It's simply an amazing place to stay! Each time I go to SA, which I've done consistently through the years, I make my way back there... It's luxurious, clean, comfortable, and safe, with staff going above and beyond the call of duty to meet my needs. The owner takes great pride in the quality of the place... not something you find very often. It seems that no expense has been spared, and on enquiring about my next visit I've heard that the rooms are being updated again. There's a mall just across the road, tons of places to eat, fantastic breakfast, and the setting is incredible (you could spend the whole holiday just in the gardens and swimming pool- and there's a steam room too!). During my stays, I've often invited my SA friends and family over, and a number of them have now also booked breaks away there (or intend to). It's difficult to put into words just how lovely this place is, but if you choose to visit and stay, you'll find out just what I mean! (oh, and you have to try the curry off their menu too... yum!!)
