"My self and my boyfriend were lucky enough to stay at Allawah for my birthday in January last year, we stayed in Hideaway Lodge.
We have been looking for somewhere to stay and have been trying to find somwhere just like Allawah, but there is no where! Your place is just so fantastic, nothing matches it!
We would love stay at Allawah again, the last stay was just so fantastic and memorable".
