We spent 4 nights here. We truly were not ready to leave.
During our stay, we felt As if we were the most important guests at the resort. Michelle and her staff were on top of their game.
We were always greeted by name. They showed an interest in us. They remembered our dining preferences. They provided suggestions in arranging our days and evenings. They went out of their way to pamper us. They allowed us to relax and enjoy our stay.
The food was superb. I was amazed at he multi-course meals and the amazing creativity of the chef. Private dinners on the beach under the light of the moon, a candle, and 3 lanterns every evening were romantic. We simply showed up when we were hungry and they treated us royally. (no set times for anything except our spa appointments).
And the spa set out In the lake where all you can hear is the gentle waves. There is no better spa music in the world. Our massage therapist found muscles I didn't know I had. Every day I enjoyed a different treatment.
We rode mountain bikes into town to visit the market and cathedral (largest in central Africa). We kayaked up and down the shoreline. And we saw t he amazing fish in the lake with the provided masks, fins, and snorkels.
We enjoyed watching the fishermen at work on the nearby beach.
We lazed at our room set on the waters edge and got some pretty good suntans. The plunge pool was colder than the lake so we didn't spend much time in it.
Room service was fantastic. Housekeeping gave us a completely freshened room each day. The king size bed with netting was comfortable. Nice linens. Lots of comfortable sitting and cuddling spaces inside and outside.
This place is a challenge to get to; but well worth the effort if you like to fall off the edge of the world.
Yes, they do have great Internet in the lounge if you really must imbibe.
I just hope someday I can get back to this dream vacation
