I stayed here with my partner and although the majority of people staying here seemed to be on a package tour, we were independent traveler's and came here especially as we knew of it as a good bird watching destination.
The staff were lovely, really helpful and polite.
The grounds were immaculate, (very well tendered plants and gardens) the pool/s (there are two swimming pools) were excellent.
Ok, so don't expect 4 star luxury, you wont be getting posh rooms with room service. However, our room, was perfectly adequate, basic but large and clean. We had a fridge and aircon. The room was cleaned every day.
When they found out we were bird watchers, they upgraded our room for the last couple of days, to have a balcony view over the fields, for no extra charge. Obviously, don't expect that, ... availability etc, but they did do it for us, such a kind gesture and we were very appreciative.
We would get up early in the morning, sit on our balcony and watch the Kingfishers, woodpecker, paradise flycatcher, Wooly necked stork, Parrots, Shikra, Black- winged Kite, to name but a few! It really was an excellent experience.
Yes the inclusive breakfast is a little basic, but it is plentiful, as much toast and jam as you want and there is a Tea ern so you can help yourself to as much Tea, coffee, hot water as you may want.
There is a choice of open air or under cover restaurant for the evening. Again, immaculate, good food, polite and friendly staff. Mosquito coils placed under the tables and fairy lights look pretty.
The resort of Baga, is a bit hectic but the hotel although very central, is set back just enough, to make it a little piece of calm!
They have safety deposit boxes behind the reception, so you can keep your valuables safe, and you don't have to worry at all about them.
I would go back there in a shot! I am missing it already!
