My husband and I stayed in the Honeymoon Suite at Thulani Lodge in October 2011 and cannot recommend it enough. The grounds are lush and peaceful and the breakfasts were delicious.
We LOVED the bathroom of the Honeymoon Suite. Our favorite feature was the heated stone floor. The extra large tub is also nice.
The decor of the room is a traditional South African - thatched ceiling, ostrich eggs, colorful wall hangings - set the tone for our vacation.
Our host Hartmut was welcoming and very willing to make suggestions for restaurants, the best routes to travel, shopping, and tourist sites. We didn't see Claudia much but we certainly enjoyed her cooking!
The lodge is quite a drive from the Cape Town airport (~45 min - 1 hour) and can be intimidating if you are driving at night, after a long flight, on the opposite side of the road, on unfamiliar winding country roads (as we did) but luckily we had rented a car and were on a relaxing vacation, so it didn't matter. If you aren't on a tight schedule and are looking for a peaceful getaway, the Thulani Lodge is a great bet.
