Stayed at this Promised land from 27th Feb 2017 to 3rd March 2017. After climbing Kilimanjaro Its the perfect place to chill, soak up the sun either by the poll or in one of the hammocks. Shepy is a great host and his staff were pretty awesome too. Loved every minute of my stay here. Hakuna Matata

Promised Land 53€ You get what you pay for. Friendly staff, private huts with private outdoor bathroom, salt water shower)No A/C very noisy fan ( impossible to sleep) dogs barking,roster crowing, motor boats!) perhaps not quite our scene! Food correct and pool bar fine. Nice pool, access to the sea but no sandy beach. Atmosphere fire pit ,good sunsets

I would recommend this place as somewhere to stay, but it's best to eat in a neighbouring hostel. It's a very friendly, and a spacious hostel, with a nice pool, and lots of hammocks/seats. The bar is sociable, but the music stops at a reasonable time. We stayed in a $60 a night room (Bungalow), which was basic, but clean,...

We stayed for two nights and had a great experience. The personal was helpful, the pool clean, there was beach volley if you wanted to play and stairs to access the water. There was one vegetarian dish for dinner/lunch, and they could make it vegan. But the variety of the vegetarian dishes were minimal for each menu. The room and...

Promised land is such an amazing place to chill out and relax. The lodge is situated on a high rock ledge right on the water but is still a great beach resort with sand everywhere, palm umbrellas, a volleyball net, slackline, pool and lots of loungers. The When the tide is high, you can swim straight off the ledge, but...

We stayed here for 3 nights and we absolutely loved it. It is a super relaxed place for just hanging out for a while as it's a bit far from anything else. In saying that, you do tend to eat all your meals here. We spent our days in the pool, reading, playing volleyball and walking along the beach at...

we spent 3 nights here and it was absolutely amazing, food is really good, homemade and tasty. Location is very convenient, 25min drive from Paje beach, dolphin swim is just 10min boat ride from the resort. the only bad thing is the running water which is very salty, but you can get used to it:)

Beautifull view, friendly staff. The rooms are typical, decorated. The music was really good, always Reggae music. They are beautiful doggs on the lodge. The restaurant is really typical food, the menu is not very large but enough.
