Stayed here for my 50th birthday. What a treat!! We checked in for 3 nights and from the word go, I knew this was going to be special. On arrival we were met at the front door and our car was whisked away to its parking space underground. Check in was smooth, with complimentary drinks and then we were taken to our luxury suite with the finest views over the golf course and and out to sea. We were warned by our porter to keep our doors locked when we were inside the room, but if we were sitting on the balcony it would be fine. The reason being visiting baboons who have learned to open the doors of the suites to get in for the food in the kitchenettes. Not long after that we had our first visitor passing in front of us on our balcony!
Our meals were taken in Cafe Z and from breakfast through to dinners, the food was excellent as well as very friendly and slick service! There is also a formal restaurant, called Zachary's but we did not manage to visit this-next time.
We arranged a day hike through the estates private forest and meandered down to the river with our very knowledgable guide,William,where we had booked canoes for a slow and leisurely paddle down to Noetzie beach. There we had a lunch arranged for us at the hotels private castle on the beach, sitting outside watching the waves rolling in. What an unforgettable day.
The hotel also has a top golf course and spa which we did not use, as well as an indoor gym. Facilities also include tennis courts, archery and petanque.
A highly recommended hotel and nothing I could fault them on at all.
