Reviewed 29 June 2014

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary weekend and were very spoilt. The service is really excellent and the treatments were enjoyable. The hosts went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. The reason for the markdown is the location- roads were bad and we damaged a tire on the way home. Also, we stayed here in winter and the rooms can get a bit chilly, despite the fireplace. Otherwise, a stunning Lodge and one that I am recommending to friends!

Dear Taimeia,

Thank you for your review and lovely words. We strive to give the best service we can and it is very rewording when our guests have enjoyed that.
I am so sorry to hear about your tire. We struggle to get the authorities to maintain the roads and have been promised they will come to scrape it again. Lets hope!
We hope to see you back some time soon.

warmest regards

Had a fantastic stay! 5 star luxury and the spa treatments in the bush were amazing! The chalet provides a lot of privacy and is well equipped for a self catering stay! Would definitely go back for a romantic weekend away.

The accommodation was beautiful, staff friendly and professional and the messages unbelievable. We had a delicious dinner of Kudu fillet and poached salmon - Yum! Couldn't ask for a better place to relax. Thanx Carmen and Louwie for the amazing time and food!

Abloom Spa and Lodge is the perfect getaway for a private, romantic, indulgent treat.

The drive was easy: great directions and it is situated an easy hour and a half or so from Johannesburg.

We were blown away by the exquisite attention to detail of the accommodation, the food, the spa treatments and the overall service. From the pink champagne chilling in the fridge on our arrival, to the welcome cocktail, to the carefully prepared fresh meals, to the indulgent layout of the cottage, the hot plunge pool, the blissful treatments .... it was all perfect. Even the 'happy birthday' written out in flowers on the bed for our arrival.

My husband and I could not have imagined a more magical breakaway weekend.

It's not common to visit a lodge and stay in your room from arrival until departure ... With a large villa, in room spa treatments, a private plunge pool (heated) and delicious food brought to your units dining table - Abloom will have you tucked away for the duration of your stay. My wife & I loved our stay and the unique spaces that Carmen & Lowie have created ... You'll want to take the daybed / sofa's home when you leave. P.S Lowie is an amazing chef and you'll be hard pressed to find a better dining experience in SA

By the time I had driven several kilometres down the sandy road to Abloom, my every instinct was telling me that this was going to be a trial and a tribulation.
How wrong one's instincts can be.
From the first warm smile to the last, friendly wave, Abloom lived up to its reputation as Cullinan's gem.
OK. I'm spoilt. Done many spas and many massages...Kelebigile Montsho is up there with anyone, internationally, when it comes to meaningful, indulgent treatments. Massages are done on your own private deck, next to a sparkling plunge pool.
The atmosphere is calm, silent, intensely relaxing.
The food? Lowis' passion for all things culinary shows in every small, delectable detail.
Don't hesitate. Get to Abloom for some me-time, a marriage pick-me-upper, or a wickedly well hidden escape with your lover. You won't want to be found and nobody will find you.
Bliss.

We spent our anniversary at Abloom from the Friday to the Monday.
From the moment of arrival we felt special, had the most enjoyable spa treatments ever in the privacy of our cottage and out on the deck. Meals were just inimitable, we have not enjoyed such quality food ever on a lodge weekend away.
The privacy we enjoyed was probably the most noticeable thing about Abloom, there simply is no interference at all.
We will be back without a doubt.
