This definitely looks like the best place to stay in Sodwana Bay as after driving through quite a shabby main street it was good to enter the private gates to a nice looking resort. Our double chalet was nice with a good balcony but lacking in seats for relaxation. The lodge boasts a expansive food menu but the quality was poor and mealtimes were disappointing. As non-divers there was little to do. We went on a whale watching tour organised by the lodge and while sitings were good the service was poor - regular changes in departure time to accommodate divers and no information provided on the trip. In short, unless you want to dive, stay away and visit St Lucia instead.
