The Villa offers more than just accomodation and food. It is the unique atmosphere of beauty and harmony, the carefully chosen decoration and colours all around, the garden, etc. that make this place an ideal location to recharging and finding inner peace. I can full-heartedly recommend this place to those who like beauty and harmony.

We have been in Villa Rivercat the last three years. As Rinoo, the owner says, "this is not a hotel, it is a home, so feel welcome". That we do, which is why we are going back again this year for a fourth time!

The fruit salads at breakfast are great and you have a collection of puppies and kittens to play with. Lots of places nearby for yoga... More

The building itself is great and all the rooms full of lovely antiques which really make you feel like you're in a home, not just a guesthouse. Also a great location 30 seconds from the beach. However, I think considering we had a shared bathroom... More

we group booked here for a wedding in February, thought it would be nice, all in one place … we have a small child but nonetheless, we had the top room on the top floor claimed to be the best, if that was the case, I feared for the others … bed linen & covers were basically table clothes, mattresses...
