Our group stayed in this lodge for 1 night. The room was basic but very nice, bed was comfortable with a mosquito net. Although there was no air-con, it was not hot at night as temperature I think dropped to below 20 degrees Celsius. There was no TV in the room. There was water heater in each room and water temperature was hot enough for showers.
There was free WiFi at the lobby but reception was rather weak and slow. Food at the restaurant was very good and drinks were very cheap. A cappuccino cost only US$1, 1 litre of Coke was only US$2.50 and a bottle of beer was only US$1.50.
The tour provided by the lodge was very interesting and fun as there were several lemurs kept on an island. They were being regularly fed by the staff and they were not afraid of visitors. All the lemurs jumped around and landed on every visitor’s shoulders without exception. There was an elderly very beautiful lemur with golden hair on his arms and legs. With the banana treat offered by the staff, he performed the horizontal bouncing dance which taking videos were highly recommended. The lodge also kept a crocodile farm with many crocodiles, turtles, snakes, wild cats, and white Ibis.
