I was looking forward to spoiling my wife at a 5 star lodge for her 50th birthday, but this establishment definitely does not deserve to display 5 stars. I dearly paid for what I though would be a memorable week-end but the lodge and the way it is run lacks the fundamentals generally present at these special (expensive) places. The staff are friendly and the food was ok (at best 4 star) but too many things confirmed this place is not worthy of a 5 star rating.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated three hours north of Johannesburg lies Fifty Seven Waterberg, a gem nestled in the heart of the Welgevonden Game Reserve and home to the Big Five in a malaria-free area. The Waterberg Biosphere Reserve was declared an official UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001. This magnificent five-star establishment is synonymous with tranquility, solitude and luxury; not to mention the surroundings of the breath taking panoramic views of the Waterberg mountains. Guests can unwind next to the infinity pool that overlooks a shallow valley and mountain stream that flows to a waterhole. The five spacious suites are placed strategically along the small hill to provide maximum privacy and intimacy. All are equipped with king-sized beds, fireplace and relaxing private deck where you can unwind while listening to the birds sing. The honeymoon suites have their own private Jacuzzi for the ultimate distressing pleasure or sipping on a glass of sparkling wine. ... more less
