Initially my fiancé and I wanted to get married in Mauritius with our closest family & friends. I never thought I would find a venue in SA that could compare to an island escape. We stumbled across Zinzi's Restaurant during our Easter vacation in Plett in 2013. The food at Zinzi's had us all speechless. We returned for supper the... More

Wonderful warm staff, food was delectable, villa was amazing, decor fabulous. We had a truly amazing romantic time in the country house, perfect for honeymoons or family holidays. We had 2 amazing meals there, one in Tsala and the other in zinzi. We will definitely be back.

We celebrated our 1yr anniversary last night at Tsala & I would definitely go back. A romantic spoil with incredible, tasty food & top notch service. Rare to find a 5star lodge that welcomes locals for dinner & treats u like a valued guest. Hope to be back early enough to watch the sunset. Magnificent gem!!

Just had a week at Hunters,this was our second visit. Upgraded to suite 25 with its own swimming pool. Staff, food and cleanliness first class. The grounds are beautiful. Nearby Brenton on Sea is worth a visit. Storms River is a must.

This place is just beautiful!! The staff were lovely and extremely helpful. The rooms/small thatched cottages were 'picture postcard' gorgeous however because of the thatched roofs there was an unusual and distinctive smell but it couldn't be helped. The main pool was great, although a little on the small side if the hotel is busy. We spent a lot of... More

The first time we came to Hunters was in 1998 just after finishing the Otter Trail. I remember we indulged in the 5 star luxury after this challenging trail. This time we just wanted to get away from the Joburg rat-race for a few days and decided to come back to Hunters. We were NOT disappointed! The gardens are beautiful... More

The country house is a series of thatched cottages in effect in the massive secluded grounds surrounding the main house. We stayed for two nights on the trip along the garden route. We got a fantastic place with its own garden and small pool. The attention to detail was exceptional with candles being lit for us across the accommodation when... More
