One year exactly has passed!

I've been slow to non existent on the blog this whole year and in fact haven't posted since Aug 11 last year 2013
Now its time to gear up and let you know what's happening at The Armagh Country Lodge Spa
and Rafters Restaurant.  A lot has happened really. 

We are in full swing with Vuyo,  returning as our General Manager in February.  Since he arrived there has been a new bright atmosphere in the Guest House;  a positive energy which has resulted in a truly wonderful Low Season.  Overseas people still came throughout more of the Eastern Cape week-enders are still coming to us on the Special packages that we offer;  it has been really good.
We have also been busy with many small cosmetic improvements.  The addition of a cold store which has been a dream for some time has now become a reality! and this is really such a pleasure
from a storage aspect.

We have seen Spa Therapists come and go as their Contracts are short and "variety is the spice" after all!  Presently we have really good Therapists -  two through this Low Season has really meant that our "Couples Treatments@  have been a triumph!  

To be continued with some photos tomorrow Tues 19 August 2014

Happy Birthday to The Armagh!

The Armagh Country Lodge & Spa is 19 years old today.. We cleared the land, built the Guest House, and  planted the Buffalo lawn strand by strand, and set saplings into deep well nourished holes -  150 trees at least, which have grown very big with thick trunks!! In excess of 15,000 guests' have gone through our doors and slept in our beds! 
We are proud of what we have achieved, and of our Staff who make it all happen, with their happy smiles and hard work;  BUT most of all to the Guests from all over the world who have given us their support. 
Thank you to those who keep coming back.
Rest assured there's always a huge welcome at The Armagh !!

Suddenly Tommy, the tortoise,  was here - after the rain !  He just showed up right by the entrance to the Spa.
