GOOD TO KNOW:
It is in our interest to provide the highest standard and safety. However Promised Land Lodge's team wishes you to know that for fishermen it’s essential to have access to the sea and freedom to move around, any beach fronts are declared to be a public area and therefore we like you to take notice ahead on so called beach boys and small vendors that try their luck here and there. In case that you like to engage in an activity outside of the hotel we reserve the right to withdraw from any responsibility you may encounter on any outside excursions.
