My stay at Amorello Bush Golf Lodge was one of my best weekend get aways ever. Sonia was very helpful with assisting my fiance and I with the booking one of the self catering chatets over the phone. The chalet was very clean and neat, the friendly cleaning staff came through everyday and kept the place spotless. The interior design... More

We had a really relaxing time at Amorello. Really enjoyable food. The staff was very helpful. I even got offered a fridge as I have a 11 month old baby and needed a place to store his food and milk. The golf course needs a little bit of attention. This is an ideal place to stay to explore the rest... More

We love Hluhluwe and Amorello is a comfortable, easy going place which is affordable. It is pretty basic but it has everything and the accomodation is comfortable. We enjoy the thatch covered bar and wooden deck with tables and comfortable couches, open to beautiful views of the bush and the food off the menu is proper comfort food, delicious and... More

Was at this beautiful, quite and amazing Lodge on the 11th Nov travelling with my boyfriend for a night as we had a long drive. We stayed at Impala Chalet as the rooms were full. We didn't mind to be on a self catering room as we were just there to rest for a night and go in the morning... More

Hi Hlengiwe, Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us, much appreciated. The chalets are very private, and granted, the bush at night can be a bit intimidating when one is not used to it, but i can assure you that you were 100% safe at all times whilst at Amorello. We are about to upgrade all... More

We arrived to check in..were asked to pay the outstanding amount on our credit cards..only to be told the credit card machine did not work..after 10 minutes the receptionist "made a plan". We asked if there was someone who could help us carry our luggage to the chalet the response was "no". So after 5 trips between the car and... More

HI Megan, Thanks for the review. Unfortunately credit card machines, even with dual sim cards, often do not pick up signal out in the bush which can be a bit frustrating for both parties, but i am really glad to see that my receptionist "made a plan" at least. Our games room is locked in order to control the usage... More

I have just spent the weekend of September 6th to September 9th at Amorello Bush Golf Lodge with a friend, and I actually had such a good time that I then came back the next weekend. It must be said that you should not expect to see the Big 5 while drinking your sundowner at the bar, but it is... More

Amorello is a fantastic place to use as a base to explore the Maputaland area. There is a well-maintained 9-hole golf course (mind the impala, zebra and wildebeest!) and a really good restaurant that serves very good pizza and other food. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Amorello is within close drives of Hluhluwe/Umfolozi Game Reserve and other... More

First we must say we did enjoy our stay, and recognize the efforts of the staff and owners to make every effort to help us. There are a couple of things on the minus side that should be more clear when making a booking decision, The lodge is very close to the R22 road, which is busy and we found... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Amorello Bush Golf Lodge & Conference Centre can be found on the R22 Sodwana road, past the little town of Hluhluwe in the heart of Zululand, nestled below the majestic Lebombo Mountains. Amorello Bush Golf Lodge provides both an ideal hideaway for a relaxing break or the perfect setting for corporate functions, conferences and weddings. The affiliated SAGU golf course is a short but testing 9 holer with 18 tee boxes set amongst the wild bush with wildebeest and antelope watching your every shot. Let the festivities begin after a good day out and join us at Amorello Sunset Deck Restaurant and Bar for a refreshing drink followed by a pizza fresh from our unique to the region pizza oven. We have an extensive menu to tempt you. Stay over and choose from one of our Big 5 rooms or our 4 modern fully fitted self-catering 3-star Bush Chalets located in the heart of our bush golf course surrounded by thick indigenous trees. If you prefer something a bit more private, we also have our exclusive and lavish 5-star Ihlozi Private Lodge available. Amorello offers free hi-speed wireless internet access to all our visitors as well as use of our helipad for landings. We also have a big screen TV for the sports fans, a fantastic rock swimming pool, a fully equipped gymnasium and a kiddie’s jungle gym which gives everybody something to do. ... more   less
