“Mountain Retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2005

My wife and I stayed in one of the Chalets in Feb 2004. It is a beautiful resort in a very scenic location. There are a few walks that can be commenced from within the grounds of the resort. The walk to the Blue Grotto is lovely. You end up at a waterfall and a pool where you can go swimming. The resort has it own lake where you can canoe, there is a small pitch and putt course running through the grounds.

The food served at the breakfast buffet and the buffet carvery are of top quality as is the service through out the Drakensberg Sun.

We will be returning to this resort in 2005 because it is wonderful place to relax and rewind
