view web site ›'s insider take:

"Eco" and "Reserve" fail to fully capture the richness of the experience at Phantom Forest, a hilltop resort that peeks through the trees to the Knysna River below. The 14 rooms are split between cozy wood-and-glass chalets and newer Moroccan-themed tree suites reached by winding wooden walkways, from which you can also access trails for a hike into the game-filled property. The hotel was constructed with renewable materials like bamboo and thatch in order to reduce its environmental impact. But Phantom doesn't skimp on comfort, with the best African cottons, plump beds, and sumptuous meals often made with organic ingredients. All rooms have massive glass-front baths with sunken tubs overlooking the forest. The vibe is romantic, with intimate treatments at the Body Boma spa, a private hot tub for two in between the trees, a Moroccan restaurant amusingly called Chutzpah and lit by candelight and lanterns, and a nightly fire perfect for post-dinner cuddling.
