A quick pass by the hotel - food was average, limited menu - needs improvement. Views, cleanliness and service were very good. Well maintained. The manager was quite helpful and chit chatty to tell me more about their hotel and amenities. Clear emphasis on service and customer retention.

We went here for Easter, but left after only two nights. The place is really nice, and the manager did his best to accommodate us - we came expecting to self-cater, but the facilities were not ideal. But the main problem was the party going on every afternoon/evening right outside our rooms with loud music and Bollywood films projected on...

During my several visits to this resort, I fully enjoyed the High Tide at the unique beach. The Tides are too good in this curvy beach and people can enjoy a lot. Even the road to the resort goes through the little bushes for about half a kilometer which is an experience in itself. The resort has a Pool also...

The location of Changani is beautiful. On a hill top overlooking the ocean. Perfect combination of greenery and beach. There is a private beach where you can walk down from the stairs. Very friendly staff. Limited food menu but tasty. For better experience you need to inform them in advance for food. The place needs a bit of guidance to...

If you're looking for a quiet getaway, I'd advise not staying in one of the rooms by the swimming pool. Music is played at top notch throughout the day and night. I'm told the bungalows down the hillside are quieter. The self-catering apartment located directly in front of the swimming pool, had little in way of cooking utensils, pots &...

My girlfriend had been at Changani Cottage before, but on the way I still doubted there could be a place like she told, but I lost the bet, and now have to wash her feet every day a year. After a long and curved dirtroad we found some like paradise on earth. There was only a few guests - could...

Welcome to real Africa. Excellent nature hidden behind dusty and puzzling pathways. if you are driving by yourself, you must be a genius and native speaker to find your destination.

We visited at Changani a few times over the past few months and stayed the night last night.
