We loved our stay here - the accomodation was beautiful ,nestled away and private, with beautiful trees and plants surrounding us. Highly recommend the room that comes with the infrared sauna and spa, "the tower", it was magic! Breakfast was great too.

The cottage everything we needed for our 3 night stay. The breakfast was very good. The Jacuzzi was large and clean. The door to the back opened up to a forest which was beautiful. The fireplace was a nice touch. The TV, cable and DVD were very adequate. The coffee machine and the coffe was very good.

Stayed at linden gardens in March earlier this year and could not fault the place! The room was a two story villa with a generous spa bath, a large tv and lush surroundings. An ideal place for couples to relax and unwind and the scenery was beautiful! Can't wait to come back.

I've stayed here for four nights over the past year or so. I really can't sing it's praises enough. Very private, very discreet. Staff are only there if you need them and they're helpful & friendly. Everything is hassle free and cooked breakfast to your door at a time of your choosing really sets this place apart. Check-in/check-out is trivially... More

Perfect place to relax and recharge. Linden Gardens was easy to find and as soon as we walked into the room we were blown away. Everything was clean and modern. It is a short drive to Olinda if you want to get something to eat or there was a fridge and microwave in the room so you can take things... More

We loved our weekend spent here. The service was great and breakfast was delicious. Our room had everything we needed and we loved the decor. Spa is in a great position and worth the extra money. Also recommend ordering the cheese platter, it was yummy!
