Depending on the season we either offer complimentary roses or aromatherapy baskets with these rooms. Both command spectacular views of the water.


These rooms are set aside in a tropical garden to maximise privacy and take you back to the old romantic colonial way with king size beds covered in white crisp Egyptian cotton, all commanding great views of the dam from their respective balconies. Bathroom equipped with Jacuzzi/Spa baths and for the free at heart we offer outside showers or a bath. All equipped with mini bars, TV’s and DVD players.

In the Bali house we offer four tastefully decorated suites, two with their own fire places and all commanding great views of the dam. All have full bathrooms, but no spa baths. A central honesty bar and tea & coffee station serves these rooms. A great option is to rent the whole house for your group breakaway.

We now boast our very own chef who cooks up a storm on Friday and Saturday Nights as well as for private parties and conferences. We offer a three course set menu in our romantic Safari restaurant rounded off with Italian coffee and Belgium chocolates.

For the romantic we offer a private dinners set aside from the main restaurant with soft lighting and classical music (38 proposals and counting)


On Weekends we offer our guests a 2 hour sunset cruise on our very own launch boat “La Jennifer”. There is just something to be said about drifting silently across the water shadowed by the Majestic Magaliesburg Mountain Range.

For the more adventurous we tag along the ski-boat. Guests can also be collected from the cruise and taken on a Para-Sailing adventure.


At La Dolce Vita we believe in offering our guests a lifestyle rather than a holiday - resulting in our wide itinerary of weekend options...

Guests can enjoy a special gourmet picnic on the shores of the dam as well as a host of water sports including water skiing, tubing or riding the dragon for the more adventurous. And, as the soft glow of sunset paints the sky a palette of soft rose and apricot, you can board the launch boat and enjoy sundowners and snacks as we cruise the Dam.
