Sadly we have only had 2 nights at this lovely hotel before starting a safari. The staff have been amazing and celebrated my husbands 60th with a surprise cake and decorated the bed for him. The also arranged a taxi to take us to the National park where we saw numerous animals including a lioness. The hotel has very good security and COVD policy.

Samuel was an excellent server in the restaurant. He was helpful, cordial, and very engaging. He made sure all of our needs were met. We are from US and his English was very good. He was articulate and answered all of our question.

We stayed for two nights and it was wonderful. The hotel is beautiful. We especially loved the swimming pool and the overall warmth atmosphere. Luxery and feeling home at the same time! Staff was extraordinary friendly, from beginning to the end. Even at the last day (when we allready checked out) they helped us with our traffic problems and storing our bags. Especially thanks to Maureen, James and Aquiline for making our stay unforgettable.
