Each suite is private and comprises a spacious living area, a well-appointed bathroom, a wooden viewing deck, a fireplace or air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, a mini-bar, and a TV with selected DStv channels.

Guests can dine at Emily's Restaurant, where the spirit of Africa is in every archway, every antique table, and in the collector's items that adorn every nook and cranny. Enjoy lunch by the swimming pool or dine by candlelight. Emily's uses fresh homegrown and local produce to prepare home-style menus, which include Karoo lamb rack, butter chicken samosas, and the Bali bowl.

Simon's Pizza Bar is located above Emily's Restaurant, and is designed with vintage boat engines, water-sport equipment and other found-objects decorating the walls. In the centre, is a wood-fired pizza oven that produces artisan pizzas. Enjoy signature pizzas, such as buffalo mozzarella, marinated cherry tomato and spring onion, or the Cuban-styled pulled pork, baby onions, red peppers and rocket.

Activities on offer include canoeing along the Bitou River, while enjoying the bird life and beautiful scenery, mountain biking on a variety of routes around the area, full-body massages in the comfort of your own room, an in-room dining experience, fishing on the Bitou River, and golf at various courses in the surrounding area.
