There is something quite personal at Huka that one doesn't usually get even at superior hotels. Greetings by the Assistant Manager (and not only on the first day), attention to one's needs, the pre-dinner cockail hour, the dinners in various locales through the main building and in the gardens (very intimate--each area has a fire place and individualized service) and thre amazingly beautiful, spacious rooms that feel totally individualized and that look out on lush flora all make for a superior vacation spot. Even the local ducks who waddle up from the river make one feel as though this is a kind of paradise on earth. If we have one objection it is that after dinner drinks are put on he bill, which seems petty when before dinner drinks are gratis. Oh well, nothing is completely perfect, and Huka comes very close. This was our second visit and we were given a bottle of wine from the owner's winery in South Africa as a welcome. Very thoughtful, and certainly all the amenities and service were greatly appreciated.
