My boyfriend and I stayed at Kiara earlier this month and thoroughly enjoyed it! The units are modestly decorated but very comfortable. In terms of location it's ideally situated between Clarens and Golden Gate National Park so whether we were in the mood for a hike or an indulgent lunch both options were easily accessible.
There are lovely walking trails, a spa and a cosy pub / restaurant on site. All of which we made use of and all of which we enjoyed.
The staff (from the Front Desk to the man who cleans the braai's in the morning...), however, were the best part of the lodge! Unobtrusive, courteous and so very friendly and helpful - I can't fault them at all. Wonderful staff!!!!!
