A good base in Hazyview

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Sept 2023
We stayed in one of the chalets at Sanbonani Hotel Resort for a week. Our chalet was large and comfortable within a well-maintained and secure estate. At times of load-shedding, there was limited emergency lighting in the chalet but the main hotel building had its own backup power so remained fully functional. We were using the Resort as a base for visiting Kruger National Park; it was very convenient for this as it is one of the nearest resorts to the Phabeni Gate (c. 10 min. drive). The chalet itself overlooked the Sabie River where one can walk (at one's own risk, taking heed of the croc/hippo warnings) - this area was good for birding. As we were out for most daylight hours, we did not use the self-catering or braai facilities much but the level of equipment is quite good. The restaurant was pleasant and the meals of good quality although the menu is rather limited and very meat-based. The nice Sunday night buffet provided some variety and was accompanied by an excellent drumming and dancing troupe. All the staff we encountered were very helpful and pleasant. The resort has some good facilities including the pool and floodlit tennis courts as well as the spa.

One of the best Hotels Resorts that I had been to during my visit to Kruger National Park.
This resort is close to the shopping area and the Pabeni gate. The concierge also helps to book u tickets to the park and other activities at discounted rates.

Room tip: The pool was very cold on a very hot summer . Over all a very excellent place to be.

Excellent lodge near Kruger NP. We stayed three nights with G Adventures family tour. Excellent room for family. Attractive facility and grounds. Buffet meals very good. Early morning breakfasts and sumptuous bag lunches provided before sunrise game drives. Highly recommended.

Room not well appointed. No electrical point at mirror where you can sit to blow-dry hair, apply makeup etc. Thank goodness that I always carry an electrical extension cord with me.

Staff is very friendly and helpful. And the food is to die for.

A beautiful and well-maintained resort. Friendly staff and a great place to sightsee from as a base. The chalets are fabulous and I enjoyed going walkabout in the resort. We stayed for the Weekend and then did a road trip to Graskop (The Gorge Lift).

Stayed in two bedroom, 2 bathroom chalet - shower & bath. Very clean, well maintained, grounds well kept. Restaurant also provides take aways. Staff very friendly and helpful. Its only downside was that they made no effort to provide guests with assistance during heavy load shedding, only providing two candles in the chalet with the entire week's stay.
