"The Swell Eco Lodge is furnished with such a wonderful taste and it is equipped very well. The view from our deck was breathtaking. Unfortunately we had just 2 nights. We would recommend at least a 3 night stay, because the area offers a lot of walks and activities. The staff was extraordinary friendly and helpful. And a last thing to mention is, that you can order fresh bread and pizza. Both were very nice. Thank you for an unforgettable experience."

We absolutely love it here at Swell and honestly think this by far the best place to stay in Mdumbi. It’s literally 5 minutes from the beach, quiet, beautiful, and the rondawels are so well built and decorated. Loved every minute and we can’t wait to go back!

Wow, this was simply spectacular in every aspect. Beautiful accomodation and surroundings. Super friendly and helpful staff. This was my 3rd time to visit the Mdumbi, and 1st time Swell Eco Lodge, and I will be back for sure!
