Beautiful setting with your own little piece of heaven. Lovely little chalets, offering both privacy and comfort, and meeting all your needs. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the units kept nice and clean.

Lovely well informed and accessible staff. More than adequate accommodation and well kept. Housekeeping staff do a great job and smiles all around. Access security strict, so we felt pretty safe and allround secure. Had a wonderful treatment at the on-site beauty boutique, real professional value for money. Monkeys a little nuisance, but not too ba. No complaints, and had...

We loved the privacy and seclusion of our double chalet- the lodge was a wonderful escape from reality and the chaos of the outside world. Our chalet was very well appointed, the deck and braai area were just what we needed. The lodge totally exceeded our expectations and was excellent value for money. It was the new years public holidays...

We stayed in the honeymoon suites which has an awesome view. The suite exceeded our expectations and it was a lovely dwelling place. To bad that Meer-e-nsee doesn't have a lot to offer as it is a pleasure to stay at Imvubu lodge.

Booked on Lekker Slaap, the rooms we booked there was not what we got, the pictures on Lekker Slaap was the honeymoon suite. We did not know and expected a sea view, there was no juccuzi in sight. In spite of our first disappointment, we had a nice clean standard room, friendly service and the restaurant's food was outstanding. All...

The lodge is beautiful, rooms are clean. I like the chalets because they are very private and quiet.....the bar is too small and always understaffed....when I got to the bar it was empty but all the tables were booked....

Imvubu was a discovery! you felt far removed from everything except the ocean, yet within walking distance of the shops and not too far from the waterfront hustle of nightlife. Very clean private self catering wooden chalets with stunning bar restaurant and on lake breakfast venue. Service bit slow - but what the heck, you just sit back and enjoy....

My family and I stayed a weekend here, it was a memorable stay. It's easily accessible and located right next to the beach, in fact a beach is 5 minutes walk or less and visible in some parts of the lodge, The rooms are well maintained and very clean maybe it's a compensation for the price you have to pay...
