Sawela really provided the best possible experience for my husband and I during our stay. Even in the midst of covid regulations we were served so well and taken care of in the best possible manner. Everything was conducted in a sanitary way and if you're thinking of taking a trip there don't even hesitate. You will be in safe hands! All the staff are absolutely splendid.

Overally, liked the hotel. The amenities are fantastic, gym well equipped and functioning. Room are well spacious, but the management may want to consider air conditioning in the rooms as sometimes the temperatures can be low in the region. The hotel manager is a good man, keeps in touch with the visitors, he's hard working, i liked him.

Sawela Lodges is a stunningly beautiful paradise with awesome friendly staff. From reception we were received warmly by Naomi and Nicole, they made us feel at home. The welcome they gave us gave us a perfect feeling of a fantastic holiday. The rooms were awesome and spacious. We had lot of activities to engage in within our limited time, swimming, guided nature walk with Isaac, playing at the games room and boating. The service and friendliness of staff is awesome. Food was good and waiters very attentive. The best experience ever with cheerful staff. Thanks Nicole and all other Staffs we interacted with. Keep up the great work. We shall definitely be back soon.
