one of the best of the best. we travelled in july (off-season) with our children. We only had two nights at this magical spot-LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!!
my husband and I did the chef's tasting dinner and they did a pizza making class for our 3 children. every detail of this property is perfect. my only regret is we did not have more time. RUN to this property if you can......i dream of when we can get back there.

I was a bit hesitant when my wife booked this hotel, as never heard of it and not sure on location. However I was very impressed in the whole hotel from a very welcoming arrival, service and help to the room. Our room had lots of space, outside hot tub, large bathroom, walk in wardrobe and separate living room. Beds were very comfy to sleep in too... we also used the hotel car to take us to and from
Our restaurant bookings in sandton only 15 min drive away and even used their rolls Royce one day. Definitely would recommend this to you if you want a luxurious hotel and excellent service.

There are moments when trying to describe an experience will still result in an injustice. However, I will try my best to adequately commend this magnificent boutique hotel, staff, and entire organization.

We arrived early morning for a 6 night stay and our driver from hotel was patiently waiting for us to clear customs and retrieve our luggage. Luxury vehicle waiting for transport to hotel along with great conversation from driver offered insight to an imminent special vacation.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by warm and friendly staff members, followed by a seamless (early) check-in, and then whisked away to our Penthouse Suite. The views are breathtaking, outdoor space is plentiful and very comfortable, bed envelops every indentation of your body, and sky light is a 'smooth' touch.

Every room in this hotel offers a different experience (i.e. fireplace in lounge area, an array of beautiful boats in another room, or enjoying live music by in-house pianist...just to name a few). Access to exercise facility, tennis, gift shops, and spa are available. Staff was just incredible - every request we made (big or small) was granted. Breakfast and dinner seemed to get tastier each day and thank you for introducing some new delectable dishes/drinks to our palate.

Unfortunately, housekeeping staff never gets enough credit. We want to personally thank every member of housekeeping for maintaining an immaculate environment our entire stay. Turn down service was always on point and ensured we kept clean towels and plenty of bottled water.

Candice was an absolute delight!!! She has an infectious spirit and warmth that made us feel comfortable throughout entire stay. She helped to organize a few of our excursions along with a number of other requests. Very lucky to have her as part of your team.

Spa treatments on check-out day was a real treat. Our attendants were very warm and gifted at their craft. Best massages we have ever had. And the views from rooftop while getting reflexology done while sipping tea was very soothing.

The Residence gets it right on all levels. They have assembled a great team that has tremendous chemistry and a desire to make sure you enjoy your stay. Can't wait to come back!!!

This was our first hotel on arrival in South Africa and we were very weary after an overnight flight. From the moment we arrived the Residence exceeded all of our expectations. Despite arriving well before check in time we were shown directly to our suite which was huge and fantastic.
The food, the facilities, the grounds, the service, the staff, the airport transfer - everything was top notch and a wonderful 24 hours of rest and relaxation before moving on to Hoedspruit for safari.
Thank you to the Residence team for making our arrival in SA so special.
