Lovely experience! very comfortable stay. Host is very friendly. Ocean front and very quiet. Not many tourists in that area so it is very peaceful. Food at the restaurant is very good. Best part is that its not crowded.

I loved Sea View Lodge it was a very nice place to stay at. I loved the beach and it was very calm and peaceful. We took a walk on the beach and it was very fascinating. I would want to go there again.

Our 6 night stay was exactly what we were looking for. Not being high season, the area was pretty quiet, but the hotel was full throughout most of our stay. Our room (beach front) was simply, but tastefully decorated. Storage could have been a little better, but the bed was comfortable with good mosquito nets and the bathroom had a... More

We stayed eight nights in this nice hotel. We had sea-front bungalows, the view over the beach and the colourful sea was overwhelming and we enjoyed this point most at this place. It’s just relaxing and peaceful to look in the morning the local people from the village when they go for fishing or collecting sea weed. The rooms where... More

My friend, her mother and I stayed at this lodge for 1 week at the end of June and although the weather wasn't the best (end of the rainy season) the lodge was a very comfortable place to spend some time. The rooms are spacious and clean (cleaned to a high standard everyday) and there is a generator for when... More

It is ridiculous to label Sea View as a “boutique hotel”. It doesn’t meet any of the criteria of a “boutique hotel”. It has all the potential to be a very nice and small beach hotel or guest house, but the owners/managers suffer from illusions of grandeur if they think this is a “boutique hotel”. They are without a doubt... More

Stunning place, no complaints at all about the area or rooms. A bit surprised having to pay as soon as we arrived, we hadn't even put our bags down! Disappointed with the restaurant availability, that really needs to be improved. My friend and I ordered different pizzas yet when they were brought to our table they were exactly the same.... More

My husband and I stayed 10 days at the Sea View Lodge. It is a lovely place. Very well kept. The service is excellent. We had a room with a view of the ocean and fell asleep every night to the sound of the waves. The only recommendation would be to improve the selection and availability of the food served... More

From the moment you arrive you are made welcome by the friendly staff. Yusaf the manager bent over backwards to assist us with all our requests ( 8 girlfriends can be rather demanding! )and made sure we were safe and comfortable. The rooms are spotless and spacious with lovely character of the island. White linen and airconditioning provides the comfort.... More
