this is a lovely lodge set in a plantation with lush gardens and a magical view. whichever direction you are coming from on the northern circuit it makes a lovely luxurious stop. the rooms were huge- we booked two so that our children had their own vast space which they didn't really need !the rooms have a verandah and a fireplace with a lounge area so it was a shame we couldn't stay for longer really.... the bathrooms were large and the bath rather shocking in the circumstances where water is so precious ( can't imagine anyone filling them they were almost a pool) but the views and the verandah were gorgeous. the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was good. the pool was lovely and the peace was welcome. highly recommended.
