    This hotel is magical! The staff is always kind and helpful, facilities perfect and the food was of very good compared to what I have experienced in other parts of the country. I stayed there for 4 days, and it was amazing!

    It's not really things I didn't like, it's more small improvements that could be made: the (free) bicycles need a little bit of maintenance and one of the lounge chairs needs to be repaired. Also, the 5% for credit card transaction fee is a bit high, I feel.

    Incredible views, unique room decor, pool location, dinner chef menu, staff was very kind, two cute kitty’s to say hello to every morning. A lot of these reviews complain about the road to get here. If you survived safari for a few days- this road is nothing. And how cool to be somewhere so beautiful, in the middle of nowhere.

    WiFi was spotty in the room. Worked well in reception/lounge/restaurant area.
