Lovely place with perfect view of the sea. Unfortunately weather was bad. (Name of the lodge prescribed the conditions). Gravel road could be in better condition. Chalets are very nice and Food is excellent. Can be recommended.

We were very disappointed with this hotel. We were impressed by the good reviews and decided to splurge on a nice room. When we got there the room was not as described - it promised a sea view when there wasn't, it was a tent without a heater etc. We never got to the bottom of whether they gave us... More

I can't say enough good things about this Lodge! We stayed in die Honeymoon suite, it was a huge room with extra sitting room, large bathroom with spa bath and 2 outside deck area's.

It was a real surprise to find this place at the end of kilometres bad road. The peacocks welcomed us and the place to which we were led was awesome. Beautiful view over the garden reaching the end of the cliffs and looking over the ocean at sunset

We booked on a spur of the moment and we're pleasantly surprised at every turn. A short stint on a dirt Road, which was easily managed in a low lying polo, brought us through some beautifully kept farm lands to Misty Mountain. We stayed in the rustic cottages as everything else was fully booked and they were anything but rustic.... More

The location is great, on the cliff tops, views out to sea. However that is where the positive aspects stopped for us. We booked a luxury lodge - there is clearly a difference between their description of luxury and ours. Accommodation is sparse and well worn, with little or no storage space, hanging rail provided was useless, leaving a shelf... More
