Very poor service , when the owner (penny) was informed , she ignored and gave off a bad attitude nothing was done about it. We had found frogs in the jaccuzi , it's not worth it No value for your money

Penny was such a gem, such a warm welcome she gave us. The place is breathtakingly beautiful, clean, comfortable and definitely very romantic. The breakfast served daily was phenomenal, scrumptious and so well set out. Definitely recommend this place to one and all.... Penny will definitely be seeing more of us again

What a delight to spend 3 nights at Thulamela. Unobtrusive staff, innovatively prepared breakfasts and a comfortable room with an uber private deck and jacuzzi area. Loved the touches of flower petals scattered around.

The quiet and private cottage we stayed in was well-equipped with all we needed in the time we were there. There is a braai-area with tongs and matches that we enjoyed, with a garden-chair to enjoy the time alone. The 'spa-bath' was nice and hot, with some bubbles when you want them, on the deck right in the jungle. Very...

Dear Penny, Gertrude, Julia and staff. Thank you for another excellent time at Thulamela. This was our third time visiting Thulamela and not the last time. The rooms, service, breakfast and braaipack was great. Your dedicated service is the reason why you will see us soon again.

Most amazing romantic place you can go. No TV and no radio. Just you and your partner. With the jaquzzi. We did cycling during the day as hazyview is close to everything. And had the most relaxing evenings. What a truly amazing place to be with your loved one and to relax

The location is great because it's so close to the Hazyview shops and yet very quiet as you sit on your deck in the tree canopy. The jacuzzi was fabulous and it was also nice having the choice between...
