"Part of the family at Bumi Hills"
We were given a free room upgrade because the lodge was really quiet. 3 things we reported were wrong in our room were fixed immediately so no complaints there. Rather surprised that there was no power between 9am and 6pm and air con went off at 5am. It didn't worry us and we charged our appliances in the office.
Slightly limited breakfast with tinned fruit again but we had cooked breakfasts and the waiter, Sheckie, was the best waiter we had all holiday - and Jaison was good too. The diffidence of the waiters at Ilala was not present at all here. Food very good although the difficulty of getting supplies to the Lodge was apparent but we were prepared to overlook this. A little annoying to have to keep signing for the inclusive drinks - wine and beer and soft drinks. Would be better just to make this an all inclusive resort.
All in all we felt part of the family. The entire staff turned out to see us off by plane again and waved goodbye. This was the hotel that we were not expecting to enjoy so much but it surpassed our expectations. Internet excellent around the reception area.
Spa therapist very capable and pleasant.
My husband was a little concerned by the age of the tiny planes that Bumi Air use - a 1968 Cessna with one engine returned us to Harare. No complaints with the flights and they fitted in with our plans when we requested an earlier flight to Harare." See all these reviews: 4n in Zimbabwe; 4n in Zanzibar
"Bumi Hills Safari Lodge review"
"Return to Bumi"
Our room was large, airy and very comfortable and clean. There was plenty of storage space, a safe and a refrigerator.
Service was excellent in every way. Even though there was a hen-party, followed by a lavish wedding taking place, our needs were never neglected and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful whilst under pressure.
All meals were beautifully presented and delicious with a good choice of dishes.
In just two days we fitted in two game drives, a game walk, two lake cruises and a visit to the local village and school. The guides were very enthusiastic, informative and knowledgable and conscious of our comfort.
The Lodge has a most beautiful infinity pool which was immaculately clean and there is a poolside bar serving drinks. There is a television room for those that want to keep up with the soccer scores! There are many bird and mammal books around for guests to use." See all these reviews: 10n in Zimbabwe
