Our favourite rooms
Each of the suites is pretty breathtaking – but for the very best views in the house, pick a Luxury or Honeymoon Space.
There’s a family-friendly alfresco pool near the lobby. Dunk yourselves in it like bathing wildebeests.
Bring camo threads to help you blend in with the setting, lots of layers (temperatures can waffle between 10°C and 30°C in a day) and keen eyes for wildlife-spotting.
The River View Suites are stair free and have bathrooms with roll-in showers (no grab rails, though). The step-free main areas are also suitable for wheelchair users.
Over-10s can come, too – but this hotel is really designed for adults. An extra bed (50 per cent of the nightly all inclusive rate) can be added to any suite on request.
The restaurant’s produce hails from local farms; cleaning and bath products are eco-friendly.
