The four private, luxury suites with stunning mountain views, the six semi-luxury guest rooms and five self-catering units all combine natural materials with a modern look, without sacrificing comfort. This has resulted in large stone-based beds with mahogany or bark headboards, slate or stone floors (some areas fashioned with pebbles collected along the Blyde banks) adorned with kelims or reed mats, and lofty ceilings (some thatched) with large fans (though all rooms have air-conditioning ).
Handmade quilts, white veiled bed canopies and dusky-colored walls contribute to an ambiance that is both cozy and exotic. Bathrooms are en-suite. Doors open toward the garden, many offering sublime mountain views.
Breakfasts feature a continental buffet of local produce as well as a hot English breakfast. Every night a delicious three-course meal, often featuring local dishes created by superb chef Maria Mokwena is served on the sweeping terrace looking out toward the canyon.
We are very excited about our new addition, Coffee@Blyde which offers hearty breakfasts, lovely light meals and delicious treats as well as a big garden for the kids to play in.
