Room with a view

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 12 Jul 2022
Really enjoyed my stay at the lodge. The owners and staff are super friendly and helpful and the buffet breakfast was very standard for most hotels. The views are simply stunning and sunsets were totally spectacular.

Small details need to be taken care of like plugging in lamps next to beds and making sure they are working and electrical are safe. Too much furniture in the rooms. Towels in bathrooms before check in. Clean grout in bathrooms. Such a nice big TV in rooms but sadly did not have any channels. Would be great to have at least one international plug or adapter in the rooms but they do supply this service with a charging station at the dining area by the top pool.

Sadly some of the guests were totally messy and had littered in front of their unit and that was only cleaned up the following day which did create an eye-sore within the pristine environment .

I would certainly return to the lodge and look forward to flying the drone to get some great footage next time.

Thank you. See you soon..

      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.

      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
