Jinack Lodge: Jinack Lodge

Jinack Lodge is run by an English guy and a local guy from the village.
Its a nice place located right on the beach.
Its very basic with 5 huts, each en-suite.
Food is served around a communal table at certain times of the day for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Trips can be organised around the country or the island.
A village walk is worth it.
The rooms are basic and full of various bugs, cockroaches, spiders etc but mozzie nets are provided.
Its priced in £'s.
Its £20/night B&B. Lunch is £2.50/person, dinner £3.50/person.

its still a work in progress and if the guy puts the effort in, it could turn into a cracking place.
Transfers are quite expensive so may be worth organising your own.

Theres also Madiyana lodge, about 500m up the beach. I didnt go in but it looked a little basic and run down but that would just be an assumption, although it didnt look as though anyone was staying there.

No yet available on the internet (at time of writing, Dec 2011, but due any time soon) is Djembe Fever Lodge.
The place is owned by another English guy Dave, whos been working on the project for 9 years.
It located right on the edge of the Niji village, about a 20min walk from Jinack Lodge/20min from the beach.
I would loved to have stayed here to compare it to Jinack Lodge and to just see what it was like.
You can see that Dave has put in a lot of effort in getting the place how he dreamed it would be and hence the reason why hes not 'gone live online' with it yet as its been a WIP.
Rooms are huge, en-suite and have a great deal of character.
I beleive theyre 650D (£15) for B&B.
He has a decent selction on the menu.
I get the impression it has a nice vibe to it, a real chill out vibe and great place to hang out with either Dave or other guests.
If i go back, i would give this place a try.
