Following an unfortunate accidental fire in July of this year, which all but completely destroyed the prestigious Ivory Suite at Sabi Sabi Selati, in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, the suite has now been rebuilt, and is open again for business. If you thought the ‘old’ suite was the epitomy of luxury and opulence, well, the new suite is even better.
A carved wooden bed dominates the room, covered in beautiful, heavy linen. Persian rugs are scattered across the floor, and antique railway memorabilia jostle for space with other equally unique antique artifacts.
The bathroom is large enough for a stand-alone chaise lounge, an oversized stone bath and a large walk-in shower. For the more adventurous, there is an outside shower, accessed by huge sliding doors.
A private patio and plunge pool complete the outside area, offering peaceful views of the surrounding bush.
If all this is not enough, guests staying here also have the services of a private Land Rover and their own ranger for their daily safaris, and they can also choose to dine in the suite if they would prefer.
