We spent two nights at lemongrass lodge in late July.....As many people have mentioned, Philippa is an excellent host , I sent over 20 emails asking many questions before I arrived , and every time she responded promptly . I expected so much to meet this lovely host before the trip. I am so glad that we chose to stay in Beau Vallon, a beautiful and quiet bay. In the beginning , we had trouble figuring out the exact location, a guy was so nice to stop his car and lent us his phone to call Philippa , he was still worried that we could not find our way , he actually talked to Philippa again, made sure he knew where the lodge was and asked us to follow him, we got a really nice impression of the local people~~~
We were welcomed by a lady and in the afternoon, we got to meet Philippa's sister , she is extremely lovely and helpful too ~~~ The room and the toilet were spacious , and towels were changed every day , bed was made whenever we came back.... We stayed in the room upstair and we got to use the living room as well as the kitchen. Everything is clean and well maintained.
Stella , Philippa's mom , prepared breakfast for us and we had it in the verandah overlooking the bay , and there were fresh fruits from the garden every morning. She introduced us to her favourite beaches and treks . There was a food fair one night with stalls selling creole dishes like grilled fish, coconut, octopus salad , curries etc , all were good treats at low prices ...
There are heaps of places where you can find spacious rooms , but what I miss the most is warm hospitality ~~~ This is definitely the place you should stay if you are in Beau Vallon
The only sad thing is that we didn't get a chance to see Philippa because we returned home late every night ~~~ Thank you so much , Philippa, Stella, little sister and your wonderful staff
