    This lodge sets in the middle of a coffee plantation. The view of the plantation and gardens is a very relaxing and peaceful setting. Rooms are large and very nice. The grounds are beautiful with walkways through the grounds. The food and service was spectacular....More

    Wonderful welcome with bubbly and nibbles. Enormous bed with 8 pillows. Balcony looked over the peaceful garden. Can't think of anything that would improve our experience. The staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. Food delicious.
