Dining at Summerfields is a gastronomic experience. They pride themselves on their attention to detail, from the carefully prepared menus to the table settings. They carry the romance of Summerfields through to the River Café and the Summerfields Kitchen and you can be assured of fresh roses and flowers. All vegetables are taken fresh from their own organic nursery, where everything is grown as close to its natural, original form as possible.

The River Café, a bistro type restaurant on the river, is open daily for breakfast and lunch. The Summerfields Kitchen, above their organic garden, is open from Tuesday to Saturday for dinner.  Menus change according to the season and what is available from the organic nursery and the Summerfields Farm.

Go above and beyond the normal and take your imagination to a place where nature’s unspoilt beauty and peace allows you to totally relax your body and mind thus refreshing your soul and strengthening your inner being.

Their spa is surrounded by bush-clad mountains on the banks of the Sabie River which affords glimpses of crocodiles and an abundance of hippos.  The birdlife is prolific with over 100 species already identified on the estate.  The Lowveld enjoys a sub-tropical climate giving rise to a delightful variety of fruits such as litchis, mango’s, avocado, pawpaw to name a few.

Facilities include a steam room, jacuzzi,  swimming pool, vichy shower, unisex change rooms and hydro walk along the banks of the Sabie giving meaning to the philosophy “Sanare per Aquam” which means ‘health through water’. Their guests choose a spa experience because it is pleasurable and fun, it transports them from the grind of everyday life.  It elevates focus on physical appearance only to a level where caring about one’s state of mind, emotional well-being and stress reduction become important.
