Sorry to say we had a terrible experience here. Called to request a late check in (9:30pm - hardly the middle of the night!) and Ray the owner was very agressive, told me that was unacceptable and we should find somewhere else to stay! Unfortunately it was too late to change our plans so I jumped in the car and...

Unfortunately, some of our girls are Government trainees - though you hope they listen to your guidance and training this is not always the case. I agree that the duvet inner looked bad but i must say that it was very very clean although it looked marked. Our checkin times are strict and we are not able to "leave a...

We stayed at Bella Manga over Christmas for 2 nights and had 2 rondevels for us and our 2 children. Wish we had booked for longer - everything was so perfect and we were incredibly well looked after. As soon as we arrived, Ray produced a detailed hand drawn map of the area with all the best local eateries and...

I stayed at Bella Manga from 2nd until the 4th December with a group of friends. The chalets were well maintained, clean spacious with everything we needed. It was a perfect and relaxing stay. Bring meat and boerewors for a lekker braai by the swimming pool!

Very pleasent and unique stay, thanks to Ray and Fiona. So beatiful nature and very quiet. The breakfast is very good and the rooms are very clean. Ray gave us good advises for our trip. We will come back when we are in Plett again 👍😀

Both owners incredibly rude to both myself and my wife, (also see other comments made by previous guests.) Nothing is ever their fault. It is their staff, the booking site or the guests who are the problem. Booking site indicated one rondavel left (see picture) which we booked on line but were informed after paying the deposit there were no...

Without a shadow of a doubt the most miserable, insular, disagreeable people we have ever had stay here in 14 years. This all started because they booked the wrong accommodation through Booking.com - they insisted that they booked a rondavel whilst in reality they paid and booked our honeymoon suite - the Lavender Room. Complaint after complaint many of which...

Excellent five night stay in the absolutely beautiful family rondavel over Xmas. Very peaceful, relaxing grounds and friendly hosts and two friendly dogs. Ray and Fiona looked after us and our 11 year old daughter from start to end, and helped us hugely with the all important Xmas Eve stocking arrangements. Also allowed our daughter to bottle feed the little...

The area Bella Manga is situated in is beautiful and it was fairly well located for where we needed to go, the surroundings, dam and birdlife were excellent. However the lodge and service left a lot to be desired. While our welcome was friendly, the unrealistic check in hours (especially for people travelling far) resulted in a rude welcome for...

We had the most amazing experience, from arrival to departure. we were greeted by Tigre & Warrior! Ray & Fiona are like family, extremely hospitable & friendly!

Ray and Fiona were the perfect hosts. Great hospitality in a lovely country setting 12km outside of Plett. Comfortable rooms and amenities. This was a business trip, would definitely return with my family.

I have visited Bella Manga several times now and recommended it to many of my BA flying friends, family and work colleagues...they have all been equally impressed and I am certain, will return. I have just had 5 perfect days there. Just me. No work, no pressure, just pure, feet up, indulgence. Waking in the morning to birdsong and sun...
