Nestled on 100ha estate snuggled into a secluded valley near Hazyview in Mpumalanga province 10km from the world famous Kruger National Park, Summerfields Rose Retreat comprises a Lodge, Spa, Restaurant & Deli set on Summerfields Rose Farm, famous for its export quality hybrid tea, roses, litchis and macadamia nuts.
Summerfields Rose Retreat is an exclusive lodge on the river, the ideal place to experience barefoot luxury. The River Lodge consists of 12 luxury tented suites under a canopy of Jackalberry and Tambotie trees, surrounded by the music of nature – the sounds of cascading water, amplified by a choir of bird calls and the occasional snort of a hippo.

Summerfields is truly a unique place and has exceptional produce that you can rarely find in local supermarkets. This is my inspiration; being able to walk through the vegetable tunnel, pulling out veg as you go along brainstorming ideas for the day’s menu. I thoroughly believe in ‘fresh is best’, prepping only for the day and starting fresh the next. Simple food with depth of flavor and intricate plating is what I strive for.
"My passion for food and cooking started when we originally opened Summerfields Kitchen, training as a waitress and watching food being prepared, plated and sent out to hungry patrons.
After graduating from culinary school I worked for three of South Africa’s top chefs; PJ Vadas at The Roundhouse Restaurant, Michael Broughton at Terroir Kleine Zalze, both former Eat Out Top 10 restaurants. And lastly chef Luke Dale-Roberts at The Test Kitchen in Cape Town, currently South Africa’s best restaurant and 61st best in the world according to the San Pellegrino Worlds Best Restaurants.
