A wonderful relaxing holiday for all, kids, toddlers and mom and dad! The food was excellent, activities for kids well thought out and executed and the rooms are tastefully and comfortably furnished. We didn't want for anything. The road to the lodge is quite bad though so factor in more travel time or bring a 4x4.

Perfect place to rid yourself of stress, and the food was fantastic. Will go back for the anniversary. Spa bath was a bit cool sometimes on account of their not being enough hot water. Massage was a bit soft as well. But everything else was awesome.

Exactly what a holiday should be! My kids are still talking about it and my 4 year old wants "to stay there forever". Excellent service and accommodation with lots to do or nothing to do if you choose.

The fishing both in the river and sea is some of the... More
