If you have a family, or just want to take a romantic trip for two, this is the perfect getaway. We stayed in the self-catering chalets, it was absolutely wonderful. It was private and had everything we needed, including the braai facilities. The pools were excellent. I especially enjoyed the warm baths. We also enjoyed paint balling and go carting....

What a special place for families to relax. All the boxes were ticked. From supertubes for the kids to relaxing hot springs for the adults. We stayed in the rondawels which were clean,well maintained and comfortable.

What a nice place to have a quick break away. Close enough to drive yet far enough to get away. Swimming pools are amazing. Hydro and spa is luxurious. Very friendly staff and food is good value for money. Kids love the place! Will be back
