Verified reviewexcellent

We chose Old Joe's Kaia for our wedding ceremony and reception being close to family and friends. The venue, decor, ambience and attention to detail were all stunning and exceeded our expectations. The food is suburb, mostly using local sources for their ingredients and the presentation of each course was unique and resembled what you would find at an 5 star resort hotel in a tropical location. All of this nestled in the most enchanting valley with views from every point, all added up to make our wedding occasion the most memorable!

Auf unser Fahrt von Johannesburg zum Krüger Park waren wir zwei Tage bei Old Joe's Kaia Lodge. Die netten Eigentümmer Mariam und Paul waren sehr bemüht um unser Wohlbefinden. Nicht nur die Unterkunft sondern auch die Küche ist excellent. Die Sicht von der Terrasse mit dem wunderschönen Blick auf die Berge ist unvergesslich. Wir können es nur empfehlen. Wir werden bestimmt wieder dort hinfahren.
