The service here is tops. Staff is friend,y and ensure a very private and comfortable stay. The views from the rooms are amazing, everything you need for a relaxed, out of the city buzz stay. We also enjoyed the sunset game drive. Even though we did not see a variety of animals, the views and the pit stop was great.

I have travelled and stayed in many many hotels and lodges, but nothing quiet as amazing and special as oceana. If I never go to another hotel again I will be happy that I stayed at the best and will keep the memories for a lifetime.
