Gilbert is a great host and made meal times special. The overall property is quite pleasant but the lodges are very closely packed together. The massage at the spa was very good but unfortunately we were in a hut that was very close to some other guests lodge, so we could hear them talking for 40 minutes of the 60 minute session. The spa hut has a glass door and high windows facing the lodges, both of which do not have curtains. I recommend taking mosquito repellant for an undisturbed night of sleep.

The Staff is not friendly and the place isn’t that clean; the pool was dirty, and we were chased out of the picnic spot, my privacy was invaded, I would not recommend the place to anyone. A bad place.

Our (Me and my wife) unit Kaya 15 did not have hot water and we were told that the geyser was out of order and the plumber was not available to fix as it was weekend .We were advised to bath at unit 11 which was booked to cater for 4 kids only or use unit 12 which was booked for other family we. The restaurant did not have much of the items on the menu and did not warn us before ordering, only after we ordered we were told that the items are out of stock claiming that the event which was being held there used all the stock which we found it unacceptable. The music noise from the event which went up to past 23:00 hours was also a problem to us. Cat and dog in the premises were also a problem which we were not warned about. The rooms where very clean

Hakunamata was the best breakaway weekend I have ever had. The staff are friendly and make you feel at home and very special. The food was out of this world. The accommodation was gorgeous and very relaxing. The spa treatments were heaven.

The room and surrounding area was a very beautiful place. We enjoyed the food and the spa treatments were relaxing. They provided waterbottles which I found as a unique and special touch to our welcome.

We went for my husbands birthday and all aspects of Hakunamatata exceeded my expectation. From the moment we arrived their service, food, spa treatments and accommodation was great. Would definitely return.

We enjoyed our stay. The place has back up generator and water supply. The weather was cold so couldnt enjoy the pool area, will come back in summer. The resturant catered for our vegan diet for both breakfast and dinner.

So firstly the place is beautiful but 1. we got to the reception area no one was there then this guy came running he’s on the fon then he says “eita” then he goes quiet like what the hell I felt like I came to someone’s house and I’m not paying we had to explain why we where there. 2. This same person had to show us the place again poor communication skills, I think your staff need lots of training no professionalism whatsoever. 3 We ordered room service nothing came we had to go to the restaurant and the person I spoke to casually laughed and said I forgot like😡 4.on the last day at breakfast we where told we are out of bread but surprisingly we saw one of the staff members going out with a basket full of bread. The worst part is we couldn’t order anything on Uber eats because the place is far from fast foods or restaurants. We went there for my birthday and juss wow we ended up going out to eat 🙄
