We have just spent a fabulous week at this wonderful resort. We had a corner rooms with spectacular views of the ocean and grounds. We have just celebrated our golden wedding anniversary and I cannot think of a better location in which to have been. We will have lasting memories of this week. Bob & Dass UK

We always seem to have great weather for our stay. The gazebo and grass and pool area are the ultimate relaxation areas for your afternoon read or tea or cocktail. We saw huge schools of dolphin passing almost every day all within eyes views. The perfect central place to stay with Knysna just 30+km's away as well as daily trips... More

From the moment we arrived we were blown away by the excellent service and overall cleanliness of the venue.We stayed on the lagoon side on the first floor. The bingo and the personnel show was entertaining.In my experience the resort compares very well to international resorts like Club Med, if not better!
