One of the, if not THE, most elegant property in which I have stayed - excellence in all senses! Upon arrival until moment of departure staff makes one feel as though you are the most special person on earth - and you are!!! Appointments, food, staff setting could not be more comfortable and glamorous. A must see and stay! Definitely... More

This is a vacation or weekend away beyond all other. It is opulent but homely, besides incredible lounges, dinning rooms and outside patio, the appointments they use for serving food and tea are spectacular and of the finest. They just have a way of making you feel so special, including being greeted by the entire staff on arrival and departure,... More

This is an absolutely fantastic hotel. Everything from the arrival, the dinner service the staff engagement was absolutely spot on. Then the best part... the rooms, WOW a thousand times over, the hotel allow you to visit vacant rooms and I have to say not a single room we saw disappointed, they are all the size of Presidential Suites in...

My husband and I stayed at La Residence for 3 nights in May. From the moment we pulled up at the gate to the time we left we were spoilt by the view, the accommodation and the wonderful service. Our room was the Frangipani Suite and it was stunning. I'll start with the view - overlooking our lovely courtyard (with... More

We had an exceptional stay at La Residence and faultless. Our suite was tasteful and luxurious. The grounds are immaculate and fabulous views. Informal and hugely relaxing. Beautiful pool area with wonderful service

My husband and I had stayed at this unique hotel last year but we returned with ten friends recently for lunch just after The Literary Fair ended. Firstly, the level of service and attention to detail were of a very high calibre, all the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious, a particular starter of duck salad being one of...

We stayed here at New Year, enjoyed it so much that we came back!! We love the over stated opulence here, but love that Edward, Nick & the team tailor your stay. If you want to be showered with service; it happens. If you want to be left; the same service happens, it just doesn't look like it does! You... More

We recently returned back to New York after spending 2 weeks in South Africa on our honeymoon. I googled "African Safaris" and after doing much research, landed on Shannon Bishop and African Safari Home as my booking agent. We had a fantastic stay at La Residence and did not want to leave. Room 11 was truly incredible, and the food... More

We were greeted by a welcome group at the entrance of the hotel. A glass of rose bubbles and a small bouquet of freshly cut flowers. We were then shown to our suite No 7 which the main colour is red (my favourite colour). You have your own private sunbathing area with table chairs, sofa and sun lounger. We had... More
