Upon arrival we were greeted by the friendliest staff, Jacques, Cherise and Marcel. The hotel is beautiful and modern, the décor is tasteful, and comfortable. The fireplace at night is such a moodsetter, and creates a lovely warm ambiance. The food was out of the books, Chef Denzel did not disappoint. Beautiful, tasty food, 3 courses every evening. For the children he made just what their heart desired, and they absolutely loved it. Breakfast was a feast on its own – cold plates, followed by your choice of hot breakfast. The rooms are big, luxurious and have spectacular views. It is one of the few places in South Africa where you wake up to a view of the ocean and giraffe. Bucket list views. Cherise and Jacques (management team) went out of their way to ensure that our stay was comfortable, and very memorable. Marcel – oh what a treat he was. From the moment you arrive, you just know that you are going to like him, and that he will be around every corner to ensure that your stay is as amazing as it could be. He was friendly, helpful, and truly amazing with the children – they absolutely loved him, and could not wait to get to breakfast to see Marcel, or to get back to the hotel to tell him about their day. Such an incredible addition to our Intle experience. Our expectations were greatly exceeded, and Intle has definitely become one of our favourites. The Intle staff managed to become like family within a few days. I will highly recommend anyone visiting the Jeffreys Bay area to visit them.

WOW WOW WOW!! What a hidden gem this is, from the minute we stopped to park our vehicle the hospitality greeted us at the front door with so much warmth. The welcome drinks at the front desk, PERFECT! THE FOOD.....OOOOOO. The food at INTLE BOUTIQUE HOTEL is unique yet simple but is nothing short of amazingly delicious and made with so much love you can literally taste it. We enjoyed our stay in the calm with the most beautiful surroundings of valleys, trees and of course the wild life. A dream come true if you need to just break away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city life. Relaxation on another level. We will definitely be back there very soon!!!!

Intle is positioned for the perfect weekend getaway. The location on top of a mountain has bay and mountain views. The chef is amazing and the service is impeccable. We hiked and also booked the eco-drive where we drank sparkling wine among a giraffe herd. I highly recommend. Intle.

The service and staff were amazing. The food was excellent. The game drive was wonderful and insightful. If you need a break and don't want to travel far this is the place to come to. For our first family holiday since lockdown this was an incredible and we made some special memories.

Very beautiful hotel with breathtaking views. The location is just so relaxing. We had an amazing time there with our kids. The staff was amazing and they went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and happy. They also watched our kids to give us time to eat. The food!!! Oooh my goodness it was all spectacular! From breakfast to dinner. Wow! What an amazing menu they have. I would definitely recommend coming to this hidden Gem.

We spent one night at Intle Game Lodge, a very nice place with own giraffes and buffaloes, nicely located with a great view. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The dinner was very tasty and well presented. The room was spacious with a beautiful balcony. The bathroom could deserve a little touch up.

Wife and I stayed for 1 night only in the Presidential Suite. Weather was not great with rain, so were unable to do most activities, swim etc, which was a pity. We did manage to take one shortish walk, but did not make it as far as the Viewing Deck due to the rain. Service was very good overall, room was decent, but again could not enjoy outside area due to the weather that also ruined the view for most of the time we were there. Food was also good, but portions could have been larger for mains in particular. We enjoyed a romantic dinner in front of the fire that was probably the highlight of the experience in the end.
