Tolle Lage

Insgesamt absolut empfehlenswert, wenn auch nicht ganz preiswert. Aber die Lage ist einmalig. Essen war insgesamt auch sehr lecker.

Mseni Lodge was ons hoogtepunt van Sodwana.

Ons ontvangs deur die ontvangsdames was baie vriendelik. Die eenheid modern, mooi skoon, groot bed. Die ontbyt was baie lekker en die restaurant het 'n goeie verskeidenheid op die spyskaart.

Absolutely superb place. Unreservedly recommended to anyone visiting this area.

Fabulous hotel in a uniquely gorgeous setting a short walk (steps, so not disabled accessible) through jungle to the top of a sand dune letting down about 200 m onto a pristine empty beach about 4 miles long. About 2 miles to the north around the point at the end of that beach is the main dive centre beach with several dive companies represented there and a small friendly café. If not wanting to walk there, you can self-drive or take hotel transport. There is a sister resort owned by the same individual as Mseni, being entirely diving-focused and full of people there explicitly for the diving, so for us the ideal combination approach was staying at chilled out Mseni and doing any diving you want to through Coral Divers. They offered very competent refresher training if you wanted it (we did), and slick well-guided diving on the reefs which are as reputed still in great condition without the hideous bleaching so sadly effecting much coral elsewhere due to water warming as part of climate change. All easily accessible with good long bottom times as not that deep about 9 - 12 metres, so easy and safe. If, like me, your age makes humping heavy dive cylinders around a challenge, assistance from boat-driver staff are readily available; ask for Geoffrey if you want to enjoy the same first class assistance that we did. Mseni has a lovely restaurant with a terrace looking out over the Indian Ocean, excellent food and drink served by charming engaged staff for him. Nothing was too much trouble. Managers Hannis and his wife Leonie were lovely and rapidly became friends who we look forward to seeing again next visit. Rooms are first class, impeccably cleaned daily, safes etc and all the usual you might wish for. Safety and security concerns always arise when planning a South African trip. We had no problems at all with this area when staying here. If you self drive to the dive-beach, the car park is run by a group of youngsters who will want to seek some cash payment for 'looking after' and washing your car; going rate at about R150 was a bit steep in the context of an otherwise very cost-effective trip. Probably easier to take transport from Coral Divers resort to the beach. The value for money for the rooms, food and drink was first rate. Many thanks for a lovely stay and great hospitality.

We had a wonderful 10 days at Mseni and will definitely be back.

Mseni was really great with friendly staff. The newly renovated units are amazing. It's by far the best place to stay in Sodwana.

Very neat and clean rooms and the food and service was excellent.

Will go there again with my family. The cabin is well-equipped and very clean with everything you could need. The restaurant also has delicious food and friendly service. Would have liked to stay longer at Mseni.

Sal graag met my gesin weer soontoe gaan. Houthuise is uitstekend ingerig en baie skoon binne met als wat mens nodig het. Die restaurant het ook heerlike kos en vriendelike diens. Sou graag langer wou oorbly by Mseni.

Wonderful getaway top by seeing turtle hatchlings.

Great place to getaway to, very relaxing, owners very helpful nothing too much trouble. Loved my stay at Mseni lodge. An amazing place to stay if one wants to see turtles, and to do bird-watching, tours can be organised.

Nie die geld werd nie.

Honeymoon verblyf is nie honeymoon verblyf nie, betaal die verblyf vooraf, maar die plek kla as mens daar kom dan is is daar nog ekstra kostes wat jy moet betaal wat nie vir mens vooraf gesê is nie. Geen air-conditioning in die kamer nie en jy kan nie jou venster of deur oopmaak nie dan kom die blouaap in die huisie in.

Beautiful location.

We were not advised of the 2 levies totalling R280.00 to be paid. This may have been in the small print but we didn't see it. I see we had to pay to enter the Park but still not sure why we had to pay again at the lodge. For a 1 night stop over this put the price up as compared to other lodges we were considering.

Heerlik, net hopeloos te kort!

Baie lekker plekkie as jy wil ontspan naby die see. Dit het als wat jy nodig het. Die apies is bietjie lastig, maar dis tog deel van die ervaring. Ek dink net nie dis ideaal vir 'n besigheidsreis nie, omdat dit lank vat om tot by jou bestemming te kom as gevolg van toegangspunte en kronkelpaaie/grondpaadjies. Ek sal definitief weer soontoe gaan as dit net vir ontspannings-doeleindes is.

Mooi area, maar die huisies kort aandag.

Ek moet begin deur te sê dat Tracy baie behulpsaam en vriendelik was. Die verblyf was eenvoudig en die kombuis heeltemal te klein. Badkamers was bietjie grillerig. Ek is lief vir die natuur, maar a.g.v. onlangse misdaad het ons nie veilig genoeg gevoel om te kan stap en die woude of om die strande te geniet nie. Ons het een ete by die restaurant gaan eet. Ons het die vooraf-verpakte kos se etiket binne in die kos gekry. 'n Teleurstelling.

Gerieflik in die reservaat gelee.

Baie lekker gebly. Baie, baie lekker plek! Net groot genoeg vir twee mense. Mal daaroor dat dit daagliks skoongemaak word en daar is 'n sekuriteitswag wat rondloop, so mens voel veilig. Die pragtige swembad was heerlik as die strand te rof raak en die restaurant op die perseel maak dit net meer gerieflik!

Wonderful location, makes up for the rest!

This was our second stay in Mseni Lodge, and although the place has some gaps (especially in cleanliness area) this is the only place in the area with direct access to the beach, and the location is absolutely stunning. If you go for a walk on the beach, make sure you mark the clearly the dune where you go up. Restaurant is OK - good enough not to venture into town (outside the park area) if you don't feel like it. There is a well stocked shop and filling station within the park, just outside the second gate.

Lovely comfortable space, however needs maintenance and newer bathroom and kitchen fittings.

Very unwelcoming damp and musty smell when entering the chalet, especially bedrooms. This cleared up once windows were opened and rooms aired out. Whole window pane and frame fell out of main bedroom. I had to get assistance from reception to refit with nails and could not open throughout the stay. Overall, a very enjoyable stay and the family and friends enjoyed immensely.

Mseni Lodge is goed geleë en waarde vir geld.

Een probleem is dat die eenheid se onderhoud swak is, veral wanneer jy die prys in ag neem. Daar kan regtig meer moeite gedoen word. Baie rustige en mooi omgewing. Die restaurant se etes was fantasties en goed geprys. Sal beslis weer daar besoek aflê.

Skoon, netjies en goeie diens.

Dit was ongelooflik lekker om elke keer nadat ons by die strand was terug te kom na 'n skoon chalet toe - geen skottelgoed geen sand skoon handdoeke skoon chalet... Mseni is regtig 'n wonderlike plek met 'n fantastiese restaurant. Die kos was van die beste gehalte en reg gaargemaak. Daar is ook verskeie " cocktails " om van te kies en 'n volledige spyskaart. Die strand is relatief naby en baie stil lyk asof 'n mens op 'n eiland is. Die wooneenhede is ten volle toegerus en daar is baie warm water.

Rustige privaat chalet. Vriendelike blouapies wat elke dag kom inloer.

Die diens, verblyf en die restaurant was PUIK! Warren se kombuis gee uitstekende diens en ons sal definitief weer teruggaan. Groot dankie aan Tracy, Warren en hul span. PUIK verby! Verder is hul strand baie privaat en met ons geluk het ons 'n seeskilpad gekry wat haar eiers kom lê het. Mseni Lodge 10/10 !

Ideaal toegerus vir selfsorg!

Daar was 'n onmiddellike gevoel van vakansie en gemak met aankoms. Die skoonmaakdiens elke dag maak die "self-catering"-ervaring die moeite werd. Die restaurant het goeie diens, maar die pryse is bietjie hoog ... maar met die kwaliteit van disse was dit definitief elke sent werd. Die plek is naby die see; daar's 'n wandelpad wat die strand maklik toeganklik maak. Vat maar eie braaihout saam, want dis belaglik duur vir vier stukkies hout wat jou braai-ervaring net onnodig moeilik maak. Die braai-area was baie gerieflik.

Baie lekker; sal weer teruggaan!

Dit was baie "nice", maar 'n bietjie outyds en 'n bietjie opknapwerk word benodig. Die tweeplaatstoof was geroes en nie regtig op standaard nie. Ek sal enige iemand aanraai om by die restaurant te gaan eet en drink. Dit bied nie net waarde vir geld nie, maar het ook 'n baie mooi uitsig oor die see.
