Always feel like arriving home....you all make us feel very at home. I love the new changes. The restaurant can do with a new menu. It’s the old Mseni, with whole lot improvements. Thanks for running it separate form Coral. I was very skeptical, but I will definitely be back.

The staff v helpful in linking you up with dive people, Turtle egg-laying tours etc. Only suggestion...

We took 11 delegates post conference to game parks and two nights in Sodwana - we stayed at Mseni on our second night and what a pleasant surprise! The location was wonderful - strolling on the deserted unspoilt beach was sublime and we were close to the scuba outfits for those who wanted to dive. The accommodation was not all...

We actually changed from Coral Divers to this resort and were very glad we did!! Coral Divers looks fine for a younger clientele but as 60 year olds this suited us much better. We were possibly a bit spoilt because we were upgraded to a family chalet which gave us a bedroom and bathroom each - had we wanted them!...

Mseni Lodge is very well located, as it is one of two places located close to the beach. The accommodation is very basic. The linen was very clean, but the cabins in overall needs an update. We also stayed there in 2008 and nothing changed really. I think air conditioning will be a great upgrade, because you can't leave your...

Had lunch at the new look Mseni Lodge restaurant and were pleasently surprised with the revamped restaurant, menu, friendly staff and GM. The food was great and the staff were efficient. The new food and coctail menu is a winner and I will definately be back in December. Even saw some Whales playing in the ocean from the deck.

We had an amazing time just getting away from the city with the family, From what was a three day short stay we felt like it was a 'real holiday' with the wonderful service, amazing food and incredible views with a beach so secluded and so beautiful in it's natural setting..unspoilt, leaving you with the feeling of being alone on...

Mseni Lodge is a really nice place to stay. Considering there is a pool and restaurant - makes it even nicer. Sodwana Bay is one of the most beautiful places to visit - if you are a diver especially. Nature is incredible and you can really relax. There is no real facilities around and one needs to realise all is...
