Our favourite rooms
Of Imani’s seven suites, our favourite is number seven: it’s upstairs and very spacious. Both the bedroom and living room are large, and there’s an open fireplace to lounge before. The best views of the surrounding countryside are from the elegant roll-top bath.
The hotel has two small unheated pools.
If you’re a city slicker who’s always dreamt of packing it all in and running off to become a shepherd or shepherdess, now’s your chance to try it: pack your sturdiest boots and walk the hotel’s 13 hectares of land until you track down the farm’s very own flock of sheep.
Common areas and one of the Double Rooms are wheelchair accessible.
Extra beds and cots (free for under-2s; €25 for under-12s) can be added to rooms subject to availability.
