Valley Lodge & Spa in Magaliesburg, South Africa is a multi award-winning four-star country hotel surrounded by a nature reserve, interlaced by a pristine river and streams, which provide a home to indigenous vegetation and prolific bird life.
Scenically situated on the banks of the Magalies River and just an hour from the cities of Gauteng, Pretoria and Johannesburg, Valley Lodge offers superior accommodation in a majestic, indigenous garden setting. It is an ideal country escape from the city life to reconnect with nature or enjoy a romantic weekend. Its location near the city makes our lodge the perfect choice for conferences, special events, and business meetings.
The established retreat’s elegant, well-appointed rooms are complemented by delicious cuisine and warm hospitality. An added advantage for visitors is our hotel’s proximity to major attractions in the historic region of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site and the world-renowned Sterkfontein Caves.
The hotel received four Platinum (Accommodation, Dinning, Conferencing & Spa) and one Gold Award (Spa Best Experience), as well as a Floating Trophy for Best Accommodation in the 8th West Rand Tourism Awards for 2015. In 2016 the West Rand placed Valley Lodge on their ‘Wall of Fame’ for the four Platinum awards. Wayne Walkinshaw, our Executive Chef, has been accepted into the prestigious international gastronomic society, La Chaine des Rotisseurs, Johannesburg Chapter. Valley Lodge’s Food & Beverage team, headed by Donald Clark, has been privileged to receive Platinum status in the 2016 Diners Club International Wine List Awards.
