Everything about the place was great. The views overlooking the lagoon and the ocean were beautiful. The decor was top notch. The rooms were sizeable and very clean. Sam, the hostess and her husband were wonderful. The chef prepared the most scrumptious meals. I also enjoyed the walk to the beach down the road. I will most definitely come back soon.

We had an incredible evening celebrating our 14th Anniversary at Alkira. We absolutely loved the food, the ambience, the incredible views! The hospitality was out of this world and honestly the best breakfast ever! I think the only aspect that I could possibly fault is that there weren't tea / coffee making facilities in the room. Otherwise, everything was incredible and such a spoil to spend the night there. Thank you to Sam and her brilliant team!

Alkira Lodge is THE place! Most enjoyable. Precisely placed on top of a hill with a stunning 360° view on to the mountains and on to the ocean and the lagoon. Kitchen and wine cellar are just awesome and the host, Samantha is wonderful hearty. All staff members are very professional.
