aha Casa do Sol

Kruger and surrounds, South Africa

Virgin rating

The hotel

A little piece of the Mediterranean in Africa’s safari land, this rustic yet refined retreat may be rooted in the Med (think terracotta tiles, patio dining, and pretty garden swimming pools), but beyond its architectural styling, everything’s decidedly South African. In the 500 hectare Ilanga Nature and Game Reserve, with an elephant sanctuary as one of its nearest neighbours, aha Casa do Sol Hotel & Resort is just five minutes’ drive from Hazyview’s restaurants and shops, and makes a scenic home-from-home for those exploring the sub-tropical Lowveld – with the Phabeni Gate of Kruger National Park just 20 minutes’ drive away.

We stayed here for ten nights in feb/March and I have no bad words to say about the place ! We where out on trips most of the time but they where always accommodating ! If we had early safaris they would do us breakfast packs and bring it the night before, they always asked if we where ok and needed anything , we where upgraded for free and also where given a complimentary bottle of wine and champagne as well as fruit baskets , they also decorated our bathroom on our last night ! I am a vegetarian and found the meals unique and tasty (I’m a fussy veggie to so it takes a lot for me to try something new ) but everything was amazing ! The room was always tidy and cleaned to a high standard and the areas where also clean Everything about this holiday has been amazing and I would recommend ! Read less

The positioning and atmosphere is awesome, however some windows and doors are falling apart and needs serious attention since they render mosquito nets useless. Their breakfast is not cheap yet it provides very limited options. It is not great for a week's visitor since they run out of options of what to eat.

They need to invest in good fibre...network was very bad. The place also needs a modern touch - furniture is ancient We couldn't us the pool facilities around 7pm...this was quite a bore after a whole day of sight seeing

Our stay was excellent at your hotel and we enjoyed the privacy and the quietness of the place. We were also well received by the staff and made us feel welcomed. As a couple we are definitely planning more visit to your place and we have recommended the place to most of our close friends and family members.
