I visited the Manor earlier this month on 11th hour plans so not knowing what to expect, and it turned out to be the best decision I had made thus far this year! Its such an eclectic little place, exclusively quiet and so relaxing. It's a beautiful boutique hotel which is actually also a ranch with perfectly manicured lawns and a beautiful view overlooking Malili plains. Amazing swimming pool and the such a relaxing environment with the trees, greens and overarching palm trees. Its the kind of place that you go to and it feels like you have literally shut the rest of the world out.
The rooms wear great, generously spacious with tasteful homely décor and wooden earth tone finishing.
The food was excellent, fine dining at it's best. Chef Martin is a consummate professional not to mention very friendly. He took time to explain what was on the menu each day, which only made you look forward to your meal even more. The desserts were to die for, honestly the best I have had in a very long time. I enjoyed my stay and will definitely be back for sure
