Calling this place a hotel is doing it an injustice. It truly is a hidden gem. As soon as you enter the hotel, you feel transformed. It exudes serentiy and calm, and you immediately feel at peace. The details at this hotel are amazing. The rooms are beautifully and creatively decorated, the outdoor area is full of plants, the path to your room is lit by lanterns at night, and the food is delicious. The chef actually comes out at each meal to present you with the menu. At what other hotel does that happen? I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again, especially if I wanted a place where I could completely relax. If you are looking for a place to stay that is unique and high quality, do not hesitate to stay at the African Rock Hotel. I feel very fortunate that I stumbled across this oasis. I only wish that I could have stayed longer!
