  Excellent time

We had a fantastic stay here. We were pleasantly surprised by the food. The accommodation was great and I would absolutely come stay here again.

  Re-energise my spirit break
(South Africa)   Mrs Weston 05 May 2014
My husband and I are both 65 years old and run a business which can sometimes be very unrewarding. We have worked very hard over the past couple of years and decided we needed a break to re-energise our spirits and going to Bayala Lodge was a perfect choice. We were greeted there by the friendliest and most welcoming "friends", we have ever met. We were advised on sites to see and places to visit which suited our needs to a "T". The meals were fantastic, and the ideal time for the staff at Bayala to create an atmosphere for the staff and guests to interact. Our room was kept nice and clean and we left all our belongings in their capable hands when we went out. We honestly did not want to leave on Sunday. We would definitely go back for a visit and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dave and his wonderful staff for the glorious week end there.
