Stayed at Kivga Holiday Bungalow with family and I must say that it was such a pleasant stay. It's a very clean place and the rooms are equipped with A/C, ceiling fans, free Wi-Fi, Tea/coffee facility and a nice bathroom with hot water. The service was excellent and we were pleasantly surprised with the nice breakfast spread with local fruits... More

I spent two days at Kivga and it was a very pleasent experience. You get a beautiful view form the balcony and surroundings are pretty calm and relaxing. Loved the breakfast too. It was pretty hot outside the house, and the air conditioned room was a blessing. The owners were very helpful and nice.

My husband and I spent two nights at Kivga Bungalow and were impressed by the relaxed, friendly atmosphere. The hotel is essentially a family home turned into a hotel and the day-to-day family life continues downstairs. It was nice to see the comings and goings of the family and talk informally with them. The rooms are very nice and clean,... More

We didn't really enjoy our stay here at this Holiday Bungalow. We stayed for three nights over Christmas. We had a room upstairs with a good shower but we only had hot water on one of the three mornings. The breakfast was ready some time before we got down for it and the eggs, toast and fruit were left uncovered... More
