Such a fun relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

7 mums escaping life for a couple of days and what a blast we had at Banyanda. It is such a beautiful property, beautifully decorated with blasts of colour and lots of brilliant art. It is such a peaceful place and close to everything. We hated having to come home. I've been asked by the girls to re book for next year.
