The space

It's a small lodge, run by your hostess Danita who wants you to feel at home. She offers you all the comfort you need in a beautiful, quiet environment.

Guest access

Prices include breakfast, taxes and service charge and are based on a single room. We charge extra costs for every extra person. We have one bigger room, also to be used by two adults and a child under 12 years of age.

The palapa's (cabins) are situated in nature with the pool a few steps away. In the beautiful, tropical garden there's a shared, open kitchen and BBQ area.
The beach is a 2 minute drive away.
We are flexible, feel free to share your wishes with us.

Interaction with guests

We base our interaction with the guests on their preference. Of course we will serve breakfast everyday, so we have at least one moment of contact per day. Because Danita also lives on the same property, she will be around a lot. Feel free to ask her to take you on a tour of the island!! We love to give you advice on how to make the best of your trip to Curaçao.

Other things to note

Mondi Lodge is a newly build mini lodge. There are only three cabins so the atmosphere is very private, cozy and comfortable. Danita is ready to spoil her guests! Danita's phone number is +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). Feel free to call whenever you need us!

This is an excellent place to spend your stay in Curacao. Excellent Warm welcome and could not wish for more. Breakfasts are a pure daily delight in beautiful gardens and wildlife. Danita and her staff work very hard to make every thing easy and accessible. The lodges are very comfortable with private outdoor space and a real feeling of being surrounded by Caribbean nature. Love this place!

I loved staying at Mondi Lodge, I wish we had been there longer. Danita made us feel welcome and at home. The palapas are comfortable, clean, and relaxing. Breakfasts were delicious! We enjoyed swimming in the pool. Danita makes sure her guests have an easy stay such as lending us a local cell phone to use while we were there, recommending and mapping out places for snorkeling and restaurants, letting us leave our luggage there to do some exploring on our last day after we checked out. Other details are great too - the art decorating the palapas, murals on some exterior walls, and the mosaics that Danita made. I'd like to go back again in the future!

The palapas offer everything you need and having an outdoor living room is very nice. There are mosquito nets in the windows and over the bed. Danita and the whole staff were very nice and made us feel welcome. Barbro had some good tips for good restaurants and also treated our mosquito bites with fresh Aloe Vera. It was a very pleasant stay and we would love to come back! Stay here, you won't regret!

Danita is the best host you can wish for. She really goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable. We had some issues during our stay, and Danita went way beyond what she is expected to do for her guests. She really made all the difference to our stay. I love her three dogs, but just keep an eye on your food when preparing food outside :-) The breakfasts are wonderful; everyone we met were extremely nice. The palapa is very nice, and I love the outdoor area. I will miss the pool! The location is very central; it is easy to get to Willemstad and everywhere else on the island really. Danita and her staff provide all the information you may need. In short, I highly recommend Danita's place.

What a wonderful place to stay! Very nice palapas to stay in with everything you need to feel comfortable in a beautiful oasis. The location is convenient and very close to the airport and city centre. You need a car to get to the closest supermarket and restaurants. The people at the Mondi Lodge are very friendly and made us feel instantly at home! And the breakfast is the best we had in a long time (make sure you order the special!). Thanks a lot Danita!

We had the pleasure of staying in the Tortuga palapas at Mondi Lodge from March 20-27. Tired of all-inclusive resorts, we were looking for something different and Mondi Lodge certainly fit the bill. Waking up to the morning sounds of nature in a rustic setting was a great start to the day. Danita and staff were very attentive to our needs and offered great advice on things to do while we were in Curaçao. We enjoyed meeting other guests during our stay and made full use of the pool and shared kitchen facilities. There was nothing better than buying fresh fish at the market and coming home to a great BBQ. The breakfasts are out of this world. We had to skip lunch every day. We were there for Easter and Danita and her mother served a surprize menu — just their way of making you feel special. I would not hesitate to recommend Mondi Lodge to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday. Make sure to rent a car and Danita will happily provide advice on things to do while in Curaçao.

We had the most wonderful stay at Mondi Lodge. Danita, Stephany, George and Tito made us feel like part of the family. My two year old daughter didn't want to leave the premesis. We loved the garden with its colourful flowers, birds and enormous butterflies. There was even a nest with baby hummingbirds. The lovely dogs walking around, the funny donkies. The hammock. Gardener Tito picked flowers for my little girl and painted her handprint on a wall there. She hugged him bigtime when we left. I enjoyed the outside kitchen, refreshing pool and outside shower enormously. The palapas are stunning. Good airconditioning, big fridge stuffed with nice drinks, clean towels, soap and shampoo, rooms are cleaned and beds made daily by Selma. Danita and Stephany make the most delicious breakfasts for you every day. They will help you with everything. Danita arranged a car for us and when I locked the key inside she made sure someone came to open it. It is very central, near beaches, supermarkten, cash machine, but also Willemstad isn't far away. Very good point from which to discover the island..or just stay there and never leave the little haven they created.

Hi, I am Danita. I'm 31 years old and recently moved back from Holland to my birth island Curaçao. Together with my family I built a small lodge, surrounded by nature, on the grounds where a big part of my family grew up. I made a career switch and am super excited to start this new adventure!
