We ran into this guest house by accident and were immediately convinced by the friendly, easy going, elderly owner, who also organizes trips on demand, and the great house. Best stay on our 3 week trip.

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
