Royal Malewane, South Africa
Situated within the Thornybush Private Game Reserve, neighbouring Kruger National Park you will find the suitably sumptuous Royal Malewane.
The property has 6 private suites, which sit in harmony with their natural surroundings. Rich wooden decking, open air thatched gazebos and private plunge pools blend discreetly with the acacia thorn and lantern-bush trees. Joined only by wooden walkways, Royal Malewane’s luxurious suites have redefined the concept of solitude. Stylish beyond belief and adored by Elton John and Bono, Royal Malewane's two decadent hideaways – the Royal Suite and the Malewane Suite – are known to be the largest in Africa, offering over 210 square metres in space. Each suite, which can accommodate up to four guests in each of the two ensuite bedrooms, also boast a fully equipped kitchen, elegant and expansive living area, a vast wooden-decked veranda, a thatched gazebo (perfect for a massage with a view!) and a pool.
The property also has an exclusive-use 'Africa House', just minutes away from the main lodge, is perfect for families or a group of friends seeking pure indulgence as well as privacy. A private hideaway sleeping 12 in six ensuite bedrooms, this is authentic Africa at its absolute best! The villa has its own vehicle, ranger, tracker, chef and housekeeper - and guests can also enjoy acess to Royal Malewane's pampering Bush Spa!
A splendid thatched dining room and central open air lounge area combine stylish colonial furnishings, African tribal artefacts and exquisite Persian carpets with the breath-taking interior décor skills of Mother Nature.
After your invigorating game drive, nothing could be more soothing than a pampering session in the new Royal Malewane Spa. Possibly the most sophisticated Spa in the bush, this wildly luxurious haven is hidden among thorn trees and approached along wooden walkways. Two semi-open salas with floor mattresses, silk cushions and hanging lamps flank an ultra-chic lap pool, and are adjacent to a Roman bath area with showers and Jacuzzi. The treatment rooms, offering both indoor and outdoor massage tables, open onto the bush, while in its own separate area, a secluded open-air sala has been ideally positioned for two! The African 'safari' just doesn't get much better than this!
...And if the cuisine is not enough to whet your appetite, the safari experience certainly will! The game viewing is specifically tailored to guests’ individual wishes – you can either ride in the open landrover or go out on foot accompanied by Royal Malewane’s expert ranger and master tracker.
