Reviewed 31 October 2016

The location is great, on the cliff tops, views out to sea. However that is where the positive aspects stopped for us. We booked a luxury lodge - there is clearly a difference between their description of luxury and ours. Accommodation is sparse and well worn, with little or no storage space, hanging rail provided was useless, leaving a shelf...

Everything could have been great, but it didn´t work... On the day of arrival we had to wait for towels until 8.30pm. When we went to have breakfast the next morning the buffet was nearly empty, we had to wait for coffee and hot breakfast for more than 20 minutes. Location is great but in the middle of nowhere.

at the end of a long and dusty road, a nice retreat with amazing rooms . Tent 4 (booked as executive sea-view), does not have much of a sea view, but it's like being transported a few centuries back . Kind of lost in the bush with all modern conveniences .. the place actually looks better that the pictures on...

We expected allot from our booking. On picture rooms look stunning and the view was gorgeous. The relatively high prices also suggested we are in for a treat - however it was the biggest disappointment of our trip. Despite all we can see the place has allot of potential.

Our honeymoon chalet at Misty Mountain Reserve (MMR) was the quiet secluded retreat we wanted. The sumptuous bedroom and balcony overlooked a field with uninterrupted idyllic views of the Indian Ocean beyond. A jacuzzi bathroom to the side with an enclosed balcony was just the place for a sundowner or two watching the sunset and birds. Bad weather meant that...
