Thanks to the Michelin-inspired training of its head chef, five-star dining is the order of the day at Machweo. The food is best described as French with an African touch, and every meal is a homemade, gastronomic delight.

A delicious breakfast buffet is complemented by a la carte offerings from the grill, while lunches on the terrace feature a menu that is both creative and fulfilling. In the evenings, enjoy a four-course dinner accompanied by a wonderful selection of wines in delightful surroundings.

Meals are also served in the bar and around the swimming pool on sunny days. Guests in the honeymoon suites are welcome to ask for a private dinner on their terrace.

Standard Room

Machweo offers six tastefully furnished cottages and three stylishly decorated honeymoon suites. The four-poster bed is swathed in mosquito netting complementing the tasteful African décor and tranquil atmosphere. Spacious and luxurious, the en suite bathroom features a separate shower and deep bathtub - perfect for a long, relaxing soak.

The hotel-style amenities include air conditioning and a mini bar as well as satellite TV and WiFi, but all these comforts fade into the background as you sit sipping a cocktail on your private terrace, gazing at the spectacle of an African sunset.
