The largest (and one of the more affordable) of Phinda lodges, Mountain lodge never feels too big. They do a great job of creating a memorable experience. They seemed to have a lot of vehicles as we ended up with our own during 2 nights we spent there and other families of 4 or 5 seemed to as well. While this may have been the result of others having larger groups we were thrilled to be on our agenda with our agenda and with fabulous a guide and tracker (thanks Toby and Joel) who helped us see so much. They also did a great job providing different environments for the meals - one night in the restaurant and one night in a candle-lit outdoor Boma. We love doing cooking classes while we travel and the chef was wonderful, providing us with a cooking demo and sharing some classical local dishes.
Its a great place for families as they have a large swimming pool (though it was too cold to swim in when we were there) and a selection of games in the lounge. They also have connected family rooms though we did not request these and had 2 individual suites. Rooms are all a bit different with some a bit more private than others though it felt like they could use some minor maintenance to keep them at the impeccable level of other lodges.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- With wraparound views of the ancient Ubombo mountain range, Mountain Lodge balances itself majestically above its panoramic surroundings. The 24 suites scattered along the mountainside offer complete privacy and luxury. There's no end to the choice of taking in the view - spacious verandas with private plunge pools and layered guest areas each provide their own magnificent outlook. Delicious Pan African meals are enjoyed in the dramatic stone and reed boma, lit by the warm glow of dozens of candles and lanterns. ... more less
