Fodor's Review

Translated from Russian as "little hideaway" this eight-bedroom boutique lodge is less than a mile from Umhlanga village and one block from the sea. Each of the individually decorated rooms offers a different sensory experience—its own specific body-product fragrance, mood CD, candy, etc.—and the three rooms on the top level have beautiful ocean views. Tea and coffee stations (with cappuccino machines and fresh biscotti) and an honesty bar can be found in each room.

Delicious breakfasts are made to order, and, although this is the only meal offered, extra muffins and fruit are left out for guests during the day. Lunch or dinner can be ordered in from area eateries. Staff will gladly recommend and book restaurants and tours and the on-site spa offers international skin care and body treatments.
