“Paradise found”
Reviewed 14 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I have been to Colina Verde various time, always renting the place with groups of friends. The place is magic. It's located in the middle of nowhere, you only see nature around you. Yet, in the house, you have everything you need: great views, great beds, beautifully decorated rooms, delicious healthy food prepared by chef Joy and a lot of care by the managing couple Lucy and Graham. We went fishing one day with Graham and caught huge fish. We hiked to the local village where we visited the school and the small market. And we relaxed and played tennis (we were at Colina only for four days this time). I will certainly be back!

We loved it. Imagine the ultimate paradise home away from home. No
traffic, no stress, no busy folks anywhere. Everything was so
delightful and alluring - it felt like we stepped into a National
Geographic documentary. We have never enjoyed nature like this and
could fully relax.

The food was incredible; providing fresh coffee, delicious homemade pancakes
and healthy granola (oh my!). Sitting out on the wooden deck with a
stunning view over the Indian Ocean, eating bananas and mangos grown
in Africa - a real treat. I've never heard so many birds, and hanging
out with the dogs, Clementine and Winston, made Colina Verde feel like
a warm and comfy home. Two thumbs up for the staff: Our schedule was
inconsistent, but they made meals whenever we needed, and made sure
our laundry and rooms were clean.

Loved the heated pool, Technogym equipment, massages and spa. And how
about the deep sea fishing: Unbelievable! We caught a Giant Kingfish
of a metre, which we set free again of course.

The Internet was "safari-slow." Checking in with my office took some
time. But who cares in this place. We were too busy doing nothing;
reading; watching elephants, and numerous whales frolicking in the
waves.

Colina Verde is an extra-special-not-to-miss experience. Do not hesitate.
