“We really enjoyed our stay, lovely is actually the word to describe it.The honeymoon suite package was perfect. The view from our room and “private balcony” was to die for, the food was divine (complements to the chef) , the jacuzzi was all we needed after the long year, the pool was clean and refreshing and the staff was very friendly. We didn’t want to leave. Thank you so much for the memories. We will be coming back very soon.” – Kat, Johannesburg (stayed: December 2009)
