Each unique suite is named after the indigenous bush that surrounds it. The suite lounges all have large sliding glass doors that open up into the bush and make the suite one with nature, upon request.  The suites are connected to the main lodge by walkways which wind through the bush. Superb attention to detail and highly personalized service make for a memorable stay.
