This resort is located on the KZN South Coast, and offers excellent value for money. The suites are well designed, bright , airy and have excellent sea views. It is also very cosy, as there are only 4 suites and you are treated individual with much care and understanding. Service all round was brilliant. We had our breakfast, lunch and... More

We stayed for 6 nights in the Honeymoon Suite. Johan and his team were outstanding, and no request was ever a problem. Our suite was beautifully decorated with attention to every detail, and most importantly SO comfortable. Views are out of this world! Nothing matches having breakfast served to you on your suite's terrace overlooking the ocean. Molly's food was... More

Wonderful, beautiful place with beach access. The service was great. We had breakfast outside while watching whales in the ocean, we had a five star meal in the evening in the dinning area. The rooms was giant and the shower unbelievable, the shower was a whole room by itself! Very luxurious, we will definitely stay again.

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
