It is difficult to put into words how completely sublime La Residence really is. We stayed for 3 nights following 4 great days on safari (see separate review of Ulusaba). Our room, No 3, was without doubt the most sumptious we have experienced anywhere, but that doesn't do it justice. We arrived late and it was already dark so it wasn't until the next morning that I opened the 2 huge double doors (one from bedroom and one from bathroom) onto our terrace. The view is simply breathtaking - mountains, vineyards, crisp air and fantastic smells of flowers. There are no set times for breakfast, or lunch, or dinner at La Residence - food (of the absolute highest quality) is prepared on demand at any time of day. The staff are all utterly delightful and quickly became friends. The service, needless to say, is spot on. In a few words I have tried here to describe the joy of staying at La Residence but really it isn't possible. I can only suggest you go and see for yourself but, if it's at the same time we are there (we will return as soon as possible) then please leave Room No 3 for us.
