This is one of the most stunning places I have visited. We had a huge villa with two bedrooms and two bathrooms with two inside and outside showers. Other than that the trees could have been cut down so we had a view over the valley, it was just lovely. Nothing to do but eat and relax. The weather let...

This is a really lovely intimate place, from the moment you arrive at the security gate you feel in complete luxury, greeted at the car by a member of reception, bags taken to your room while you are given a little main lodge tour, and complete the paper work. The rooms are just delightful, everything is thought of, even down...

This place is stunning and any photo you look of does not do it justice. I went in the room and immediately said to my fiance "if I won the lottery - this is what my dream place would look like." Well, plus the kitchen and all that trivial stuff! The place is fantastic and any photographer who manages to...

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of October as a family with 3 kids in tow. We all enjoyed our stay very much. Quirky, individual, unique, perhaps a little odd, but the 'complex' of Tsala is certainly enchanting and captivating, the setting once you get 'in position' is very soothing and quiet. The atmosphere is something that took...

Dear RowneyBirmingh... Thank you for your wonderful feedback. You have truly captured the essence of Tsala in your review. It is such a captivating property and the quiet surrounding only enhances the property.

We stayed in a Family Villa which had stunning views and was really cosy in a Winter. The food was also of an excellent standard, both at Tsala and Zinzi. The villas have a plunge pool but there is no main swimming pool which some families may miss if staying in the height is Summer.

My wife and I had our honeymoon here. I cannot say that I have ever experienced 5 star treatment such as we received.
