if you are searching for opulence and decadence then search no further than the Mosaic at the Orient. The gastronomic experience will elevate your taste buds to a plethora of new heights. The discretion of the team made sure my girlfriend knew nothing of the proposal that awaited for her during our meal. Thank you to Mari, Chantel , Zele'... More

The Orient is an experience that has to be lived. The staff are superb & combined with dinner at Mosaic you are in for a treat. Do yourself a favour and go experience one of the most fabulous culinary and wine experiences in South Africa. WE WILL BE BACK!

When you arrive at The Orient, you will be greeted by a very friendly security guard at the gate of the conservation area. Thereafter, you'll be convinced that everything has been specially setup for you. As you drive in, a gentlemen will direct you to your parking (knowing exactly who you are). You will then be taken immediately to your... More

This is such a special place, we spend a night for a birthday celebration. Dinner was exceptional and all the small touches were magnificent. This is a truly 5 star experience. They go out of their way to spoil you from the moment you arrive. Don't just go for dinner, make sure you go for the full experience. The breakfast... More

Couldn't have chosen a better place for our 15yr anniversary. Moroccan and Indian themed luxury. Incredible food at Mosaic restaurant - both dinner and breakfast. Set on a private estate between JHB and Pretoria, this boutique hotel is a must visit for a romantic weekend.

I have no words for how magical this place is. A treasure hidden in the veld, with a 5 star restaurant - my compliments to the chef! Interior and exterior is mindblowing and I got to see some animals without expecting it. The Orient has enchanted me, a DEFINITE must when you find yourself near.

Words cannot really describe how incredibly amazing this hotel is. We stayed at the top floor's Constantinople and combined with a light lunch, dinner at the Mosaic and breakfast the next morning it's worth traveling to South Africa just for this experience. We truly felt like kings in this majestic castle. So many art works to look at and nooks... More

Everything was of the highest standard. The hotel is quite private, the rooms are beautiful and the food is amazing. The beautiful setting and lovely weather adds to the serene nature of this hotel. It is a special retreat for family, friends or couples.

Had the most amazing time at The Orient. We got spoiled from the minute we walked in yesterday for lunch till we left after breakfast. The venue and rooms are exquisite, the food is a work of art and the team is amazing. This was not our first time there and will definitely not be the last. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Restaurant-Mosaic-at-The-Orient/210774718940975
