We stayed here during our honeymoon only one night. This was kind of unfortunate since we would have loved to stay there many more nights. We were so kindly received, and our room (cottage) was amazing. The preparations for our own braai by the staff was really good. The complete expercience was very romantic and this was for a big part thanks to the staff and management. We would love to visit again in the future.

We stayed at Thulamela three nights. We were so happy to book such a romantic and beautiful accomodation. Penny, the owner, is really friendly and gives you a lot of Information what you can do and where you can go for dinner. The ways are decorated with flowers on the ground and in glasses on the trees, so lovely! When you get closer you will see a few flaws like some little holes in the wood or the shower was leaking, but the bed is really nice and we enjoyed being so close to nature. The breakfast was good and balanced. I don't liked the jacuzzi because I don't like plastic tub. But all in all a very lovely place!

This was an excellent stay with superb breakfasts either served at the room or in picnic form..The attention to detail is outstanding.. The peace and quiet of the location is very special and definitely worth a repeat visit
