Blessed by attentive yet relaxed service, along with impressive individuality, it’s impossible not to fall in love with this oasis of serenity. Award-winning Ngala Lodge is situated between Bakau and Fajara, and over the years, has gained a reputation for excellent standards and service. As a child-free property, the tropical gardens remain peaceful throughout the day. You’ll also discover several bird feeding points throughout the grounds, ensuring that wildlife can easily be enjoyed.
Allow yourself to be enticed by Ngala Lodge's beachside decking area or the two swimming pools, including an infinity pool that seems to merge with the Atlantic Ocean.
The perfect night’s sleep
Each Suite at Ngala is unique, cool and spacious, with several room options available, most boasting ocean views across the gently sloping lawns.
The main building was formerly a colonial mansion and houses the 10 original Suites over two floors, some having their own private garden area. Peter, the proud owner, has gradually added a variety of different Suites, while still retaining the sense of space and intimacy. Each suite is completely unique, with many individual features, such as a small library. A range of beauty treatments and massages can be arranged in the comfort of your suite on request.
The most recent Suite additions are the Macondo Sea View Suites, complete with private plunge pool; these were added in 2015, along with the stunning infinity pool, when Ngala celebrated its 20th anniversary.
Soak up the sunshine from a sandy cove
The tidal beach at Ngala is an attractive, sandy cove which can be reached via steep steps - a great spot for fishing or for enjoying a romantic stroll at low tide. A raised wooden decking area, complete with sunloungers and parasols, allows guests to enjoy the beachfront location at high tide too. This is a wonderful spot to enjoy a romantic evening drink whilst watching the sunset.
An exceptional dining experience awaits
One of the most enticing features of any stay at Ngala Lodge can be found in sampling the delicious dishes dreamt up by the chef team in the renowned on-site restaurant. The elevated restaurant, led by Head Chef, Assan, and developed by English chef, Jonathan Groves, serves excellent food with daily specials, along with an extensive wine list.
A new cocktail bar makes the most of the stunning vistas, and within the restaurant itself you can now observe the chefs at work as your meal is prepared. Low-key entertainment, including a weekly African night with dancers, creates an inviting atmosphere.
Due to the quality and range of dishes on offer, a high proportion of our clients choose to stay on a half board basis, which constitutes a table d'hôte menu with the option to eat à la carte (a small number of dishes will be at a supplement).
Ngala Lodge is extremely popular, so early booking is recommended. Ideal for couples seeking peace and quiet, this 'piece of paradise' also serves as a memorable honeymoon destination, and is perfect when combined with any of our unique properties.
