We were fortunate spend two wonderful nights at Spicers Sangoma Retreat in the pool suite. Upon arrival Alicia greeted us with a glass of champagne and she made sure that our glasses were never empty for our entire stay. Alicia is a credit to Sangoma and provided outstanding service throughout our stay. The food was another highlight of our weekend... More

We spent one short night here for our one year wedding anniversary and loved every moment of it, though it definitely wasn't long enough. We picked the "Pool Suite" as I wanted a tub facing the views. The room did not disappoint! It's appointed with a large king bed, fireplace, open shower/wet area and a separate toilet with door. There... More

Have just returned from 3 fabulous days at Sangoma. What a luxurious destination for a wonderful break . Pablo (Manager) and Sam (chef) were fantastic nothing was too much for them. Food was an absolute pleasure. Each night's menu was better than the night before. Rooms and bathrooms were spotlessly clean and beds really comfy. Loved all the decor and... More

We stayed in the Tent suite for a night. The room itself was just perfect. They greeted us with music and champagne and ensured we were comfortable in our room. The beds were comfortable and the open shower was a highlight! The retreat is very relaxing and all the staff are genuinely welcoming everywhere you go. They have a beautiful... More

I have just got back from staying at Sangoma Retreat, which is certainly not a luxury retreat but more compares to faulty towers – thank goodness, we only stayed one night. The package was all inclusive ie. minibar, wines, lunch, dinner and breakfast. We checked in at lunch time yesterday and was provided with a lunch menu that consisted of... More

cant say enough about the service & food - the staff were very friendly, always there when you needed them but unobtrusive. The breakfast was yummy and the dinner with matching wines sublime. The accommodation was good but needs a little maintenance but because of the above who really cares.

Where do I start... Location.... Amazing, whisper quiet with beautiful views. Accommodation.... Immaculate in design and decor. Wood burners, huge bathtubs and the comfiest bed make you never want to leave your rooms oh and not to forget the all inclusive mini bar which contains French champagne. Food and drink.... The food is the creation of the lynch pin of... More
