This was my second visit to Dugong and both my trips were excellent. To get to Dugong one needs to go by boat and this is a great experience. At our arrival the staff were singing and dancing - what a great welcome.
Our rooms were beautiful and the mozzie nets were very effective. As this is an Island one needs to understand that at a certain time at night the generators went off, but this was no concern to our group.
The food was excellent and At the last night I felt like I just can't eat more. From crayfish, fresh fish, crab cakes to excellent steaks - congratulations to the chef and his team on doing their work so well. They even made a cake to one of the guests who had his birthday.
Brian and his staff are extremely helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to let us enjoy our holiday.
The place itself is extremely beautiful and I really felt like I am in one of the most tranquil places I have ever been at. The secret is to ask the personnel to show you around and to participate in the activities.
I can write a lot more about this place, but the key message is that for a small Island, far away from big cities, etc The Dugong Beach Lodge is a must do for people who loves nature and peace. This is not a place for you if you expect late night life. For me this was exactly what I needed and I feel energized after spending a few days in heaven. I will be back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located on 30 000 hectares of pristine Marine and Wildlife territory, it provides a unique Beach & Wilderness Experience in a hidden corner of sub-tropical Africa. This diverse eco-system of wilderness and wetland, with its powder white beaches and crystal clear water is host to a magnificent array of fish, dolphin and most importantly, the nearly extinct "Atlantic Dugong" (which resembles a sea lion). Shallow and deep water reefs reveal beautiful creatures such as the great leatherback turtles, sailfish and manta ray. Deep-sea fishing of marlin and barracuda is truly spectacular and the large flocks of flamingos and pelicans are a sight to behold. ... more less
