In more detail

The Grand Chateau wing hosts the majority of the suites, each carefully dressed in boutique European style. Think Ottoman benches, dark-wood cabinetry and plush furnishings. All the mod-cons are also present, from WiFi to cable TV. For some extra space, look to the Courtyard Suites where hand-painted accents mix with high corniced ceilings, or consider the Villa Moji. This standalone two-bedroom offering even features its own swimming pool.

The indulgences continue with the dining options. For casual classics served al-fresco, head to the Manor House Bistro, where you can take high tea or snack on the likes of tomato tarts and salmon eggs benedict. Then, for a fine-dining extravaganza, look to Amuse-Bouche for everything from springbok carpaccio and pumpkin gnocchi to slow-cooked pork belly and milk-tart desserts. There’s even a private tasting room attached, along with a champagne bar.

Lastly, to round off the facilities, there’s an excellent spa. Taking its design notes from Bali, you can expect Asian-inspired treatments to be presented among an exquisite bamboo forest garden. Here, you’ll find a heated plunge pool, spa bath and plenty of pod swing chairs. Then, in the private rooms, you can expect to enjoy everything from facials body exfoliations to Swedish and Indian massages.
