Kedar Heritage Lodge, Conference Center & Spa
Ranked #3 of 12 Hotels in Rustenburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 20, 2009

I discovered Kedar because I was looking for a good breakfast - and boy, did I find one!

I was staying in a guest house nearby which was a little inadequate, and the owner was quite disparaging about Kedar - which made me think (perversely, but, it turned out, correctly) that Kedar was probably a fine place.

In the end I had breakfast there on three consecutive mornings and enjoyed each one more than the last. The guest house in which I was staying had no chairs or tables in the rooms, so I took the liberty of setting up my laptop in Kedar's restaurant (it's called The Armory) - and the staff were quite cool with that.

The hotel has a number of conference rooms, as well as a spa, and on my third morning visit I was taken to check this out. I was impressed: each of the treatment rooms has two beds as well as a shower and spa bath, and sliding doors which open out onto the view of a beautifully tranquil dam. The spa has all the usual treatments, and, on the flat roof of one of the buildings, a nude sunbathing deck.

The Amory Restaurant is decorated with memorabilia and weapons from the South African War (the Anglo Boer War), and the lovely bushveld gardens are decorated with brass sculptures of famous people from South Africa's past.

The hotel shares grounds with the Paul Kruger Country House Museum - but unfortunately I didn't make time to visit that, which I now regret. But that's alright: because the next time I go to Rustenburg, I'll definitely make a point of staying.

Even if the hotel wasn't lovely (and it is) - I'll stay because the staff are that friendly.

I found this hotel through a random google and im very pleased with the results. We stayed 2 nights and I wish it had been longer. Everything about the Kedar is arranged for a chilled out, magical experience.

From the reception area to the cabins there is a great finish and a true feeling of being in Africa. The food, service and spa were wonderful. We were lucky enough to have a tour of the wine cellar in order to choose wines to match our meals. Nothin was to much trouble.

We also took advantage of a game drive - which left from Sun City but was well worth it. Even staying within Kedar though provides opportunities to see non-predator animals.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting an opportunity to relax.

This was my first trip to S. Africa...so everything was new to me...but this hotel is a find! I came with friends from Pretoria, they had stayed here before. I had my own room, which was large and very nicely decorated,, with all the ammenities...hair dryer soap, shampoo, tub AND shower. Everything was clean and yet had the African character of wood, stone and a very high thatched roof, and nice big overhead fans to cool! You coudl hear many different bird sounds throughout the morning and evening...which really added to the atmoshphere.

The grounds were very nice, and there were several small buildings each separated by paths with lots of trees and plants...so it seemed very private. The food in the main dining room was very good...the chef came out the first night to tell us that he would make something special because the fish we ordered was not available. Instead we had a wonderful seadfood melange with delicious vegetables. Breakfast was good too, with lots of variety and made to order omlettes.

The atmosphere was very calm and tranquil...we stayed 2 nights, and I wish could have stayed longer...for the price...this was an excellent ecperience!!

Some 20 years ago, Recreation Africa purchased a portion of Boekenhoutfontein, the historic farm of President Paul Kruger. Over the years, adjoining land has been acquired, culminating in the consolidation of an area of some 700 acres, which has been game fenced and populated with a wide variety of game, including eland, blesbok, impala, bushbuck, nyala, kudu, zebra, blue wildebeest and giraffe. Invaluable environmental work has been done to remove alien vegetation and restore the wetlands which attract prolific birdlife. With a Spa in an idyllic setting, jutting out over a natural wetland lake teaming with fish and birdlife, it is sure to enhance the spiritual and physical relaxation you expect from a Spa in the country. The Heroes bar allows guests to partake of sundowners whilst watching the sunset over the natural bush. Other facilities include a large swimming pool, game drives, Paul Kruger Country House Museum Tour, Team building area, and open air conference areas. All this, just one and a half hour’s drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria, and only 15 minutes from Sun City and the Pilanesberg Game Reserve - home of the “Big Five”. ... more   less
