Lavish Suites

sleeps 2 people sharing
  • Naledzi and Tadulu are our two new flagship suites. These secluded luxury units with king-size bedrooms, wood-burning fireplaces, plunge pools and wraparound decks provide a truly lavish experience.

    African artworks by Thomas Kubayi and resident artist, Erinn Straughan, surprise you at every turn. There are mermaids basking in the outdoor showers and an angel overlooks the path to Tadulu. Sandblasted glass scatter stars across the floors when the sun shines in and a myriad of fish, leguwaans and turtles colour the floors. Elegantly furnished and contemporary, these suites are sure to delight every guest.
