Ruth’s Raves: HOTEL
Earth Lodge, Sabi Sabi, South Africa: http://www.sabisabi.com/lodges/earthlodge
WOW! This 5-star, all-inclusive lodge is a perfect blend of nature and luxury. The beautifully designed lodge is built right into the natural environment, making it nearly impossible to see from a distance. It’s sophisticated designs and beautiful architectural elements make it a very unique and luxurious experience. To top it off, the staff of the lodge was nothing short of amazing.From the Game Rangers, to the hosts, and the Chef, everyone treated us like family while providing the highest levels of service. Each night ended in an exquisite five course meal, often set in private rooms or areas within the lodge. The meals were so delicious that it rivaled the experiences that we had during the day! If you are looking to rough it, this is definitely not your place, but if you are looking for a luxurious experience that feels like home (if you live in the middle of a national park where lions could roam your lobby), this is your place. Of course I had to test the spa as well…One of the best facials I have ever received at a reasonable price (for a 5 star luxury hotel and spa).
