My sister and I toured Swaziland and stayed here 3 nights. The rooms were very quaint and the bed comfy. The service in the restaurant was first class. Specially thanks to Mnana at breakfast.

We had a good experience at Hawane. The traditional make-up of things i.e. rooms, hot water making, water & sewerage disposal was an eye opener. Staff, food & place in the bush was very nice. December was also helpful in showing us around Hawane. Room for improvement include ; signage in the roads, TVs with DSTV in the rooms is the must, payment with Safaris should immediately reflect in Hawane side.

We booked at Hawane for our one year anniversary. At arrival we quickly find out that what was advertised on the website and what we got was not at all the same. We ended up not staying at the Hawane at all.The pictures are misleading and we stayed at a very nice golf estate for only R200 more. I would advise safari now to go and visit this resort and update the picture in i'ts current state. Over all not a good experience.
