Tsala Treetop Lodge, Near Plettenberg Bay, Garden Route, South Africa
Over the road from an elephant sanctuary and Plettenberg Bay's whale-watching, this treehouse-inspired boutique hotel celebrates Africa with its ethnic, craftsman-inspired décor. It's also super-luxurious: secluded suites and contemporary villas are all air-conditioned with private pools and decks looking out over the trees.
In-suite wellness treatments are available and dining is at the highly acclaimed Tsala or Zinzi Restaurants. There are many activities too: mainly sport and safari-based; and we love the infinity pool, floating over empty space.
