OUR LODGES

Shorea
 

Shorea, or Meranti, is a wood that features extensively in our Shorea Lodge. An ode to David, the man who gave our dreams a life,  it is a homage to the craftsmanship and work that created and built this lodge. Like David, Shorea provides structure and remains strong and unique when exposed to changing environments. Shorea cannot be warped, it cannot be twisted - and like our Dave, is versatile and partial to some woodworking

Shorea Lodge is our first lodge and is situated close to the banks of the river. It is the perfect space for family or friend gatherings with two seperate units that each sleep four (upstairs and downstairs). A two minute walk over the bridge onto our sand banks where you can enjoy your very own beach.  Each unit has been uniquely designed with a handcrafted finishes and a local flare. The units are booked separately, but please feel free to enquire  about booking the whole lodge.
