We recently had the pleasure of staying here for 3 nights. This is one of the most beautiful resorts in one of the most magical locations we've ever seen. The resort, the rooms, the staff, the food...everything was absolutely spectacular! It's hard to believe that such a modern, state-of-the-art facility is located in such a remote area. There is nothing that this place doesn't offer. The rooms are beautiful and the view from the bed and deck is across the river to Botswana where you can see elephants, buffalo and other wildlife. The staff couldn't be more delightful and helpful. And, the chef prepares meals that would rival any fine restaurant anywhere. We loved this spot and can't say enough good things about it.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are a bit of a walk from the main area.

We were a little concerned about the type of accommodations to expect and were so pleasantly surprised. This is definitely a 5 star hotel! Loved the comfy villas, the infinity pool at the edge of the river, the relaxing open air lounge. A gem in the middle of Africa!

These villas didn't look 5 star from the river but never judge a book by its cover as they say.A very warm friendly welcome by staff playing the local drums and singing.This place is modern but not as to take it away from the natural surroundings.The villas are right on the Chobe river,with your own private deck.The rooms are truly beautiful and so comfortable.Beautiful big bath,seperate toilet and shower too.You lookout over the river and island to see Hippos,elephants,crocodiles etc.The bird life is amazing as well.The bar fridge and nibbles is stocked well daily included in your stay.The restaurant is wonderful as are the wines,beers and spirits.Great swimming pool.Many tours to do from here as well.

Five star property and service all the way. Design is thoughtful, comfortable, chic and gorgeous. Management is professional and engaged. Nothing is too much trouble. Thanks Maryann, Ephraim, and Nerise!! Great food as well, especially the fresh fish and beef. It's Namibia, not Paris, so adjust your expectations accordingly (I'm talking to you previous TA contributors :)
Villas give the feel you're on a private yacht. Supremely comfortable and quiet. The Chobe area is full of wildlife. All outings are great, and some are pure magic. Considering all the inclusions, it is a good value. You'll likely not pay for anything extra at checkout. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All villas are great. Numbers 14 to 17 have a little more 'elbow room'.
