I visited Days at Sea for 4 nights with some friends and we had a blast! The establishment is out of this world! The staff are welcoming and accommodating. The views from anywhere on the lodge are amazing. The cuisine (and I can't call it food) was interesting, presented in a way I hade never seen before and extremely flavoursome.... More

Thank you for the compliments for our Lodge and the team. We are proud about your opinion on the cuisine as this is really exeptional for the South Coast. There is no other place for fine dining with fresh products and a choice from a wine cellar with +- 3000 bottles and we are really fighting to keep this philosophy.... More

When we arrived in this small lodge, we felled immediately the kindness of the staff. The room was with a nice ambient of music, very clean and smelled delicious. The lounge is very inviting with good music. It is modern and because of the view it looks very spacious. We decided the first evening to have dinner here because we... More

Once again we decided to go back to our favorite spot on the South Coast, Days at Sea. For us it was the fourth time at this beautiful "home away from home" place.

Days At Sea Lodge is definitely worth a visit! It is such a wonderful location with plenty of natural beauty but the careful attention to detail in the design of the lodge and rooms make it a very unique, cosy and special place to spend peaceful and fun moments to unwind. Perfect place to either go with a group of... More

I don't believe there's words to describe the amazing 4 day stay we had at Days At Sea! After a busy year we decided to take a 4 day break and came across this little spot of paradise on the South Coast.

What a let down. Never book into the Inkawu room as the picture on the internet is not that room but a seriously watered-down version of the other rooms. The food is not fusion cuisine with a combination of Italy and France with a dash of Asia, “ as advertised nor light Mediterranean cuisine. Expect to get wet when booking... More

Dear guests, your intention to go for a refund of your payment was very obvious and you tried this in a clear way when you see what you wrote to us:"I also have to notify the establishment that depending on their response will determine our further action." Now let me correct some facts. Our website is very transparent and the... More
