A truly top-notch place to stay! Super-friendly people, stunning surroundings, great atmosphere and wonderful food! I stayed at Zensa Lodge 4 days just a while ago, and was completely overwhelmed about the beauty and the relaxed mood over there. They provide excellent meals, and they even have their own bakery, so you couldn't possibly find better and fresher bread anywhere... More

Stayed for a few days and had an amazing time - Hein and Cyrille are perfect hosts, and the feeling you get here is not of being in a hotel, but of being a welcome guest in somebody's beautiful home. The complex is set around lovely grounds, so a part from the communal feeling of the central area, you have... More

Zensa Lodge is not a hotel - it's a home where you are welcome with open arms. Pristine beaches and nature reserves are at your doorstep for walking, cycling, or just enjoying the raw outdoors. The rooms are simply and tastefully done in white, light, wood with warmth as the cornerstone. And the hosts - what can I say? Incredible... More

We only stayed at Zensa for one night, as part of a road trip around the Cape, but had a lovely time. The weather was overcast and sometimes stormy, but this made for a very dramatic seascape on our walks on the nearby beach, and made using the sauna on a slightly chilly evening all the more enjoyable. The room... More

Excellent place to relax - far away from everything - with room for privacy - or comfortably sit on the garden porch to gather with the owner and his family or other guests around. The property is large - and feels spacious - also within the fresh private lodges. The views are perfect - as the property is located between... More

For a weekend of fun under the sun, try hiring the bicycles on offer and use them to explore the Kommetjie and Scarborough area. It's great fun! You have several options if you are looking for places to explore nearby while staying at Zensa. With Simons Town just over the mountain and Kommetjie, Misty Cliffs and Scarborough it promises to...

Management were helpful and friendly all along, providing us with internet and printing facilities for our check in and boarding passes... More

I absolutely adored our stay at Zensa and didn't want to leave. The rooms are beautifully decorated and pristine yet cozy. Dinners were excellent and prepared with love. The whole place is really a labour of love. Heijn and Cyrille are so wonderful and attended to our needs while respecting our privacy as well. We will most definitely return and... More
