Sometimes, very rarely, you end up in a place where literally everything is perfect. You most definitely are surprised when this happens in Africa. The SPA is incredible, the food would be gourmet in Milan, the rooms are gorgeous. One experience not to forget, This is my second time here and surely not the last.
