Thoroughly Thrilled with Ilita!
We were thoroughly thrilled with Ilita Lodge! Perched high up on a hill, Ilita Lodge delivers splendid views of the ocean & the Great Brak River,, wonderful comfort, security & fabulous food! The only disappointment is that the GPS takes you on a very long un paved road to reach your destination, so go the other route! Otherwise we would definitely rebook there again! Friendly & helpful staff only make this lodge even more comfortable…

It is off the beaten path without being too far out. It is only 5 minutes from the N2, but far enough away to feel like a country cottage. The views are absolutely spectacular and the service is as good as any place I have visited. As a world traveler I would say this place is a must stay. In fact, we have already booked our next stay in May.

I will be back!
Ilita is absolutely beautiful. The view from my room was spectacular. The shower and facilities were amazing. Having breakfast on the patio overlooking the sea was also a highlight. Thank you so much. I loved every minute.
