    I visited Hakuna Matata last weekend with a group of friends and was awestruck by the beautiful situation – sparkling lake on one side, and stunning mountains on the other. We arrived late in the day, but the owners Irma and Willie made us so welcome, and went out of their way to prepare a lovely meal for us. The beach is gorgeous, and the bathrooms are amazing!
