andBeyond Phinda Rock Lodge relaunches after refurbishment

andBeyond Phinda Rock Lodge, which sits on andBeyond’s 28,555 hectares private game reserve, is celebrating 20 years since its original opening date with a comprehensive refurbishment.

As the brand’s first ever lodge, this important renovation showcases the company’s standing as the world’s leading luxury experiential travel company.

Structurally both the guest areas and suites have been enhanced with floor-to-ceiling French doors leading on to expansive verandas, which boast dramatic views of the valley.

A brand-new rooftop terrace has been created to provides guests the perfect space to dine under the stars.

Inside, the unique African adobe style at Phinda Rock Lodge has been enhanced with an earthy soft grey palette and the lodge now boasts interiors that are raw and natural but still convey a sense of luxury and elegance.


The lodge’s guest areas have also been redecorated using a combination of woven linen, hand-embroidered cotton and exquisite Persian carpets.

The colour scheme is an elegant combination of oatmeal, grey and stone. All decks have been reconfigured to allow plenty of space for al fresco dining, with stretched canvas shades for protection from the sun.

Bathrooms have been completely refurbished to feature raw timber slabs and handsome granite surfaces.

Keeping to the spirit of Phinda Rock Lodge, the refurbishment has retained the sense of intimacy integral to this small and exclusive lodge.

Glamorous new touches retain a sense of place, deep in the heart of Zululand.

andBeyond Phinda Private Game Reserve encompasses 28,555 hectares of protected wildlife land in KwaZulu-Natal.
