A real Paradise with the best views of the Zambezi

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 Feb 2022
The place is so beautiful, once you check in you think you are in a different world altogether. WE enjoyed the sunrise as we looked into the Lake and the sunset was just as amazing. I felt the place was quite the right place to unwind and rest. The rooms were fair simple and habitable, the breakfast was good but the other meals lacked variety as lunch and dinner were just almost the same, there is need to change around the meals considering that once you are in there with the ambience you do not feel like leaving the place. We had a great time by the pool next to our lakeview rooms. I was disappointed with the cocktails that we ordered as they seemed to be more water that the alcohol and mix.

Above all the stay was short and great
Date of stay: February 2022
Room Tip: Lakeview rooms have the best views

It is a lovely location to take some time out. The staff was friendly the food was very tasty and fresh. We
had a room with the view of the lake and close to the guest pool which was perfect.
The bath/shower in our room might do with a few touch ups (did not inform management).
Definitely going back

My husband and I plus our 3 kids enjoyed our stay here.

The rooms could do with an upgrade - everything works but they feel a bit dated.

The scenery is lovely - beautiful location. We really enjoyed use of the guests only pool.

Breakfast was excellent - large variety of food to choose from. Our only complaint was that dinner took too long on the 3 nights we ate there. The food took over an hour to arrive each day. However, when it eventually arrived it was always great, well prepared and tasty.

Room tip: We had room 18 and 19 - good view and close to the residents-only pool

Stayed for a weekend with family and the place is nice with great pools, nice view of the lake, nice greens, good food especially breakfast and the dinner braai buffet. However, the rooms need a bit of a face lift, the aircon is old and noisy, the TVs didn't work and no proper reason was given. Overall, a good place to relax from.

Service levels could be better, amenities like fishing, small store to spend money and generally more attention to guests on terms of available services.

Grant, thankyou for the follow up and willingness to discuss our feedback.

My husband and I fairly enjoyed our short holiday. I really enjoyed our the food i.e the breakfast and supper the day we arrived. The rooms are very nice with a nice view. Unfortunately, there was no soap or small toothpaste in the bathroom. Being a place with mosquitoes, repellant should be available in the rooms.
