some improvement can be done within the kitchen. the food was cold and the lamb shank was old (and not juicy). Improvement can be done with the time it takes to bring food. I would also appreciate that you have lactose free milk (I am not sure if our travel agent brought this message forward)

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Palala Boutique Game Lodge and Spa. We also received your GuestRevu rating with a 90% overall scoring and are surprised to see the different ratings on various review platforms. The industry standard time for the preparation of a main course is 20 minutes. Our management team has investigated the points you raised on your meal waiting times, as all service times are recorded. The 15-minute wait time between your bread service and your main course is well within the preparation time for a delicious, freshly served dish, as our meals are meticulously prepared to perfection. Our Manager on Duty, Richard, checked on your table continuously during your meal and only positive feedback were given. If you found the Lamb Shank to be anything other than mouth-watering, please let our team know on your next visit, as they would gladly have amended the dish to your specifications to ensure your 100% satisfaction. Regarding your dietary needs, we are committed to catering to various dietary restrictions. It’s a surprise that you mention the lactose free milk in your review, as we did offer soya milk as an alternative but understand from the Restaurant Manager, David, that you friendly declined the offer made. Our team is renowned for their dedication to customer service, and you are sure to receive only royal treatment on your next visit to Palala Boutique Game Lodge and Spa.

The food was excellent (menu has been refreshed), the spa is out-of-this world good, and the general facilities are clean, comfortable and well-decorated. The whole staff are attentive, friendly and always on the ball. Great place to get away from it all and be pampered.

Excellent service from all staff members, good quality of food, and a marvellously decorated place that catches the eye with awe. Although the place may allow children but there aren’t any activities to entertain them.
