Mseni Lodge has recently been renovated. Everything looks great. The restaurant on the top floor has a great view, the food is good and the service excellent. A good place to stay when in Sodwana and even better place to eat.

Correct chalets in the bush. The bar/restaurant is cheap and proposes a great view on the Indian Ocean. The pool and an access to the beach are nice advantages. People are helpful. Only disadvantage: you cannot access to the chalets with your car, which means the luggage have to be carried. Prey not for having chalet too far from the...

Fantastic location. Direct access to the dunes/beach through dense coastal vegetation. Dunes as far as your eyes can see and you are still on your own. Pauline and Tracy from management are very kind and helpful. Staff very pleasant and efficient. Good food served at the restaurant which overlooks the trees and the ocean. Only drawback is that because the...

We love staying at Mseni when we do scuba diving. It have everything you need and you can even walk down to the beach. If you are one for cocktails and great views, the restaurant is simply the best place to be in Sodwana Bay

Lodge was good however the bathrooms and kitchens can do with an upgrade. Bed was from heaven...so so comfortable. The walk from the lodge to the main beach along the wooden deck is very far, especially if you're carrying beach luggage so I would suggest driving to the public beach. Staff was excellent. Did not use the restaurant so cannot...

We had a great time at Mseni Beach Lodge. We enjoyed diving and the short distance to the sea. Chalets are situated nicely in the forest and the roof top Restaurant has a fantastic view. Food is very tasty as well.
