Growing 100+ edible plants
With our latest additions to the garden we are growing 102 varieties of food at the lodge and reached another milestone.
1 year anniversary
We are growing food at the lodge now for an entire year and what once seemed impossible is taking shape!
Growing as much food as possible
We are increasing plant density
Covid19 and LockdownSA
The pandemic will change the world forever. Hopefully towards a more sustainable future. We continued with our path and took care of the food forest during #lockdownSA.

Beautiful Garden Route Lodge
A magical stay
A must, if you are visiting Plett. The view takes ones breath away, the Edible Food Forest is a must see, and their dedication to guest health is commendable. The rooms are super luxurious and brilliantly clean. The staff went out of their way to ensure all our needs were met. The staff are well trained and very friendly, their food were sumptuous. We highly recommend La Vista as a memorable vacation stay, we will most definitely return, hopefully for a much longer stay. Thank you La Vista!
We definitely recommend
views are fantastic and the staff went above and beyond to ensure that we felt at home and had everything we needed. The breakfast was delicious and management was attentive. Would definitely recommend La Vista lodge to anyone looking for a Plett getaway.
We had a fantastic stay at La Vista lodge. The service was impeccable. The room was spacious and clean and breakfast was delicious. The lodge had a beautiful view of the ocean and lagoon. We would definitely recommend staying at La Vista when coming to Plett.
The view blue me away
Excellent room - truly. I have not experienced better accommodation for price in South Africa in fact! It was spacious, the bed was comfortable and large enough to please the fussiest of sleepers, but none of that compares with the view of the Plettenberg Bay lagoon and Indian Ocean that totally blew me away. Our balcony also directly accessed the pool so an early morning swim overlooking the stunning bay was a few steps away. Literally paradise at your fingertips. The service was personalised and friendly too. The staff are patient and attended our every (reasonable:) need. Highly recommended!
Teamwork at la Food Forest
We love gardening.
