Great place to wind down and relax. We had a suite with a private plunge pool and if you want to spend time alone, well worth the extra. But the main pool is still great and very quiet. Casual atmosphere, great service and food. Really enjoyed the 'special' at breakfast every morning. Beach lovely, rooms lovely, biggest bed I've ever slept in, visits from the monkeys priceless. The staff and management can't do enough for you. The only reason I marked down the sleep quality was because you can hear the sea. This is just personal taste, some may find it relaxing, others may not.
You only have the use of electricity for 6 hours a day. You may find this a con, we found it to be a pro. Its really romantic to go back to candles and oil. If you get a chance, take a trip to the nearby village and school. See real african life.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This beach destination in Africa offers the visitor that increasingly rare commodity - long stretches of pristine deserted beaches, warm blue seas and an opportunity to experience the peace and tranquility long since swamped by overcrowding in more publicized tropical resorts. The setting ensures that feeling of being on one's own tropical island. The lodge is flanked by a fresh water lagoon abutting onto a coastal forest, which spills to the edge of the unspoilt and undeveloped beach. Accommodation is in nine spacious, charming cottages constructed of natural, local materials that harmonise perfectly with the wonderful surroundings. On top of the hill we have also four suites and a family house all with stunning views. ... more less
