We recently spent a week at Hamanasi with our two boys, a teenager and a 7 year old. It was an absolutely wonderful holiday, for each of us. We love small, intimate, nature-oriented lodges, and have stayed at many, including some of the world's best in Southern Africa. Hamanasi compares with the finest of these, in accommodations, food, activities, access to amazing nature, and service.
Everyday there was something engaging to do, for both my husband and I, and for both of our boys. The diving and snorkelling is spectacular and the team at Hamanasi is expert, safety oriented, knowledgable and so friendly. The inland adventures are fun and really showcase the beautiful nature, the incredible history, and the detailed knowledge of the local guides. We got into the incredibly therapeutic habit of going to bed early and getting up with the sun.
The staff are as gracious and friendly as so many of the posts on this site suggest (we were a bit skeptical before arriving!) They make sure every detail is attended to, but doing it in such a charming, relaxed and friendly way. They go the extra mile, and make you feel that you enjoying your holiday is the most important thing in their day.
Our accommodations were spotless, and accommodated our family well. They have a wonderful blend of local decor, but meet a high international standard.
From first to last, a wonderful place to stay.
