We came to the The Residence for some luxury after horseriding across the Kalahari and fly camping for a couple of weeks. Seriously, the place glowing with chandeliers and a log fire was a like stepping into a mirage.
The key to The Residence is flawless service and nothing is too much trouble. From the moment you arrive and are offered a glass of cold champagne you innately understand you are in good hands.
After a long, hot bath to wash off all the dust, we loved the suite so much that we decided to cocoon ourselves in the big fluffy robes and order in some very good room service. Plenty of options there for vegetarians for a change and the wine list was excellent.
Breakfast is set in an elegant and light room overlooking the pretty garden and pool and there is plenty of it (including champagne again if you want it!). You can also order a cooked breakfast- I recommend the truffled scrambled eggs- and all served with a smile.
Our one night was not enough to experience the full services of this wonderful boutique hotel and our next visit will be longer we guarantee.
Thank you to all the staff!More
