Find solitude within an intimate retreat as secluded as the original Kalanga grain bins that nestle amongst the rocks.

Outside, the natural rock pool and sundeck is a cool contrast to the warm granites that surround the pool. Refuge can also be taken at midday in the nearby pool boma area where ice cold drinks are served.
