Standard Rooms


Shiluvari has 7 standard rooms, all overlooking the water inlet on the Northern side of the Albasini peninsula. All rooms have an en-suite bathroom with either bath or shower, overhead fans, mosquito netting, clock radios, lounge area and tea and coffee facilities. all rooms have their own unique character and feel, with local art and craft bone by the local elim artists. From the wooden carved headboards through to the Mashamba basins, each room aims to showcase the best of local talent. Finishings such as feather duvets and parcale cotton linen complete the extra touch...
Each room can sleep 2 persons, in either single or sharing occupancy, however children under the age of 12 can share with adults on the bankie bed in the lounge area...These rooms are not suited for 3 adults sharing though. For this we would recommend the interleading cottages or Mukhondeni family suite.
