Body, Mind & Soul Retreat at Zonderntwyfel is a must. Spectacular views and clean mountain air. Cleansing and Rejuvenation at its best.

5/5.0

The most beautiful view. Excellent food and very freindly staff. Beds, linen and towels are very clean. Rooms also. The perfect place for a family get away. Wifi was a bit iffy, but I suppose its because we were at the very end of the lodge. Will definitely visit again. Only for those looking to relax and break away from city life.

Great lodge that's peaceful and serene with plenty of trails for the eager hiker or mountain biker. It lives up to its name, a great retreat if you are looking for some quiet time to refuel.

Very quiet and the surroundings are stunning. Unfortunately, there were only old périple when we were there, so it looked like a retirement home… Oh and the cooking is average.
