Thanks to renowned architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens they have created a one of a kind lodge in the beauty of Thornybush. This one needs no words. Just enjoy browsing through the intricacy, thought and details of this amazing unique lodge.
River lodge at Thornybush is one of the most beautiful lodges I have photographed and I enjoyed every minute of shooting here. Huge suites overlooking the river bed which has regular wildlife visitors, are hidden somehow from each other making you feel like you are the only one enjoying the true beauty and solitude of the bush.
The decor is right up my alley and every corner has been paid attention to, making it feel like a homely art gallery. The food is on another level and was absolutely delicious.
This is my second time shooting at this wonderful hotel in Praslin. They recently underwent a huge revamp and have upgraded and completely changed the rooms as well as the restaurant and built a brand new jetty that juts out into the ocean, complete with a rim flow pool looking out into the vast deep blue. The hotel has always been a special one for me – the staff are always so friendly and helpful which makes a big difference in my opinion.
Coco de Mer’s view onto the ocean hosts some of the most spectacular sunsets I have ever seen. Each day the sky is painted the most incredible blues, pinks and purples and each day it is different. Watching this view from the new jetty is so special, complete with cocktail in hand of course.
