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

A relaxing stop over en route to the Low Veld and Kruger National Park. Adequate accommodation. The warm baths a must. Birding was great and a affordable breakfast was served at the warm baths restaurant.
