We are a couple of 60+ and traveling quite a lot around the globe and visiting mainly natural and historical places . Mostly we enjoy lovely boutique places as well small personal lodges. We are glad to share our experiences in a brief form below (including photos) with YOU:
The road to that lodge is as lots of place close to the sea very sandy (4x4 WD). The Naara Eco Lodge is lovely situated on a hilly shore of a long fresh water lake called "Lagoa Inhampavale"
+ . Infrastructure and pool lovely situated, however got long in the tooth
. Reception, bar & restaurant quite new even if not too cosy
. Good Facilities: swimming (in the lagoon or pool) kayaking, horse riding
. Very nice kitchen (meals should be ordered in advance)
- . "Luxury-tents": got long in the tooth (should need a little face lifting!): floor made from concrete, small "bathroom" with 2 sinks & separated toilet & shower (& 1 outdoor shower)
. In our tent: one bed sheet dirty, missing 2 tooth puller & paper towels (1st night no electricity)
. Host/owner during our stay not on place (obviously only half of the time in Mosambik)
. Most of the time quite loud noise of a nearby generator
. In case of bad weather not lots to do (beside Spa)
. Breakfast very poor (no fresh juice, no fruit, no yoghurt or müesli, no toast bread....)
> . All a little neglected and ratty: far away of attribute "Luxury"!
> . All this although only 6 guests and about twice the staff amount!
>>> I recommend this place (for this price & "Luxury"-attribute) only with lots of restrictions!
