You have to do something special for your 40th Valentine's Day together and the Orient was just perfect! This is very possibly our favourite boutique hotel in SA. The staff are just amazing! The entire hotel is decorated in a Moroccan style and is stuffed with exquisite artworks. There is even a Tienie Pritchard gallery that is a must see. There's no Reception or check in - they know who you are and you're treated as if you were the most important guest that has ever stayed with them, even if you didn't arrive by helicopter! The hotel and it's gardens are set in the Francolin Conservancy so you can go for a stroll in the bush to build up an appetite for Chantell's culinary masterpieces. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough! 👍👍👍👍👍
Im sure many a visitor has given splendid reviews but i cant help but to add another:.... i was in a wheelchair and was i treated with dignity and respect right from the start.... not to speak about the food, Mari, staff, rooms, detail etc.
An absolutely beautiful hotel, and an amazing experience. Restaurant Mosaic is, in my opinion, the best in the country, one of the best in the world. I could not find a single flaw with our stay. The staff were absolutely brilliant, ever attentive when required and so fun and friendly. If you are coming to the restaurant, then you absolutely must stay at the hotel, it is worth every cent.
We celebrated my partner's birthday at The Orient and it was spectacular in every way. The attention to detail in the room, the friendly and knowledgeable staff, the AMAZING breakfast - everything was just right. Of course dinner at Mosaic Restaurant was spectacular as expected. This is easily my most memorable evening / night of 2017. I cannot wait for another occasion to return.
My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at The Orient recently. The stay and the dinner at their Restaurant Mozaic was nothing less than perfect. From the greeting, at our car upon arrival by the porter, everything was perfectly executed against a clear agenda of luxury, without it ever feeling pretentious our overbearing. Mari and her team give exquisite attention to every detail, yet created and maintain a comfortable atmosphere where nothing is out of place. We will certainly be back, hopefully more than once.
