Fantastic stay with beautiful people, so good that we had to come back a second time. The most special hotel out of the 21 hotels we tried in SA.

From the magical location to the cosy and beautiful house; the personally catered breakfast and the big smiling faces. Zarose is one of the best experiences that we have had (and we have had our fair share of travel).
