest antelope dart among and below the suites, raised on stilts to float between the sandy forest floor and the leafy canopy above. Waking up to rustling forest sounds and bird song, surrounded by delicate leaf-filtered light, a pervading sense of peace and calm will set the tone for your entire day.”
