The Melody Hill Retreat
Melody Hill is a 2-hectare estate set in a secluded and peaceful pecan-nut orchard, on the banks of the Magalies River. This river-side property is situated in a valley that boasts a unique ecosystem teaming with birds and indigenous plant life. The home of Nag-apies, Porcupines, Vervet Monkeys and Hornbills.
Melody Hill offers a peaceful and tranquil setting for mind, body and soul integration. Total harmonious relaxation for the body, mind and spirit. Melody Hill has two main venues, a large villa (Melody Hill Retreat) and a smaller spa cottage (Huna River House). The venues can be booked seperately or used in conjunction. Our grounds and facilities include a studio, swimming pool, labyrinth, river, orchard, dam, vegetable gardens and beautiful buildings, designed and built by us over 20 years, with love and passion.
