It's rare to come across a location that speaks to the heart and soul on many levels.. Birchwood Hotel offers conference venues.. A Chapel.. A gym.. Several dining venues.. A spa.. A pool.. And various rooms on various gradings.. This means that from the most fussy to the most indulgent budget can be accommodated here.. I had the privelage of a room in the silver birch part of the estate.. Room 610.. Clean.. Small kitchenette.. Shower only.. Flat screen TV.. In room safe.. Ironing board.. Iron.. Kettle microwave.. Coffee and tea in room.. Room service by WhatsApp or a phonecall what ever suits.. And pretty much the most essential these days.. Free WiFi with good connectivity and speed.. Breakfast with a massive buffet and eg station.. Several hot items to choose from.. (could use some clear labels to avoid any items you may dislike) But none the less served from 6am.. It was delicious.. Proximity to the airport and free shuttles are a plus.. BUT!! THE HOTEL IS NEAR THE FLIGHT APPROACH PATH FOR AIRCRAFT on touch down.. The rooms are quiet and you need to be outside to hear the near constant drone of the jets coming over. But for those that are not into noisy aircraft.. Please keep this in mind.. For me.. Being an aircraft nerd.. I could not be any happier! Check in speedy Check out just as fast Golf carts to take you to your room if you didn't arrive by private vehicle.. What more can I say.. Thank you for a lovely stay!

We had our matric dance function in the Serengeti Lapa. Some of the staff spent the night. Facilities were fantastic, all the staff were extremely helpful and kind. We asked to have 2 rooms that are close to each other and that was sorted out very quickly and efficiently.
