Elephant Springs Hotel & Cabanas

From R1950 per Unit

Overview

Nestled in the foothills of the scenic Waterberg mountain range lies the popular inland tourism town of Bela Bela (previously called Warmbaths) in Limpopo Province. Bela Bela (derived from Tswana and loosely translated as 'boiling-boiling') is less than an hour from Pretoria (Gauteng) and is best known for its world-renowned hot Springs at the Forever Resorts. These 52C hot mineral Springs - that gush out of the Earth at a rate of 22 000 litres of water per hour - are renowned for their healing therapeutic properties.

With its warm winters and mild climate year round, Bela Bela is increasingly becoming a favoured weekend or few-nights-away destination for people that don't want to travel too far to enjoy time out in the Waterberg. The malaria-free Waterberg area boasts an abundance of plants and indigenous trees, prolific birdlife and free roving game. Here, nature and adventure enthusiasts can experience hiking, game viewing and numerous other outdoor activities.

In the vibrant multi-cultural town of Bela Bela is Elephant Springs Hotel & Cabanas, offering value-for-money accommodation in 50 air-conditioned rooms, each with en suite bathroom. The property derives its name from the fact that elephant carcasses were discovered in the grounds surrounding the hot Springs. A time long ago, free-roaming elephants lived and flourished in the scenic area surrounding Bela Bela. Elephant Springs is within walking distance of shopping centres and flea markets. It is also directly opposite the city's prime tourist spot - the hot Springs at the Forever Resorts.

The hotel prides itself on its friendly, helpful staff. They help to enhance its character as an accessible and affordable location for corporate clients and travelling business people who use Bela Bela as a convenient base while working in the area. In addition, the hotel features a restaurant, ladies bar and a swimming pool for the exclusive use of hotel guests. With three function venues and conference facilities for up to 250 delegates, Elephant Springs is a reasonably priced option for conferences, corporate functions, launches and wedding receptions.

Guest Comments

There were cockroaches in the bathrooms.
Not user-friendly for old people. Too many stairs. Does not cater for the disabled.

- Elizabeth Makena

We had a good stay. The only put off was the room had a disgusting cigarette smoke smell which is not so great for a family room. The cigarette butts were stuck in the bathroom basin.
- Charissa Van Der Merwe

The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. I will definately come back soon.
- Pate Modisane

We had a lovely weekend stay. Only comments is that fans and lights working together should be reconsidered. Equipment (stove & fridges) fixed. The staff were really helpful and extremely friendly. I would consider staying there again if above is tended to.
