Due to a problem with a booking system from another company, one of the only places left was Empire. Boy did we dodge a bullet with that one. We were greeted by a lovely lady (who's name escapes me) who took us for a tour around the shared living areas, kitchen, spa and property then it was off to our... More

Thanks for such a great review! I'm glad you were well received and thoroughly enjoyed your room and stay. The hamper has a great array of produce which can also be catered to certain tastes too. The fire place in the Luxury villa definitely makes for cosy romantic evenings in the cold winter. Sounds like you had the perfect relaxing... More

My partner took me to Empire Retreat for my birthday weekend - we were absolutely in heaven when we first walked into our luxury villa and we loved our stay (didn't want to go home). We booked last minute so got a discount but the cost is still astronomically high. Apart from that just about everything else was perfect. The... More

My husband and I received two nights accommodation at the Empire Spa Retreat as a wedding gift and it was like a second honeymoon (all in the one year). The retreat has an Asian inspired 5 star luxury feel to it all set in a beautifully secluded bush setting and when you are soaking in the jacuzzi sipping Champagne you... More

My partner had a sporting competition down south so we decided to make the most of the weekend and get the Empire Experience Package with a Courtyard Suite. The grounds are beautiful, with vineyards, olive trees, and a sauna and jacuzzi. It is a wonderful retreat if you are looking for somewhere quiet and relaxing. Our room in particular was... More
