My fiancé and I stayed here for three nights in early May of 2017, and loved it. Small, quiet, super clean, and very helpful and friendly staff! Turn down service with new desserts on the bed or nightstand each night. Would definitely go back. Oh and the view, can't forget the view, amazing!!

World class. No complaints. Fabulous service and fabulous place! Great room and food. Faanie and waheeda were great and went the extra mile. The location was wonderful and rooms were stylish and simplistic. Great for sunse walks, couples and families. Well done!

Room Tip: Wonderful and well styled. Free mini-bar snack was a welcomed surprise

This was one of the best hotel experiences of my life, and I'm so thrilled that we found it! If we ever find ourselves in South Africa again, we'll be back in a heartbeat. This hotel is fantastic – world class, truly.

The people are incredibly warm and friendly while being both professional and kind. I wish I could remember names, but literally everyone – from staff to management – was a gem. I wish I could hug them all.

The hotel itself is a stunner–the design is spacious and modern and inviting, and the view is unparalleled. The rooms are breathtaking: large, well-appointed, and very clean. The bed was huge and comfortable. The icing on the cake is that a delicious breakfast and all drinks are included in the price. The value for the money is excellent. Everything is high-end, including the service.

One complaint: since the WiFi in our room didn't really work, we frequently found ourselves in the lovely common area. On a Friday night, a woman was drunkenly berating a business colleague at great length over the phone, which made it impossible to enjoy the area or use the WiFi. And then the next day, she and her colleagues (perhaps including the recently berated one!) took over the entire common room to conduct a business meeting... on a Saturday.... while other guests like us were trying to enjoy the day. This seems like something to discourage, instead of serving them snack platters. One bad apple, as they say.

One other minor thing – when we pulled up late at night in the dark, since the hotel is in a residential area, it wasn't at all obvious to us when we found it. Some kind of small light on the sign would be very helpful. We were kind of wandering around for a while trying to determine where the entrance was.

But those are digressions. Overall – this is a fantastic place. I can't recommend it enough! I hope to go back. And I'd be willing to bet that their other properties are top notch, too. Best of the best.

A wonderfull place, lovely welcome and the view across the beach is breathtaking. Our rooms was spacious and calming, beautifully positioned to have a stunning view. Extremely relaxing and rejuvenating. The staff were lovely and really helpful, booking restaurants and giving directions. The complementary bar was lovely for a gin & tonic at sundown. We loved every minute and wished we had stayed longer.

Room Tip: Premium rooms have really stunning views
