The hotel has luxurious rooms in beautiful scenic grounds, food and service is excellent. Close to the amenities of the city but in the grounds one feels far away. There are eco drives and the hotel is perfect for weddings and conferences

Was lucky to be invited to attend a wonder wedding here at the Thabo Eco. Fantastic place. My room was spacious and very comfortable with a complimentary mini bar. Also great views. The complex has a fantastic spa at which I had a great massage. The facilities were just awesome. Brilliant.
