The Rooms
Luxury Cottage

Lined along a contour, deep in the middle of the forest and secluded for maximum privacy and a natural ‘living in nature’ feel, all our 9 spacious and en-suite, Luxury Cottages are absolutely resplendent in warm glows and soft shades emanating from the surrounding forest and the trickling tropical sun rays.

Constructed of local brick and grass thatched for an authentic African feel, their full length/full width sliding glass door frontage allows for amazing views of the forest flora, just beyond the massive frontal deck/veranda, right from your bed. Two supersized windows from both sides all together let in massive amounts of natural light while a high ridge natural thatched roof guarantees the room is never too hot or too cold.

Each room comes complete with either a 7ft long King Sized Bed or 2 Double Sized Beds pushed against the back wall between lovely African design bedside lamps. All beds are fitted with mosquito nets although mosquitoes are not very prevalent in the cold forest climate. Other room amenities include an electronic safes, a classic wardrobe, two comfortable lounge style arm chairs, a natural-log coffee table, reading lamp and a luggage rack.

But by far, their most outstanding feature is the spacious ivory colored bathroom with a big bathing cubicle, stylish throne and an artistic, wooden, hand wash basin with hot and cold water. The entire area also has more of the large windows letting in natural light as well as affording more views of the surrounding forests environment. Bathroom amenities include crisp white bathrobes, bath and hand towels, bathroom slippers, refreshing and nicely scented shower gels, hair gels, hand and body lotions as well as bottled mineral water.

Beautiful and artistic wall hangings, soft colored full length drapes on locally made rails as well as soft hand woven jute and wool rugs adorning the classic wooden floor finish this 30m² suite secluded in its corner of the forest for maximum privacy and comfort.
