We stayed in a large suite with a spectacular view of the sea--lovely deck and very elegant furnishings. However, we were there in late June and it was very chilly. There was a wall heating/AC unit in the bedroom but it was noisy. The second room of the suite with bathroom and dressing room was huge, unheated, and very chilly.... More

We stayed here for 1 night and I wish I had booked for longer. What an impressive place and everything from the staff (including the owners) to the service made us feel very special indeed. We stayed in the Neptune Room and the view is awesome. The bed faces the ocean across an open-plan style living room with flat screen... More

The Guesthouse is located directly on the beach and offers amazing views from some of its rooms. Even though the N2 is close by, we did not hear any traffic. The entire house is decorated in a very unique way with large windows and open door frames which offer a nice and cozy atmosphere. Our room was very comfortable and... More

Thanks to all the staff at Xanadu for a wonderful few nights spent there as part of my honeymoon. The almost 180 degree views of the ocean were breathtaking. We slept in comfort and were treated like royalty. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for some luxury in the Wilderness.

Serving as the end to our honeymoon roadtrip we spent two nights in the Presidential Suite at Xanadu Guest Villa. It was an impeccable suite with 180 degree ocean views!
