Room Details

Hlala Lapha is surrounded by trees, pools, beautiful gardens and rolling lawns with a lovely view.  It has a magical air about it in the evenings and is a very popular party or family gathering venue. It incorporates a flagstone extension under the trees with big braai/potjie and spit area and soft spots. There is also a big weber, other braai equipment and braai utensils. Hlala Lapha is fully set up for guests to cater for themselves.

Guests have exclusive use of Hlala Lapha for playing music and partying to their hearts content. Music should be played at a controlled level so as not to disturb other guests. Big sound systems are not necessary. There is an under-counter bar fridge in the lapa to put drinks in. We set up the braziers for you to use but otherwise you need to supply your own wood. These are lovely to stand around when the evening turns cold. There is a gas heater in the Lapa. We provide good quality plastic plates, beer mugs, shooter glasses, salad and snack bowls and dustbins for your convenience.  Dishwash, soap and towels are provided at the lapa basin should you need it. All bedding requirements, towels and soap are provided.

You will be placed in the Starling and Hadeda units with beds and bunkbeds in the lounges depending on numbers.  Overflow of people into the Dabchick, Swallow, Weaver, Hoopoe and Kingfisher rooms if numbers require us to do so.There is good gas braai equipment in the lapa, which is good for making breakfasts.  However, please note that departure time is strictly 10.00 am on Sundays and 9 am on Saturdays to enable us to service for incoming guests.

Lighting is perfect with spots on the cooking area that can be turned on and off.  Garden lighting can be turned on in the lapa to light up the garden in the evening.

There is a 52 inch TV screen in the lapa with all the Super Sport DSTV channels available to watch the sport of your choice. We have solar backup should their be an Eskom outage so, no interruption of sports matches. We provide ice for the initial two ice buckets on the bar but other than this you will need to supply your own.
