“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

My wife and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon in November 2012. Apart from a few small 'niggles', the overall experience was fantastic. Very friendly staff, beautiful room with amazing sea view, welcome drink in arrival and also a bottle of champagne and some delicious prawns on settling into our room. The location is spectacular overlooking a long sandy beach and the hotel facilities such as the rooftop deck was amazing. The only two slight downsides were that there did not seem to be many people staying at the hotel while we were there which meant that there was a slightly unusual atmosphere and a slight eerie feeling to the place for example the bars on the roof deck were closed and we were the only ones up there. Perhaps this was just because if the time of year we visited and I suppose it is called Wilderness for a reason! The restaurant was also not in full swing at the time but that just gave us the opportunity to visit some of the great restaurants close by. Overall a fantastic experience and we would highly recommend this hotel. Hope to return again some day if we make it back to South Africa!

Myself and husband stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon and had an amazing time, we were upgraded to the honeymoon suite which was the most amazing suite I have ever stayed in :) The views of the sea from our private balcony were unreal. The room was huge, bed so comfy and the free standing bath was an added bonus! Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had dinner in the hotel both nights and it was so tasty. I booked a facial in the spa and it was wonderful and the spa staff so friendly. The pool and hot tub were great and again with views of the sea. I would love to stay in this hotel again

The "views' are spectacular...but the food is pretty awesome as well! We were staying some where else but decided that a stroll along the beach for lunch was the thing to do. Lunch menu was very comprehensive, ranging from sandwiches to full sea food platters. We both had hamburgers....which were to die for!!! Truly one of the best burgers ever eaten, home made patties, old style chips...the portion was huge and delicious...well worth the walk for the Views and the food!

We stayed one night in two linked rooms via a small lobby. Both rooms looked over the beach through vast glass windows with balconies. The whole hotel had lovely decor and the children enjoyed the games room.

I arrived in the dark so had no idea what lay ahead.
The welcome was warm and the interior of the hotel held one surprise after the other.
My suite was very luxurious - overlooking the sea.
Once the sun was up I got to see the expanse beyond the hotel - a worthy and apt name - "VIEWS" which stretch as far as the eye can see over the Indian Ocean.
Access to a gym and spa made me very reluctant to go to work.
The attentive service of the staff made me feel like royalty.
The dining experience as well as room service had me determined to come back for more.
My only regret was that my husband was not with me to experience it too.

Room Tip: Ask for sea facing room. Book in as soon as you can to take full advantage of all they have to offer...

We stayed here for 1 night on our honeymoon.
We where taken away with the decor of this hotel.
Room was huge and overlooked the sea front - it was very windy & wet when we were there so didnt venture to the beach.
We had dinner in the Ocean Bar and it was yummy. Our waitress was so much fun and they loved my Irish Red Hair..
We where given a spa voucher as a gift for our honeymoon and they went out of their way when i asked for another treatment. Lovely experience.
Would have liked to have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Sea view room is amazing

Every inch of this hotel screams beach. Even the mountain view rooms are decked out in beige and turquoise, making you feel like you're at the seaside even when you can't see the ocean. Beach-facing rooms have floor to ceiling glass - you can see and hear the ocean perfectly. Get your dinner sent to your room (no extra cost) so as not to miss a minute of the view. Staff are wonderful and friendly, the breakfast buffet was great and had some original touches alongside the old favourites (biltong for brekkie!!). I wish I could live here.

Room Tip: It's worth splurging on a sea-facing suite
