Summerfields is the ultimate destination for relaxation and tranquility on a pristine working farm beside the Sabie River. Join us, and experience Barefoot Luxury at its finest.

Every effort has been made to ensure that your stay at Summerfields is as worry free and restful as it can be.
The River Lodge comprises 12 luxury tented suites, surrounded by the music of nature – the sounds of cascading water, amplified by a choir of bird calls and the occasional snort of a hippo.
Attention to detail is evident in every rose-variety suite, with specially designed furniture, percale linen and the tantalizing fragrance of fresh cut roses from the farm. All units are air-conditioned with additional roof fans, have double vanities, an outdoor shower and luxury bath, are stocked with quality toiletries and have a private fridge for the comfort of our guests.
Enjoy a relaxing rose-scented bath with optional sparkling wine and homemade treats. Each suite has air-conditioning, roof fan, large bath sheets, bath gowns, tea and coffee making facilities, fridge, hairdryer, electronic safe, a range of quality toiletries and a selection of current magazines.
Breakfast and lunch is reserved for our fully licensed River Café, where there is also a lounge and library area with views over the Sabie River. We have satellite television available in the lounge area as well as Wifi available in the rooms, free of charge. Due to the frequent incidence oft hunderstorms wifi may be interrupted. Dinner is served at The Summerfields Kitchen.
Dining at Summerfields is a gastronomic experience. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail, from the carefully prepared menus to the table settings. We 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 our 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 our 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.
The Spa is located by the river, just a short walk from the Tented Suites and River Café. Visit our unique Rose Spa and experience a total escape from your daily life routines. 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.
Our 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’. Our 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.
Whichever type you choose to be, we have a treatment that is right for you. Visit www.summerfields.co.za

I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
