Four of our luxury rooms are in a Victorian Villa built in 1905 in the garden behind the main hotel.
The Villa is light-heartedly furnished with soft colours of beige, browns, rust and black, which gives one the feeling of Victorian splendour with a strong element of Africa.
Some beautiful Antique pieces round off this modernistic approach to decor. The Villa offers four bedrooms 2 twin-bedded, 1 queen and 1 king size, each with a unique view of either the gardens or the mountains.
The other three rooms are in the main building and make the choice of dcor obvious Art Deco. Two rooms have splendid views on the mountains and one overlook the garden.
The three rooms are twin bedded, but can be converted to king size. One of these rooms boasts a Jacuzzi bath, which is ever so popular with honeymooners.
