Our four nights in Tuningi were unforgettable. The lodge is stunning in every detail. Beautiful and super-comfortable guest room, with no detail unforgotten, including an open fire lit during dinner so that you came home to a cosy room to go to bed (night -time in August is chilly). The hospitality is exceptional - our guest manager was wonderful, I...
