We loved our roof top room in Sea Star Lodge with its great view over the houses in front, to the beautiful sea view. To sleep with the sound of crashing waves on the cliffs and to wake up to the sound of whales blowing as they surface close by, is a fantastic treat and an experience not to be... More

I've previously mentioned in other reviews how I am fortunate to travel quite extensively for my work. Obviously this means that I have sampled some of the best and worst accommodation from all over the world. Each place has its own charms, it's plusses and in some cases almighty downsides. My favourite place happens to be in Singapore. My 2nd... More

Rita and Frank could not have done more to make our stay special. Unusual and unique restaurants, special excursions all suggested with out feeling they were intruding. They even... More

We've been visiting Sea Star Lodge many times over the years, and each time it feels like coming home. The moment you enter the lodge and see the beautiful view over Walker Bay, with whales and dolphins making a regular appearance, you immediately feel relaxed. Their two dogs, Max and Mulan, can be regularly spotted in front of the large... More
