From moment I contacted resort for the first time, the professionalism could be felt and hence my anxiety as I was driving there- in great anticipation. Indeed not disappointed and extremely pleased. From time to time I need a get away from the madding crowds of the city. I have now found a permanent retreat venue to recharge.

Amanda was hands on and made us very comfortable. We felt the warmth of her heart. The ambience of both the rooms and kitchen/dining area was just perfect for a retreat in the bush.

What a pity I planned a 2 day stay. Next time, I will stay longer.

Highly recommended for those who want to escape the bright lights of the city to recharge in a quiet tranquil environment.

Superb. 5 out of 5

An amazing holiday destination with beautiful beaches, very good restaurants and so much to do. Places like Monkeyland, Elephant sanctuary, the world's biggest Avery, Raptor world, Snake park and Wolf sanctuary is so educational and great for family outings.
Truly a wonderful holiday destination.

Gorgeous sea and beach scenery all around. Plenty to see and places to discover.

I'd strongly recommend Zinzi restaurant for anyone who is looking for a night of serinity with fine wine and being schooled at the choice of wine on offer by the enthusiastic patron, Khanyo.
