We planned a special double birthday celebration weekend away and selected this weekend based on the availability of a very special room with a view and it's own private balcony. After many emailed confirmations including 2 confirmations about what time we were going to arrive, both Hein and Cyrille were not there when we arrived on time. We were extremely... More

We have just had an amazing weekend getaway at Zensa Lodge. The room we booked was as advertised and extremely comfortable. The owner was on hand to show us around even though we arrived after 7pm and the friendly kitchen staff prepared a tasty full on breakfast each morning. A pet friendly establishment as we were able to take our... More

Tip: Book dinner prepared by owners themselves. We had a wonderful time getting to know this interesting couple and their back story. They have a special connection with Jazz music. For us the lodge was a great place to relax. The town is very beautiful and unique. Great breakfasts!

The rooms are stunning - love the décor! And the under-floor heating in the bathroom was the cherry on top! Dinner in the dining room with the owners and a few of the other guests created such a lovely, homely atmosphere. We will definitely be back in the Summer!

Just being on the rugged coast makes you feel that you are far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Zensa lodge is a great place to recharge and relax. The staff make you feel comfortable and serve a great breakfast. The rooms are simple but comfortable but don't expect a TV and satellite TV.

This establishment is suppose to be a 4*! What a disappontment. No TV and the place needs to be renovated. We weren't welcomed properly and the breakfast was a shame! This was appauling! The room we were given was VERY small! There was only one chair in the room. the 2nd person had to sit on the bed!

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
