Accommodation and Facilities

The lodge is comprised of 16 suites and a large villa that was previously the owners home.

The main lodge area also features a pool with sun loungers, and massages and spa treatments are available on the secluded treatment deck.


Hearty three-course dinners and buffet breakfasts are generally served communally in the main lodge around a large dining room table, although private dining options are also available.
