Is the lodge suitable for children?
Yes, it is rather well suitable for children, but we can’t prevent all risk related to the usual west African pests, flying, crawling on earth and in the water. All guest are requested to stay in clear and weeded area. Parents are to monitor their children, mainly when using story facilities with balcony or close to the shore bank. The lodge do not bear any responsibility about any accidental occurrences inside or outside the premises.

Limited, as only the restaurant and one ground floor accommodation can be reached with a wheelchair. Public washroom is not.

Pets are not permitted at the lodge or restaurant.
Can I bring my own food and drinks?
Self-catering with outside food and beverages is not allowed.
Is the lodge available for exclusive use?
The hotel is an ideal escape for groups as the entire property can be hired for private use. Please contact us for more details. We have 10 rooms and also have arrangements with nearby partner hotels if required.
Can I drink the tap water?
We have a borehole on the property that produces clear fresh water. However, as this water has not been filtered we do not recommend that you drink it. Bottled water is available for consumption. Also, despite having some reserve water, our borehole has a low yield and we ask guests to please not waste any water.
What happens to the waste water?
We have a sophisticated waste water treatment system installed on the property to ensure no waste water enters either the sea or the water table. The treated waste water is suitable to recycle and reuse in the gardens.
Are there a lot of insects?
The ocean breeze keeps most bugs away, but at certain times of the year there are mosquitoes and house flies. There are mosquito nets in all Lou Moon rooms, and we are happy to provide insect repellent if you forget your own.
Is WI-FI available in the rooms?
Due to our remote location internet connections via national mobile networks can be extremely slow. In order to remedy this we have recently had private WI-FI access installed across the resort. Free access for two devices per room is available in the restaurant area of the lodge. Additional Wi-Fi and/or in-room Wi-Fi is available on request at an additional charge. Please check with reception for the latest per hour rates and password.
Are there TVs in the rooms or common areas?
Lou Moon Lodge encourages rest and relaxation in a peaceful setting, surrounded by nature, and is therefore a TV free environment.
Do you provide beach towels?
