The room was luxurious beyond my expectations and the attention to small details will make me return again and again. The staff are always friendly and helpful, truly going the extra mile. The panoramic views made waking up every morning a little bit of heaven.

Beautiful setting and kayaks available for exploring the Goukamma River. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful, and the food was excellent. This hotel goes to extra effort to make sure it's visitors feel welcomed.
