What a lovely property. The room we have is spacious and well appointed. However, the best of the best is the staff, knowledgeable and very helpful only our stay was only two night. We had dinner one night and the food was delicious but also well prepared, with very attentive service.

We recently had our third trip to South Africa and all have included stays at The Residence. Coming on the heels of the pandemic, we were fearful our expectations would exceed the reality, but that was definitely not the case. It remains our favorite hotel in all our many travel experiences. Decor, service, food, spa and other amenities are all impeccable. This trip included several days at their safari camp--Ndlovu-- and it is the perfect sister property--reviewed separately.

Absolute bliss! We had the most amazing time ever. The rooms are spectacular and the private pool, jacuzzi and sauna are just unbelievable! The service is outstanding and Jephat the chef is extremely talented. My husband says it was the best lamb chops he has ever had! Breakfast options are divine.

We were welcomed by the guard, who took us to reception. Checking in was seamless and included completion of covid questionnaire and recording of temperature. Rambo assisted us with our luggage and took us to our suite. The Madiba suite is exceptional and we got an orientation around the suite. He further took our lunch order. The salmon was perfectly done. Later had dinner outside after spending time in our jacuzzi. We had pork belly and salmon. The pork belly was accompanied by a delicious pumpkin sauce. Did drinks at the bar and later moved to the lounge. The lounge was disinfected prior to us moving there as there were previous guests. Breakfast included cold and hot servings with could being buffet style. The menu is not extensive, however the food preparation and plating is tops. Forgot my fitness tracker and was able to pick it up a day after we had checked out. Amazing service for the entire period we were there. Thank you for making it memorable.
