We had a lovely, relaxing five days here with our three boys. The villa is beautifully situated right next to Lake Koggala and is a wonderful refuge. The staff were wonderful, helpful and attentive, cooked us some lovely meals, and we had some great laughs with the night watchman who took us out fishing one night. Would definitely recommend.

We ate delicious food, which...

My family spent a relaxing week at the cottage, using the pool, fishing on the lake and the odd visit around the area. Property and staff excellent. If you want a relaxing and peaceful holiday this is the place for you.
