What a place. Absolute luxury in a gorgeous setting. The finishings and detail in the room were amazing. They thought of everything. The bed and linen as comfortable as you can get with the bathroom being stylish, tranquil and equipped with the best amenities and toiletries. The hospitality was 100% - thanks Michelle. Breakfast was perfectly cooked and well organized and presented. The surroundings are breathtaking and the peace and quiet unrivaled. I will definitely recommend it. 100% for Bovlei Valley Retreat. One night was too short!
