Hire Car Vandilised on unsafe Road outside
Parking not secure and car was vandilsed while under the supervision of the manager at the hotel. Then no responsibility taken by the owner. Do not stay here if you want secure parking, its roadside parking. Also not '5 star' international level, even though they try to portrait themselves as such

Truly magical experience
Amazing! I have to say it was above and beyond my expectations. I arrived late in the night (11pm) and the staff, specifically Vashna, was so helpful in helping me arrange an airport pickup. They were on time and it was the most comfortable ride and great way to begin my trip. Upon arrival I got a personalized welcome and tour and welcome drink. The lodge is better than the pictures. With only 6 rooms, it’s very intimate and you get the utmost service. The breakfast in the morning was so fresh and delicious. The staff knew you by name and it was such a great feeling. My room opened up to the terrace by the pool and it was a nice treat to see the sunrise and sunset each day. The room was super cute. I had the lofted bed one and it was a fun experience. A couple of things though, I’m 5’5” and I was able to stand up straight, but anyone over that may need to for sure hunch a little at the top so be mindful of that. Also, there’s no iron/ironing board in the room, so just ask for it and they will bring it to you. I found this to be the case in all hotels I stayed in in SA. Best experience. Would totally recommend. It was close to everything. And the staff was great. They also helped me arrange a full day Cape Town tour and I had an amazing time!
