We stayed at Ichibi Lodge in April of this year and what a wonderful experience it was! The lodge is set in the most beautiful, peaceful surroundings - the ideal place to chill out and forget all your troubles. Just sitting out on the verandah watching the fish eagles circle the lake is enough to relax anyone.
The food is fantastic - cooked by the hostess Linda, with evening drinks and hospitality provided by the host Marcus.
The Lodge is small and intimate - with only three double suites available - each suite is of the highest standard - designed and decorated by Linda, all of the bespoke furniture was made by Marcus.
We were surprised on our first morning when we were greeted by the peacock who lives wild on their land but who visits the lodge twice a day to be fed seeds.
They also have a fantastic collection of marmosets - we were lucky enough to be allowed into their compound to feed them - an amazing experience.
Ichibi is an amazing place - a paradise oasis - I can't wait to go back!
