This is a five star game lodge called Oceana in the beautiful Eastern Cape of South Africa, my home. I spent my fiftieth birthday here and I can recommend it to anyone wanting a wonderful experience for the same price as a tiny room in a four star hotel in London.
You get a butler of your own who is at your beck and call 24/7 – the weirdest experience I have ever had. He or she will even run a bath with rose petals in it if you so wish. There is a shop with lots of beautiful things in it ranging from luxury beauty products to clothing to stunning African crafts, but there is no one working in it. You just take what you want and when you check out you let them know.
My room was so enormous it had two wardrobes, an office, a dressing table, two toilets, a shower wing, a bath wing and a sitting room as well as an enormous deck with sitting area.
