As the end of the year draws closer let’s take time to reflect back on 2021 – the year in review.

We started with lockdown and most likely will end with lockdown. Fortunately, it has become second nature with adhering to rules on different levels. The Nest Hotel has maintained a highly efficient system that adapts according to the changes. Who remembers us serving meals in your room when the restaurant had to close?

When we reflect on the year in review, it is encouraging to see that some conferences still took place. We hosted a couple at The Nest Hotel, along with some weddings and a couple of milestone birthdays. Talking about birthdays, The Nest turns 88 years this November and we offered some awesome specials to share in the celebrations.

Bowls did not take a back seat and there were a number of tournaments that continued throughout the year. Stay tuned for the 2022 dates that will be uploaded on our website as soon as the dates are finalised.

‘Slow travel’ becomes a necessity where we encourage you to relax and take a slower place. Yoga sessions increased in popularity and we introduced Flow Yoga at the Hotel. Of course, on the complete opposite side of the scale were the adrenalin junkies and adventure seekers. In May this year some team members took part in the famous Oxpecker Trail Run.

New in 2021
  • Family Mountain View rooms had a bathroom upgrade
  • We welcomed the new farmers market – The Farmers Lawn
  • A couple of new events were hosted at The Nest Hotel – The Night Skies, Beginners Bird Talk, How to Tackle Trauma, Rock Art Talk – Discovering our Heritage and one exciting one still to come, Celebrating 50 years of MCC & Sparkling Wine in South Africa
  • Two new adventure activities were launched – The Vertical Rush Adventure and Leap Adventures Quad Biking
