My boyfriend and I had a wonderful relaxing stay. Such beautiful and peaceful surroundings. A massage at the spa is a must. The hotel has great facilities and great staff.
One of the most memorable stays we have had. We will Definitely be back!

My boyfriend and I had the most relaxing weekend we have had in a long time. It's incredibly peaceful and the sound of the river in the background is awesome! A wonderful massage at the spa is a must! Great facilities and great staff! One of our favorite spots by far!

We stayed at the lodge for a weekend and enjoyed it very much! The rooms were large and were well appointed with high quality fittings and very comfortable. The setting is beautiful, but unfortunately due to the rainy weather we were unable to enjoy the pool and sitting out areas to its full extent. The management and staff were friendly and very helpful.

We visited the lodge for one night in December. We were travelling in a group an even with us all arriving around the same time, the check-in went smoothly with the staff being friendly and helpful
The room was spacious and the decor modern with King size bed. The bathroom had a double shower, double basin and bath. We did however have to bath and shower in cold water as there was some or other issue with the geyser which was resolved by the next morning.

Our group went for a hot air balloon ride at 5am the next morning - it was a lovely experience with beautiful views. The departure took place from the lodge premises.

The restaurant buffet was tasty with a nice variety.

The spa at the lodge was superb, it had all the typical spa facilities one would expect all designed and laid out very practical and modern. The therapists were friendly and professional and the treatments very relaxing.

We plan on visiting the lodge again with our daughter, as the lodge allows for kids and has a large pool.

A beautiful destination and exceptionally managed. Absolutely friendly staff! The food was divine! The entire resort is neat and quite. The serenity is complemented by the flowing river that runs past the place. The rooms are spacious and luxurious with double showers. The Boma is ideal for small functions. The bar has a full size pool table together with other games. Overall it is a hidden gem!
