The location of the lodge is everything, it is so peaceful and serene. We got to sleep with the curtains open as there is literally ZERO light pollution. You are sleeping amongst nature and stillness. This is a place where you slow down and read and relax and just enjoy being still. The meals are all included in the room rate and everything we ate was divine! We got massages in our room which were outstanding and a highlight of our stay, really put us in the right mode to make the most out of our short stay. Special mention to Suz who was very helpful and gave us some great local advice!
I think the mini bar beverages should be upgraded. For a premium lodge the mini bar options should reflect that and they didn't. Also there was no french champagne available by the glass which was disappointing.
Staff food and room
No spa or pool
The lodge is beautiful however the food didn’t meet our expectation and the price is too costly for a lodge like that....
With this kind of charge the lodge should work harder on the food variety and the taste....
this place is like a jewel.it so well located in a very quiet and calm place with such a beautiful view and surounding ,that you feal staying and enjoy.the whole staff from the manager to any other member of the team made our vacation unforgotable.
Staff were really attentive and friendly. The room was amazing, overlooking the lake with fantastic “one off” activity opportunities.
