Weddings & Events

Say “I do!” in one of the world’s most beautiful places. Lakeside Lodge and Spa is a small luxury hotel set on the banks of the Swartvlei Lagoon outside Sedgefield. It is surrounded by the virgin forests and lagoons of the Wilderness National Park. A place that is at once grand and unspoilt.

The hotel is more than a gorgeous backdrop for wedding photographs. It was originally a farmstead and has retained the friendliness one associates with the countryside, but here the similarities end. The interior has been opened up into a series of light-filled spaces and furnished with contemporary classics and original artworks. It has its own adjoining spa and a fine restaurant.
