Stunning location! Brilliant stay!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 05 Jun 2022via mobile
This hotel is located in the beautiful area of Siavonga near the Kariba Dam. The food was soo good buffet style with western and local options, food was fresh and tasty!
We stayed in executive lake view and these rooms were huge, clean, great view, Air con and big bed.
The pool area is beautiful and the views and palm trees make it a peaceful place to relax. I loved that they played modern songs but a drawn back piano instrumental versions which made the whole atmosphere so peaceful.
The bar was fully equipped so i enjoyed a cocktail in the pool whilst I read my book.
There is a beach area down some stairs nearby also.
Negatives: There is no net on the balcony doors so bugs can get in if your not careful. We were late checking in because previous guests hadn't checked out but the hotel offered us free lunch and a room upgrade because of the inconvenience so can't argue with that!
Overall a perfect stay i would definitely recommend and hope to come back for a longer stay.

Booking was easy, i loved the fact that the lodge checked to confirm we were still coming. We were received very well at the reception, the room was great, the staff friendly. Food was great, gym was wonderful, and the views divine ! Overall, outstanding !

The place is so beautiful, once you check in you think you are in a different world altogether. WE enjoyed the sunrise as we looked into the Lake and the sunset was just as amazing. I felt the place was quite the right place to unwind and rest. The rooms were fair simple and habitable, the breakfast was good but the other meals lacked variety as lunch and dinner were just almost the same, there is need to change around the meals considering that once you are in there with the ambience you do not feel like leaving the place. We had a great time by the pool next to our lakeview rooms. I was disappointed with the cocktails that we ordered as they seemed to be more water that the alcohol and mix.

Above all the stay was short and great

Room tip: Lakeview rooms have the best views

It is a lovely location to take some time out. The staff was friendly the food was very tasty and fresh. We
had a room with the view of the lake and close to the guest pool which was perfect.
The bath/shower in our room might do with a few touch ups (did not inform management).
Definitely going back

My husband and I plus our 3 kids enjoyed our stay here.

The rooms could do with an upgrade - everything works but they feel a bit dated.

The scenery is lovely - beautiful location. We really enjoyed use of the guests only pool.

Breakfast was excellent - large variety of food to choose from. Our only complaint was that dinner took too long on the 3 nights we ate there. The food took over an hour to arrive each day. However, when it eventually arrived it was always great, well prepared and tasty.

Room tip: We had room 18 and 19 - good view and close to the residents-only pool

Stayed for a weekend with family and the place is nice with great pools, nice view of the lake, nice greens, good food especially breakfast and the dinner braai buffet. However, the rooms need a bit of a face lift, the aircon is old and noisy, the TVs didn't work and no proper reason was given. Overall, a good place to relax from.
