WOW!! From the moment we walked into the retreat we were relaxed. The lovely owners Tanya and Tony have thought of everything. We stayed here for 3 days and loved the natural surroundings, sitting on the verandah, having a spa and visiting the local area. The bed is very comfortable.

We were in search of somewhere that was quiet for a couple of days of complete rest and relaxation and found Melawondi to be ideal. It is beautifully set up, impeccably clean and in a rural setting devoid of distracting noise such as cars and planes. We did do some exploring around the region, but it was wonderful to come...
