Jatinga is a relaxing place with great food, great staff (whom management respect) especially Trudy (friendly and professional) and wonderful gardens. The kids loved playing here. The atmosphere was wonderful - elegant but relaxed, a rare combination. The pool was great on a hot day. There is new management that are planning to undertake a room renovation which will only...

Great to see a stunning venue being utilized to potential. Food was great, atmosphere relaxing. Looking forward to future events at Jatinga. Hoping for more developments, especially at the bar things like cocktails, specialized drinks etc. And a Banting friendly approach will also be great

The choice we made was perfect. When we arrived we began feeling as we were in the middle of the jungle, but in the most elegant way. The rooms were very cousy and the service was amazing. At dinner time I did not want to leave because the food was outstanding too.

Before posting this review, I have read the previous reviews given and to be honest; I am starting to wonder if we have visited the same place. We have stayed over at Jatinga on a few occasions and can honestly say that is nothing less than a brilliant experience. Not only was the staff extremely helpful, but the rooms in... More

We ha've stayed in this lodge in November and we are not very happy with the choice of this lodge. The main reason for this is that the new owners are not friendly to their staffmembers. The water in the swimmingpool didn't look clean. This is a lodge with a lot of opportunities, but the owners don't use the opportunities.

We stayed at this colonial style property for one night. It has new owners (Andre and his parents) who have a long job in front of them. It was like living in someone's home as they were so welcoming and their service was excellent but the rooms need a full redecorate (bathrooms were fine though) and although the gardens are... More

Jatinga Country Lodge has the feel of a colonial hideaway. It is set in beautiful and well maintained gardens. The rooms are spread around the compound in small cottages. The one I stayed in had a very high, peaked thatch roof. The rooms were large and clean, but all felt a bit dated and out of time. The food was... More
