A tranquil spot on the ocean, charming rooms, and delicious Italian pasta to be had. Thanks to Iris and her team for making us feel right at home!

  • Wonderful hospitality

    We loved our six days stay here including New Year’s night. Iris surrounds every client with her motherly care, from booking to check out, making sure everything works well and even personally bidding good bye. The booking was easy, the airport pickup a breeze, the check-in excellent. We stayed in a suite, it had aircon, fridge, good mattress and a nice view. The sockets were all international which made connections easier. The internet was only available in the lobby and not very good quality so better buy sim somewhere. The food was plentiful and a good variety including some Italian dishes. Easy access to snorkelling and other trips. An overall excellent memories and we look forward to returning.

  • Safe and friendly accommodation

    I have stayed at the lodge on 5 occasions, it just keeps getting better. The staff are professional, caring and the lodge is a great escape from the hustle of reality. It gives great access to the dive centre, and you get to have a great deal of autonomy over your own preferences, on meals, times, and they also provide packed meals to fit around your excursions.
