Who We Are


Ranis Lodge is the realization of a dream from Anis Abidin and Reinhold Nagler, lifelong hoteliers with more than 40 years experience in hotels such as Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, Peninsula, to name a few. Following a career that took us literally to every continent, we bought our slice of paradise in Anis’ homecountry in 2012 and started to create our vision of the perfect blend of hideaway, island magic and embracing of nature. With the passionate help of our little daughter Ayesha Sofia, friends and family, we created Ranis Lodge by digging/planting/building over three years into a unique blend of resort, orchard and mini-farm that also happens to be our family home.

We have decided that it was time to settle down and to fulfill our life's dream, which we did by creating Ranis Lodge. Here we carry out all our pastimes and, besides taking care of our daughter and guests, spend our days gardening, nurturing the fruit orchard and raising livestock.

Considering our past, it is needless to say that we are passionate hosts and it is our mission to please our guest and make their stay at Ranis Lodge a memorable one. We are looking forward to welcoming you and sharing the tranquility and peace that we are so blessed to enjoy each day
