  • Went to the spa here.. Loved it. Sarah is very friendly and professional.. She knows her thing. There is a pool when you feel like a dip. Place is very serene for some quiet time.
  • You can tell from it's name, it's sitting around the famous "Out of Africa's " lady once expansive plantation. Great meals with an option of sitting outdoors too. A talented painter has his skills on display, to offer that wondering eye some preoccupation until your meals alive. Peaceful and quiet locality.
