An evening of culinary delight with a pre country home baked selection of Shiraz Cheesecakes followed by a five course dinner paired with this wonderfull estate wine. If you are in the area it is a must. It smacks of traditional and cultural culinary fun. They have a tasting every first Saturday of the month so don’t miss out.

My husband and are from Cape Town, where we work in the Entertainment and Hospitality industries respectively. The hotel has beautiful gardens and the staff were great and attentive. We were in room 5. There was no hot water, and on our 2nd night, no water at all. There was no WiFi as advertised. Just after our arrival, maid service... More

What a fantastic little hide away...the pictures really do not do this place justice, it's beautifully decorated and the gardens are close on 20 plus years old. Great staff that are friendly and very helpful and the spa treatments were fantastic. Best if all was their great wine selection. Really surprising little spot and would highly recommend.

A definite break from city life, this is a must for city dwellers. Great food, and serenity. A few minutes away from Bela Bela. They have the friendliest and most helpful staff. Comfortable rooms and lots of nearby attractions. will definately be going back.

Hidden in the otherwise dry bushveld area you turn a corner and find the lush green oasis which is Shangri-la! Super friendly staff, excellent food, relaxing atmosphere and a Spa to boot! Lots to explore and look at, antique furniture and objects collected by the owners from their travels all over the world. Walking around the property we found more... More

We had a few issues with our room which was a rondavel - the toilet did not automatically stop flushing after use, the tap was loose, there was no safe or hairdryer in the room (which is something we expected in a hotel of this class). However the service was absolutely fantastic, and the food was delicious, so this made... More
