In February my wife and I returned to this wonderful hotel, for dinner and overnight this time, after we had dinner at the Hotel's restaurant Mosaic before. The owners converted the property into a Moroccan Castle with 10 Oriental themed rooms. We were in the Udaipur room and found it truly authentic. I've stayed in the Palace on the Lake in Udaipur 10 years ago and I must say this room really reminded me of that trip. The service is remarkable, friendly and unobtrusive. We received vanilla scented sparkling wine as welcome drinks upon arrival in our room. The room consisted of a sleeping area, separate lounge area, very spacious bathroom with a view over the garden from the shower and a balcony. The rooms are luxurious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Friends joined

Step in time to the world of the maharajahs. Once you enter you will feel like one until sadly you have to leave. This unique hotel stands out in authenticity, attention to detail and impeccable service. In addition it boasts an art collection of sculptures by Tienie Prichard. A collection of remarkable vintage Rolls Royce of the owner a huge conservatory filled with Eland and other buck where one can talk afternoon stroll or walk. The wonderful ten suites each named after a city were decorated by all the trinkets the owners collected over a period of time. Dramatic entrances, glorious wood work and collections of their anthology flow though this remarkable hotel. To boost Chantal culinary skills are superb. The staff is well trained and friendly. Well worth a visit even to

As far as five star hotels go, they're really great to stay at, but never quite home. Here is a remarkable exception. No check-inn, no arrangements at the leisure desk, no quarrels with the concierge - just arrive and before you know it you're sipping some bubbly and chatting to the owner about what's on the menu for the evening. Surrounded by a dazzling array of fine South African arts, each room is essentially a gallery of antique furniture, sculpture and canvases. Opulent to say the least but supremely comfortable. Dinner in itself is an experience close to religion at this establishment. Prepare to have your senses bamboozled by the extent of flavoursome creations from the award winning chef. Just like home, only better. The only thing you have to worry about is which

The secret behind The Orient Hotel is not the mesmerising art collectiion or antiques from the world over - it is the personal attention and interacrion of the owners in every element of the experience. From a 300 year old bed to 12 course dinner from South Africa's most celebrated and talented chef Chantel Dartnal in the Tiffany Room, their is little to find fault with. I applaud Marie and Chantel for the experience!
