Scenic views and landscapes are breathtaking. The resort has many outdoor facilities. There is plenty of entertainment for kids. It is a beautiful place to unwind and relax. Our weekend was absolutely amazing. Thanks to Rowen Smith and Fairways.

Heartwood is a very happily and ideally situated cottage that gives you stunning views of the Drakensberg. Beautiful accommodation and lots to occupy the kids. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this trip to any family. Rowan, our host was extremely helpful and facilitated the process quite nicely.

We had such an incredible stay at Fairways Heartwood Mountain Cottage. The accommodation is lovely and there is just something so special about waking up to a view of the mountains. There is so much to do for all ages in Drak Gardens. Rowen was so attentive from my first query to us arriving & then following up after our stay. I'd highly recommend this wonderful cottage!! (My only complaint is that I wish we had stayed longer)

Such a beautiful place, with incredible activities for all ages. Awesome walks/hikes that take you to hidden waterfalls, and incredible views that can’t be competed with.

If you like mountain biking, trail running, golf, hiking or just relaxing with stunning views all around you , this place is for you. We were lucky enough to have snow which was a very special sight to see.

Sani Pass and the beautiful hikes in the area. Close to the Umzimkulu River for rafting and tubing. Horse riding and golf. So much to do.

Small, Quiet, not a lot of people, and the most breath taking scenery in the country.
The Golf Club supplies fantastic meals for really good prices.

Beautiful area. Having snow on the mountains added to the charm immensely but there are certainly so many places to visit and see. Our main purpose of our visit was to do the CHOC Walk up Sani Pass so didnt allow for too much touring time but definitely saw places we would go and visit on a return trip to the Underberg.

Superb. 5 out of 5

Was on a business trip, but have been there many times. Close to Sani Pass and the Drakensberg. Fabulous nature in summer months.
