What a wonderful hotel! We arrived in the afternoon after a short flight from Tana, and were greeted at the airport by very helpful staff and a zebu cart.

Unfortunately it rained and there were strong winds for a good part of our visit here,and I am willing to concede this may have coloured our judgement of this hotel. The villas are spacious and well kept. A large and comfortable bed with a smaller child's bed.A well furnished deck, and two dedicated sun beds in front of each one...

Dear Guest, I'm really sad to read your long review and that you weren't satisfied by your stay at Princesse Bora Lodge.

The Princesse Bora exceeded expectations! Beautiful free standing villa with ocean view and lovely stone shower, very short walk to restaurant and bar and spa and pier, zebu cart transport to/from airport, excellent service, cuisine food. Local dancers, whale watching, snorkeling.Perfect in all ways! Truly a stay in Paradise! Would definitely stay here again.

Our bungalow was very nicely put together with double bed and two singles including mosquito nets and cleaned every day. The washing facilities are clean...

We stayed here for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.The highlight was the whale watching and although we got soaking wet on the boat we managed to see 12 whales close enough to get some reasonable photos. Our bungalow was right on the beach and was comfortable without being luxurious.There are more expensive rooms which are, of course, much...

This hotel has a nice informal beach vibe. They take you from the airport to the hotel in an ox cart, which is entertaining, and fortunately, a very short trip! The staff who greeted us on arrival smiled and shook our hands, but didn't introduce themselves, and our lady spoke very little as she toured us round. It isn't clear...
