This hotel was my hub during a 6 week stay in South Africa. It suited my needs perfectly.
When I got off the plane exhausted from work, jet lag, etc., I slept for much of my first stay. This guest house does soundproofing and privacy better than any other guest house I stayed at in South Africa. It was the only guest house I stayed at where I thought it was possible to have sex without disturbing the other guests.
The second time I stayed I was coming back from a month in the bush. I arrived in a cyclone and they handed me a big umbrella that I used for the rest of my stay. An umbrella seems like a small thing but, after a month of being subject to the weather's every whim, being able to stay dry was really a delight. When I arrived, all of my clothes were so dirty I was considering throwing them out. But Teremok offers free laundry service and by the next afternoon, I had clean laundry.
I never had any problem getting spa appointments. Their skin care services are phenomenal.
They think of everything down to the last detail from the muffins available 24/7 in the eating area to the well stocked honesty bar to the beach towels WITH a beach bag. Not only are they thoughtful, but they make everything easy and that is my favorite part. The beach towels are in your room not available upon request, the wi-fi is free and available everywhere, the laundry is free, you don't have to check out the umbrella, and the furnishings are lovely but you never feel like you can't sit down on them.
Staying in 3 different rooms that had very different feels definitely made it fun, but it is the relaxing vibe they create that just can't be beat.
