Excellent place for anyone looking to escape the madness of city life and rather take in the beauty our beautiful coastline, fauna and flora that Imvubu offers.

The sundowners pub with very nice meals and a beautiful view of the ocean is probably the best way to have a chilled afternoon. The reeds restaurant is set in the forest overlooking a...

Everything's was excellent and outstanding. It was a stated on the brochure and the website except the presence of WiFi. Modern society can't do much without WiFi, was disappointed by how poor it was.

Good overall value for the money, nice clean pool, great and very private beach/beach access. Rooms were clean and AC was cold. Overall the accommodations were on par with what you would expect at the price point. Be sure and treat yourself to a massage, they are top notch and highly affordable.
