We stayed for 2 nights on the 'De stress' package at R2390 each. Just under £420 in total. This included a spa room, 1x2 course dinner, 1x3 course dinner, 2x breakfasts & 1x lunch plus 2x 1hour treatments each. A bargain! The only extras were drinks and a few things on the menu had a supplement.
The food was excellent, the only wine we had was their Cabernet Sauvignon & this was fine & reasonably priced. Yes, the breakfast buffet was limited as per the previous review but there was something for everyone plus the cooked options.
The bedroom was spacious with walk in shower & the bath in the bedroom. The room was incredibly hot even with the ceiling fan & a floor standing fan. Air conditioning is a necessity here. We understand that the problem is lack of enough electricity due to the remote location but it really does need to be sorted.
Spent a very hot day (43deg C) in the shade by the beautiful pool, interrupted by massages etc in the spa. Very relaxing.
The staff were so friendly, Elize never stopped laughing & Bernie was a star. Lidelle on reception couldn't do enough for us.
We would definitely return if it was ever possible.
