Other kid-friendly offerings include outdoor games, such as bocce, croquet and tennis; a swimming pool complex; library; and hiking and biking trails. Parents relax at the Salamander Spa, which has 14 treatment rooms and an extensive menu of services, and together, families enjoy dining experiences at several onsite restaurants. Families also have the option to pack a lunch via Market Salamander, which provides gourmet picnic baskets to enjoy while exploring the resort’s expansive grounds.

I’ve been wanting to stay at the Salamander for a good while, and am thrilled I finally got to do so. Loved every minute of my two-day girls getaway. I was really happy with the accommodation - cozy and spacious rooms, with a modern and traditional feel. The spa and the picturesque and lush grounds were soothing to the soul. The restaurants serve tasty food, and staff across the hotel are professional, friendly and courteous to a fault! The African decor dispersed across the hotel was well appreciated, and the British touches here and there were also noticeable and appreciated. Definitely worth visiting and exploring.
