We are regular visitors at the Drak Sun Resort. Standard of food, service and facilities is exceptional. Richard and Victus always offer a warm welcome and can never do enough for guests. Dining Room staff are friendly and efficient, always a smile and no request is too much.

No, there is no space on the balcony to braai, I don’t think you are allowed to. There is braai facilities not far from the units, outside.

"All rooms are great! Perhaps rooms at the far end would be quieter as kids do run up and down the passages screaming and playing."
"Ask for view over the dam."
"Ask for a mountain facing room"
"Ask for a room with mountain views"
"Most rooms have a view of the lake and surrounding mountains. Better views from the top floors though."
