It was decorated in a soft traditional way. The home had an extensive collection of African art that was very impressive. The property was located on a... More

Simply, the best hotel I have stayed at. The service, staff, view, food and whole experience was fantastic. I celebrated my 50th birthday with my family and friends. I could not think of a better place to do so. Thank you.

This was superb. Feeling tired and stressed on arrival I left feeling so much better. The staff couldn't do enough for my husband and me. The place itself is simply out of this world and the food second to none. I couldn't recommend it more. A treasure!
