I recently stayed at Changani Beach Cottages for a 4 month. The grounds were simple, but beautiful. The cottages and restaurant were perched on a bluff overlooking the ocean.

Went there couple of weeks ago with the review of its 'goodness'. Very disappointed with the road, and it takes more than 19km for sure. Later found out management was terrible compared to other lodges, the staff were unfriendly. If you are not going to waste your money I recommend other places for sure.

We arrived saturday noon. Nice reception and helpful. We set up camp right at the beach thanks to the owner's assistance and his vibrant team. Beautiful clean beach. Amaizing views. It was the most fun packed stay with our friends.

We stayed 7 days and only needed a place to sleep since we had a very active vacation. We only spend 2 evenings in our room, very much to our satisfaction. The value for money is very good, the staff very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is well organized and, next to the traditional continental ingredients, there was a good... More

Changani is very good and amazing place. It’s really beautiful and nice place to spend time with friends and family. Accommodation is enjoyable with verandas as well as ocean views. Food is also appreciated. We really appreciate and thanks to Changani’s Staff, who gave us better service.
