All have air-conditioning, ceiling fans, bar fridges, en-suite bathrooms, verandahs and private entrances. All have televisions (except for the two budget rooms). The rooms and the charming, thatched farmhouse are shaded by magnificent trees and have breathtaking views down the valley. The popular garden suites and hillside suites all have hammocks/daybeds and outside showers.

Outstanding breakfasts, lunches, light meals and table d’hôte dining, seven days a week. Extensive choices including child, vegan and African options. Welcoming licensed bar. Complimentary WiFi Internet throughout.
