Four spacious guest rooms, each with its own verandah and views. King-size beds, ensuite with walk-in showers; the Deluxe rooms offer deep freestanding bathtubs.

Pre-loaded with links and guides to local restaurants, visitor attractions, and other services, access to email and the internet will literally be at guests’ fingertips. The iPad will also deliver a selection of newspapers from around the world each morning, a library of current-issue, multi-lingual magazines, real-time weather forecasts, driving maps and onward travel advice. It will also come in handy as a remote control device for streaming music and movies from the lodge’s digital library, directly to the 32″ TV in guest rooms.


A hearty breakfast is included in the rate, together with complimentary Wi-Fi.
