10 years after my stay at the lodge, I still treasure the experiences: the stunning scenery, contact with reserved but friendly people, and the music. One sleepless night, I heard from a distance an approaching group of men, singing and playing instruments, and eventually passing...More

Die Lodge was really amazing, staff was friendly, our room was beautiful and there is a kitchen for self-caterers. The view to the valley and the mountains was incredible and I would definately recommend the Pony trekking!

Thank you for visiting Malealea and for your wonderful review. Once you get beyond the road Malealea is indeed unique and a worthwhile destination. July/August can be cold so it is best to be prepared. We will certainly look into equipping the kitchen better and...More

This is a lovely location with a pleasant low key atmosphere and a good base for walking. We had hoped to make a multi-day horse-trek from the lodge but found the horses apparently malnourished and over worked. I do not know who is responsible for...More
