Summerfields Rose Retreat and Spa


Dear Visitor

Welcome to our new Summerfields website.  We hope that you’ll enjoy browsing through the site and that you will be able to come and visit us to learn a little about our philosophy and the passion which drives our stewardship of this little paradise.

Summerfields Rose Retreat & Spa is a place of tranquillity, a place to relax and shake off the city blues, the ideal place for a romantic getaway.  Accommodation is in 5-star luxury tented suites on the Sabie river under a canopy of Jackalberry and Tambotie trees.

Summerfields is set in a 100 acre macadamia, granadilla and litchi farm, a few kilometres west of Hazyview, and a mere 12 kms from the Phabeni gate to the famous Kruger National Park. It is also within a short driving distance from the Panorama Route, with majestic views from God’s Window in Graskop, to the Blyde River Canyon and the Three Rondavels. Ilse grows the Summerfields cut roses and the organic vegetables, which make their way to your plateevery day.

Our roses are a constant theme at Summerfields. We place fresh roses in every room and public areas every day, we use it in the spa, on our tables and even in the food. Of course, you’re welcome to take some home with you!

We offer five-star hospitality in a country environment.  Our slogan ‘barefoot luxury’ means that you can kick off your shoes, and your worries, and let us take care of you in the glorious African bush.

The romance of Summerfields is augmented by the Rose Spa, which offers a wide range of beauty and relaxation treatments, and the River Café, where our professionally trained chef and daughter Natia and her talented team creates wonderful meals made from food grown organically on the farm.

We spare no effort in making every event a special occasion, with those uniquely Summerfields touches.

Summerfields is situated just outside Hazyview, Mpumalanga and just 10 kilometers from the Phabeni gate to the famous Kruger National Park and is within a short driving distance to Sabie, Graskop, White River and many of the Lowveld’s beauty spots.

Come and stay at Summerfields – let us do the worrying while you re-ignite your senses, refresh your mind and uplift your soul
