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

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...
