About Shangri-La Country Hotel
The rediscovered jewel hiding against the verdant backdrop of the Waterberg is a little piece of heaven in every word. The “Place of Eternal Youth” is a romantic and secluded paradise and has served Limpopo as a sanctuary of peace and tranquility for over two decades.
Upon entering the premises, you are met with an enchanting driveway that is covered by a canopy of trees. Walking to reception, you discover why the hotel is called ‘Shangri-La’, as your mind is calmed by the sound of a small waterfall. The pathway to reception has become a paradise of tropical palm trees and lush greens revealing the majestic wooden deck leading from the main building into the tree tops above. The prolific bird life creates an unforgettable atmosphere as you step onto the stunning promenade.
The famed arches of the patio have been closed in with wood and glass doors leading to the unique reception that welcomes guests to the new look establishment.
