What our guests are saying about us
We had an awesome time at Balistidae. The layout of the house, with access to the beach and tons of activities is unique.
What I loved most is the privacy, the setting of the lodge in the forest, endless unspoilt beaches and mind blowing sun sets...
Balistidae lodge is really easy to get to. The food was amazing – fresh prawns and seafood like ive never had before. The fishing was so fun for a novice like me.
The lodge has not missed a trick! Attention to detail, beautiful furnishings, spacious rooms, all the creature comforts you want and need. Definitely coming back soon...
The family simply loved our stay. Friendly staff, amazing accommodation, lekker pol, ice cold 2M beer and activities to keep us busy for days. #takemeback
