The lodge has 20 rooms in blocks of two with thatched roofs, private patios and en suite bathrooms with showers. Refurbed, the decor went from gaudy African in style to classic and contemporary. It's distinct, modern and refined in light grays and neutrals with raw wood accents. It's really quite nice. A large pool is the focal point of the living area, itself an enormous open-fronted thatch building that houses the restaurant and bar. The view of the mountains from here is worth several gin and tonics.
A feature of the area, and indeed the lodge's own slogan, is the numerous ancient rock art sites that add to the atmosphere of timeless serenity at Ai Aiba Lodge. Guided tours, day trips and walking trails make the most of these fascinating petroglyphs.
