Nabana Lodge awarded 2015 Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence

Posted by Magda on Wed May 20, 2015 in Tourism.

We are proud to announce that Nabana Lodge has been awarded the Tripadvisor 2015 Certificate of Excellence. It is an achievement that would not have been possible without our valued guests, Restaurateur Paul Shepheard and every member of staff. A special thank you goes to guests that posted their reviews on Tripadvisor!

For me one of life’s greatest priviliges remains the opportunity to serve, and as owner and host of Nabana Lodge this is something that I am in a position to do daily. From the time the request for accommodation comes through to receiving guests and making them welcome, the dining experience and finally saying goodbye, this is an uplifting experience. There are challenges of course, such as receiving guests that got lost, or coming in from a storm or in darkness because of load shedding! Receiving this reward makes every moment worth it. This is what some of our guest had to say:

Thank you every one at Nabana. Friendly staff and beautiful rooms. Food was great. The Most amazing view right from our room - laying in bed you can watch the most amazing sun rise! Will be back soon!

We stayed at Nabana on a tour of South Africa and it was up there as one of the best places we stayed. Affordable, friendly staff, stunning rooms and a breathtaking view, it was everything and more than we wanted. We received the warmest welcome from the wonderful staff and were given a private, secluded room with all the home comforts we needed. The bar is amazing, with such a relaxed atmosphere and friendly people. Unfortunately we could only stay for two nights, but they were so accommodating when we didn't book before hand they found us a cosy and clean room instantly. If anyone asked me I would highly recommend this place to stay for couples and families alike.

Nestled in banana land... Nabana Lodge gives you the best view of the sunrise and a lovely refreshing environment - the gardens are just marvellous filled with the tropical air, rooms are specious and giving you the freedom to have your early morning coffee in your room or just a full meal for yourself... if not, you have an opportunity to excite your taste buds from the sumptuous meals from Paul - a British Chef whose found it his joy to give a variety of dishes on offer for all guests and locals visiting Nabana Lodge. Nabana Lodge a place to visit again and again to receive the warmth of Nabana Lodge welcome from the owner and the staff. Rooms are well ventilated and filled with natural light.  You sleep relaxed.
