We normally go to the Coast for our December holidays but thought we try something different and booked at Swadini Forever Resort. We enjoy camping, the outdoors, people and exploring new places. Firstly the Resort is very well kept and it has sooo much to offer! The nice pool area with music and pool games for the kids & adults!...

I had never even heard about this place but I was looking for a place to camp and found a hidden gem. I dont think I would like to be there on a busy week-end though and I dont think I would like to be involved in the entertainment side. But I found a lovely quiet and private camp site...

This place has always been one of our family favorites. Its close to home and relevant to go for a break away. Peaceful and tranquil. The rates are a little pricey now a days but it is great value for money. Worth while visiting this little gem.

I went to the resort to have something to eat early evening and was turned away by a lady at the reception. Only to find that she is lying because everyone else didn't know about her self imposed rule that doesn't permit guests to have dinner after 5pm. I was allowed back at the hotel after the owner of a...

Very neat and comfortable. Peaceful Resort, friendly staff. Good beds and linen. 2nd Room smelled of cigarette smoke - pity. Restaurant - good food, service. Value for money. Well convenience stocked store.

We have enjoyed the Swadini resort very much. The mountains and scenery of Blyderivier are breathtaking! The resort is very neat and the upgraded chalets very comfortable. The resort offers a lot of activities for young and old.

We returned to camp here after about 7 years. Things have just improved. Well maintained grounds, clean bathrooms, even soap in the soap holders. This is excellent for families with primary school kids. Stunning scenery, entertainment for the kids on site, lots to do outside.!

There is a mini-market on site which has all the basic needs including alcohol. Each apartment has a BBQ and outdoor setting. There is also a camping area if you need a cheaper solution.

“The free standing Chalets (nr 54) very quite. Higher numbers - close to the Youth Centre - they can be noisy.”

“The property is quite large to make sure you book close to the facilities, or be prepared for a drive or a 10-15m walk.”

“Try and get a chalet close to the central entertainment/pool area, otherwise it's a long walk or short drive. Otherwise bring bikes!”
