This place is right on the stunning Kiwengwa beach, and a thoroughly loved waking up and heading straight to the beach, and the stunning view you get from the lodge's 'chill out' area. The breakfast here was great also, and management and staff are so friendly. Them combined with the really nice and chilled out backpackers that were here the same time as me made this a great place to relax, and enjoy some good conversations.
If you're really brave, there's a plunge pool (absolutely freezing but a suppose good for the hot days when you want to cool off)
The negatives were that the food they serve is pretty expensive, although when I ordered it, I did enjoy it. However, at the time I went, there was a lady selling samosas nearby (we often went to her and they were so yummy) and so if you're on a budget, there's that option.
Also, our room wasn't cleaned as much as it should have been in the 10 days I was here.
Overall, I fully recommend this place if you're fine with basic backpacker amenities. It's the perfect spot to relax, meet people and appreciate the beauty of Kiwengwa beach. I hope to come back :)
