“Although not a first for my family, this was my first visit to Intle. Tracy, Kate, Mario and the staff team could not have done any more to make our visit perfect. We were greeted like old friends, welcomed to use the stunning pool and served a delicious lunch; my only complaint is I found it very difficult to choose what to eat, because it all sounded so good!” TripAdvisor.

Thank you for catering to my food allergies so well. It was above and beyond our expectations. Food was excellent, staff were so kind. Happy we were able to experience such a gem like this lodge. Hopefully return one day again.” – Agtnerak TripAdvisor.
