My wife and I got married on the 7th of May. The first night we spent on a 3 star hotel, which was alright. The second day we checked in at the Karkloof Spa, which was going to be the most luxerious, relaxed and adventurous place ever for both of us. Me coming from Scandinavia, I did not know what to expect but I sure did get a positive surprise as the ranger took us to our lodge. We went in gazing like little kids being let in a toy shop after closing. I think both of us thoght we were in paradise the next 24 hrs - and we sure was. The food was amazing, dining at the restaurant and was super romantic, and high class. After the 4-course meal we went back to the lodge hand in hand only to find out the staff had turned our lodge into a romantic honeymoon lodge with candle lights and hot water in the tub, wow. During day time we went mountainbiking with the excellent guides who told us interesting facts about nature and animals in the area. When getting a lift with the ranger we always stopped to look at animals and had a great chance to capture the animals photographically. They also made a picnic for us on one of the tours, which was a pleasant surprise - thanks staff.
The spa department is a paradise on its own. The area is relaxed and peaceful and only adds to the enjoyment of the stay. We stayed a while in the big pool, then we went to sit in the steam room, then we went in an outside pool.
Karkloof Spa made us experience what a real sweet honey moon is supposed to be like.
