My wife and I were lucky enough to return to Ngala Lodge in February for our second 7 night stay. To put it simply we just love it and pretty much everything about it. This time around we stayed in the Manor Suite 12 and it was perfect. The bed was extremely comfortable and the lounge area was ideal for a late afternoon aperitif....very necessary after a day lazing in the Gambian sunshine. It had a great view down to the ocean and even though the day time temperatures were in the mid 30's it remained cool with the air con never being needed. Unless you are a jacuzzi person and want your own personal tub (in which case book an Atlantic Suite) the Manor is ideal.
The gardens are beautiful and dotted with sun beds, which even when the hotel is full as it was when we were there, were plentiful and surrounded by plenty of personal space.
The restaurant delivers good quality food in delightful surroundings and offers the option of exterior or indoor dining. Whatever you decide you will be looked after by friendly, attentive people who take every care to ensure that you enjoy your holiday.
Ngala Lodge management and staff deliver a superior holiday experience for sure. If you are looking for relaxation, a stress free break, great weather, no time difference and a reasonably short travel time then this is the place for you.
