“Good stay with the Bafokeng”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

Was there with my family, both adults and children. Good sized room, very friendly staff from the reception, to the waiters, to manager. Very good scenery, gives one a piece mind away from the buzz of the city. Good food too! The rooms look beautiful. The only small snag was the lack of information on how to operate the up to date technology(lights, coffee maker etc) in the bedroom. Probably this might have changed as i went there when it was still fairly new. Stunning bathroom, with all essentials for bathing. Otherwise the place is wonderful, i don't mind going there again.

I am always loathe to rate anything full marks, however a very good just fails to sum up this special place ... It has SOUL, and it emaniates from the people here, the vegetation, the grounds, the hotel and almost the earth itself ...

Situated in the Worlds Largest Sports Training Complex at High Altitude, within one of the richest Platinum Mining Regions on the planet ... so be ready to see a famous sporting face hard at work doing either winter and or high altitude training, but that is the thing, the exclusivity is such that you only get a glimpse, or should I say you feel so private and pampered here, I would imagine you could write a book a novel here with rich challenging contrasts and deep passionate love affairs ...

and why ... I can only pin it down to the Staff, they really really care, they are just so pleased that you would consider being their guest ...

Enjoy and for you budding writers out there maybe I too will recognise you backdrop to you next super novel ...

Room Tip: Almost every room is a great room as the design is so clever, I would prefer top floor overlooking t...

We travelled as group of friends.

Usually use Sun City but they were not available.

The hotel is a real WOW property and great alternative to Sun City. The location is perfect for Game reserve and spa visits.

The staff are really friendly and try to please you every step of the way. The Management is ever present which is a great change as they interact with the guests. Paulo, Kevin and Alex.

The rooms are stunning. Great decor and luxury amenities. Loved the little night lights that activate under your bedside table in the dark. The beds are awesome, simply huge. All the rooms seem to have a view of the landscape that goes on forever. We were shown the Suites which are more like small townhouses. They are amazing, sadly out of my budget.

Restaurant: Food from heaven. Excellent menu choices and well presented. More Haute Cuisine which is wonderful and not excessively priced. Great wine selection.

Spa: There is no spa although there are apparently plans to add one. There is a spa 5 minutes down the road and the hotel can arrange treatments of one of their partners in the area.

This was a real treat and I will be using this hotel again instead of Sun City...

Room Tip: Poolside offer great views.

I had the pleasure of staying in the above resort in April 2011. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. It had everything one could dream of for a relaxing stay away from the rat race! The hotel and grounds are emaculate, the staff and welcoming and friendly, and the General Manage, what more can one say, Paulo is a perfectionistk, and went out of his way to make sure all our needs were met, he is certainly the best GM I have come across in a very long time. He is certainly an asset!!

The rooms are spacious and elegant, bathrooms and products are to dream of. The food is out of this world. Having a nightcap or evening drink you get to see spectaular views of the landscape and skyline. The early morning coffee brings the sounds of local birds and wild life. It is certainly the place to go and relax.

I look forward to my next stay at this resort!

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing!!!
