This romantic lodge is the stuff of adventure-honeymoon daydreams

There are luxury lodges, then there's this newly rebuilt luxury lodge. Situated in South Africa' KwaZulu-Natal Province, &Beyond Phinda Homestead has reopened to the public following extensive renovations. The sole-use safari villa at &Beyond Phinda Game Reserve, this glamorous hideaway is the stuff of adventure-honeymoon daydreams.

&Beyond Phinda Homestead has reopened following renovations

Tucked into forest, &Beyond Phinda Homestead has been redesigned to perfectly blend into its spectacular setting.

Looking out over an open clearing, the lodge blurs the lines between guests and the bushland with large open spaces, expansive walls of glass, sun decks and a pool that seems to disappear into the landscape. 

The lodge's new design features touches inspired by the local culture

Inside, the luxe escape features touches inspired by the local culture. Taking design cues from the natural surroundings and the Zulu culture, the interiors are furnished in clean lines and earthy tones, with highlights of burnt clay, aloe and red.

Adding to the beauty of it all, adornments like traditional Nguni hides, intricate basketwork and one-of-a-kind Zulu reed tassel curtains have been sourced directly from local communities. Altogether, it creates a home-away-from-home that's incredibly inviting.

Enjoy romantic dining on the verandah

Romantic dining is a must-do at &Beyond Phinda Homestead, with an array of options available for guests. Enjoy breakfast or cocktails on the veranda or treat yourselves to mouthwatering cuisine prepared by the lodge's private chef in the interactive kitchen.

Also perfect for indulging the senses, a tranquil massage area is the place to be after an exhilarating day out on safari. 

Indulge the senses with a rejuvenating massage
