We arrived at night after a 700km+ motorbike ride so couldn't quite see any views. The staff were attentive. The accommodation was perfect, comfortable, practical, with a touch of luxury. The restaurant were lacking a few items but when you consider the route to the resort which we had just travelled you can understand. Views in the morning were amazing!... More

That led to some research on the internet and our great African Ski Adventure was launched! Our family has skied some of the best mountains in the... More

What an amazing weekend we had at the resort. The booking process was professional,quick email response and helpful. The drive to the resort is scenic but you need a 4x4 car. We loved our home for the weekend, 2 bed, white linen,clean and comfortable pillows and beds. The bonus is that you have the highest restaurant inside the resort. I... More

This place is wonderful, absolutely beautiful setting in a valley up in the Maluti mountains. We booked this place on a whim just to extend our road trip and it turned out to be one of the best stops we made. The resort was originally positioned as a winter wonderland, which from the pictures it def looks like a fun... More

Absolutely amazing!! We had fun the sky! Suitable for families, and adventure lovers. Take a hike in Summer to enjoy the majestic views of the Maluti moutains or go up a ski lift to try out the enduro tracks. For dinner try their ribs..these are too delicious. Chill outside in the evening for a view of the stars. P.S get... More

We arrived to find that although they offer alot of activities they dont actually carry all of them out. We did a monster biking trip with an instructor who made it really fun, but its not a great place to visit in the summer. There is skeleton staff and the activities are limited. We were charged almost R100 for an... More

Resort is remote but the drive there was spectacular. Hope you have a head for heights. There was no snow during my visit, wrong time of year but there are a wide range of other activities for the adventurous. Well worth the trip. They also claim to be the highest restaurant in Africa and I can believe it.
