Not the most pleasant place to stay. We had a loft chalet, and the heat in the loft area was absolutely unbearable. There are two fans in the loft space (one which was broken), but it created more noise than cool air. Sleeping there was practically impossible. Also be warned that the chalets have thatched roofs, which means lots of bugs! The amount of critters that we had to swat away… Also, the cleaning service was not up to par — basically it was just surface level cleaning, nothing beyond a wipe down. We asked them to clean spider webs multiple times and got ignored (we got our own cleaning supplies in the end). Wet dishes were packed in the cupboards and smelled funny… I expected much more, cleanliness during C-19 times is non-negotiable. Also be warned the whole resort is a golf course, so you can’t go for a walk without having to look out for flying balls. Extremely inconvenient when you have small kids to look out for. The hippo pool was cool though.

Certainly a beautifully set place with tons of entertainment on the resort. An ideal place for a family with tons of pools and many activities. Its awesome getting to watch the hippos and the close proximity to the phabeni gate. The staff are friendly and accommodating, i travelled with a boisterous 9 month old, the restaurant were so accommodating with sterilizing of bottles etc. I do feel there is room for an upgrade in the hotel rooms and the bathrooms can be redone but this is a tiny factor and partly my fault as i could have booked at a chalet. the rooms are immaculately clean, the bedding is soft and fresh and the air conditioner works more than efficiently. Close to malls for food if you want to not eat in. The poolside is fabulous and are all the staff. Support local and go on holiday to sabi even if you do not wish to go out anywhere.

Stunning resort. Our unit looked out on a branch of the Sabie River that was filled each day with hippos! Great evening show to watch the hippos exit the river and trek to their feed grounds! Units and rooms have every modern convenience. Resort is located on a golf course, less than 2 miles from shopping, and very near an entrance to Kruger National Park. I have to admit that I made a grave error in the check out date. The staff could not have been more helpful in working toward a resolution to rectify my mistake. Food in the restaurant was delicious. Every precaution during height of omicron was taken. Sabi River Sun is now one of our favourite locations.

This is a beautiful resort with plenty of activities for all, golf, five swimming pools, squash, tennis, bowls, beach volley ball, cycle and running tracks. A walk around the beautiful grounds is a must. Kids love watching the crocks and hippos on site and there is abundant bird life. Despite a few unresolved problems with the chalet the fact that chalets are well spaced allows a care free stay if you are worried about covid. Some magnificent sunsets.
