Refreshed suites revealed at Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge

New colour scheme, artisanal fabrics and Chinoiserie-inspired drinks cabinet

Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge has completed a major property-wide renovation with a perfect combination of African luxury and the warmth of home elevating the lodge’s appeal without compromising its original vision of creating a ‘luxury home in the bush’.

Dakota Designs, who also recently revamped the suites at Sabi Sabi’s Earth Lodge, breathed new life into the luxury Bush Lodge suites with a masterful infusion of botanical elements, rich textures and proudly South African custom artworks.

Drawing from the surrounding bush, the new colour scheme is a stunning display of natural hues. A standout element of the design is the artisanal fabrics by South African artist, Sarah Kelly, which feature pops of verdant green and warm ochre tones, expertly adorned with fauna and flora motifs. The refined decor elements add a touch of sophistication to the fresh and earthy colour palette, blending seamlessly with the lush foliage of the environment

An eye-catching feature of the suite is the grand watercolour pieces painted by Sarah Kelly, which flank the bed that faces outward, offering riverbed views in some suites and bush greenery in others.

A beautiful Chinoiserie-inspired drinks cabinet is the centrepiece of the suite, and guests are spoilt for choice with a range of South African craft beverages which can be enjoyed under the large, covered pergola, or sipping a glass of award-winning wine on the newly upholstered daybed decorated in shades borrowed from nature. The built-in daybeds can be converted into single beds and are equipped with an elegant netting to ensure children can rest comfortably.

High timber beams in the suites pay homage to Bush Lodge’s history throughout the past four decades while preserving their presence, and a modern quartz floor has been added for an additional touch of sophistication.

In the bathroom, a newly installed vanity unit boasts two smooth and minimalistic black basins resting on a timber slab and gold hardware accents for a luxurious touch. Behind the basins is an eye-catching black splash back, blending natural elements with up-to-date design features. A custom wood sculpture that reflects in the double mirrors, is inspired by the intriguing networks of termites, portraying a subtle message about family dynamics similar to those of a hidden termite colony.

Comfort was prioritised throughout the design process, with parents able to supervise kids’ bath time from an ottoman and nesting table in the centre of the bathroom. A free-standing bath with a stunning bush outlook creates the perfect spot to soak, while an outdoor shower provides a serene and refreshing experience.

Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge is an ideal destination for couples, families, friends, and colleagues. Younger visitors will also find plenty of fun and stimulation with game drives and an EleFun centre dedicated to children of all ages.

Early morning and late afternoon game drives are unforgettable experiences that allow guests to observe incredible animals, including the Big Five, up close as they listen to their guide and tracker share stories.
