Malonda Lodge is run by a team of over twenty talented men and
women: Cooks, gardeners, waiters, house-keepers, managers, everyone
working together every day of the week to make your visit a truly
unique experience. Like many things in this world, it all began
with a dream.
In 1997, Grace discovered a unique piece of land close to Pointe-Noire:
A true Paradise facing the ocean, the sunsets, with an amazing nature.
Yet it was absolutely wild: No water, no power, very few resources
nearby, a rough road. There were many hurdles to the creation of
Following her vision and her amazing will, everything was built
from ground up: The actual bricks that make the walls, the hand-carved
designed doors and cabinets, lamps, chairs and tables, the 100 feet
master piece swimming pool, the restaurant, the bar, and the 27 bungalows.
Each structure was designed in the shape of a sea living creature,
a shellfish, fish or plant: The cocktail bar as a shell, the restaurant
as a large tortoise, the bungalows as small tortoises, the swimming
pool as a sea weed, the pool bar as a crab, the reception as a star-fish.
A few years ago, her husband Gérard joined her in this exciting
Malonda Lodge, now a luxury retreat destination and luscious dining
hangout creates unforgetable memories to many locals and travelers.
