          Hi there! My fiancé and I are considering staying at Matemwe Lodge in a bungalow for our honeymoon. Can you tell me what the beach at the lodge is like? Are there chaise lounges/sun beds you can relax on, under palapas etc? Or is the pool the only place for sunning? I really appreciate your help. It's really hard to tell from pictures.
