Overview

Perched on a dramatic hill top with wraparound views of the spectacular Ubombo mountain range, and the surrounding Zululand bush, &Beyond Phinda Mountain Lodge is a dramatic safari destination. Boasting 16 suites, three family cottages and the exclusive family suite, they all offer breathtaking raptor’s-eye views of the reserve below.  Roomy luxurious suites boast natural light through expansive glass windows, elegant ensuite bathrooms inspired by Zulu basketware designs, a beautifully appointed personal bar, private sitting area, sunken lounge and a spacious veranda with a plunge pool and outdoor shower.  Intimate sitting areas brim with sunlight, and open decks make the most of the magnificent views. A spacious bar area links the pool, spa and gym that features state-of-the-art equipment, and a yoga deck with a view. Delicious meals are served in the dining area that features an interactive kitchen and pizza oven, and under a star-studded sky in the traditional stone and reed Boma, theatrically illuminated by dozens of candles and lanterns. The rim flow pool follows the contours of the hill, with magnificent views of the Lebombo foothills, and the Safari shop showcases the best of regional basket and beadwork.
