We stayed three nights at the Royal Chundu on the island - the villa was beautiful and the bubble bath had the best view! Staff are friendly and gracious, you will not lack for anything. Best pimms we ever had which is rather funny as we live in the UK. Food is very good, with a nice wine list. We... More

From the minute we arrived at Royal Chundu to the minute we departed, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience here. We felt completely looked after by the nicest group of people. Resort – They recently updated the furnishings in both lodges, the dining areas, pool areas, etc. It looks really beautiful. We stayed at the Island Lodge. Amazing, would definitely recommend...

We spent 3 nights at Royal Chundu, what an amazing property located on the banks of the Zambezi river. Driving from Livingston in Zambia, you begin to wonder where you are going, as the roads into Royal Chundu are dirt and very rough, but once you pull into the property it is nothing but spectacular! The staff at Royal Chundu... More

What a location! Located right on the mighty Zambezi River, thatched cottages on stilts. Hassah our host was super professional and welcoming. This is such a beautiful lodge and the individual chalets on the water’s edge was a mesmerizing experience. Our room was beautiful and so practical. I loved the large doors that could open completely onto our deck. This... More

Royal Chundu really is a very private and peaceful spot along the Zambezi. Looking out over the River,at dawn ,to see the active wildlife as our day began was so memorable. The Hotel tries to use local produce wherever possible and high standards of (friendly) service were maintained throughout. We changed our itinery twice whilst at the lodge. Hessah and... More

We had very high expectations for Royal Chundu. It looks beautiful in their website, it is a Relais & Chateaux property and it has some good reviews on Tripadvisor. Sadly most of our expectations were not met. The food was one of the main problems for us. The breakfast bar is very limited and the products are not as fresh... More

Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor and I am sorry that you felt that your expectations were not met. Allow us the chance to explain a few obstacles that we have when operating a luxury lodge in an extremely remote country and an extremely remote property in that country. When it comes to fruit juice, we squeeze and press... More

A complete gem, well deserving of its Relais & Chateau designation. We were thrilled with our stay from start to finish! The spacious and well equipped rooms are well spaced and situated on either side of the main buildings providing ample privacy and feeling of seclusion. The staff is wonderful and very, very well trained. They should be proud of... More

I made a profile on tripadvisor so I could rave about Royal Chundu! I've been to many luxury lodges and hotels and I have rarely seen such engaged and genuinely happy staff. Hessah did a marvelous job managing our always-changing itinerary always with a smile, the restaurant staff and manager were always there to help (especially with last minute cakes!),... More

Royal Chundu is truly special, beyond my imagination. Every part of it... After exploring the Vic Falls on the Zambian side, the private view Royal Chundu has of the Zambezi that welcomed us through the entrance as we arrived, Hessah’s warm hospitality, Edith’s village and genuine spirit, wonderful Madam Tina, the sunset cruise, the canoe outing and breakfast, the school...

A remote and absolutely beautiful spot off the Zambezi river. The quality of hospitality was unexpectedly high. (Not sure what I was expecting but they outdid themselves!) The polite and friendly staff paid high attention to detail often going out of their way to answer questions, cook food to our liking, reschedule trips to suit us etc. It made for... More
