Stayed at Shining Waters for two nights...

Renato and Corinne thank you for a total relaxed vacation. Breakfast was definitely first class with Corinne preparing fresh breakfast to your taste. The view was breathtaking and comfortable and neat rooms was an extra plus points. Rooms service every day made the vacation even more relaxed. Until next time.

This is one of the cheaper accommodations in Wilderness but nevertheless you get everything you wish for. Great luxury rooms with balcony overlooking the Indian ocean. Nice garden with pool. Very good value for money. Definately recommend it to couples (no children allowed).
