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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

We stayed at Zenza Lodge as part of a three week tour of the Western Cape. We were made to feel very welcome and were shown around the delightful property to our clean and comfortable accommodation. The public areas of the Lodge were a bit more relaxed than some of the pristine accommodation we had stayed in on our trip,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located at the border of Cape Point National Reserve and a one minute walk from the beach, Zensa Lodge in Scarborough is the ultimate hideaway around Cape Town. It's a place of relaxation, surrounded by beauty and nature, mountains and oceans. Zensa's 7 guest rooms, all in calming white, are models of simplicity, reflecting the unspoiled nature of the Cape Peninsula. With design furniture on pure white floors, crisp white bed linen, they are suffused with a feeling of comfort and style. Each room features an en-suite bathroom with bath, separate shower and walk-in wardrobe. Watch the sunset from your private terrace or patio. Have an early morning stroll on the pristine beach, take a hike up the mountain or in the National Reserve or cycle along the breathtaking coastline of the Cape. Scarborough and its surrounding beaches are world renowned for wave, wind and kite surfing. Hein Van de Geyn and Cyrille Carreon are happy to welcome you to their little haven and aim to make your stay with them an unforgettable one. The large private garden gives Zensa Lodge a feel of spaciousness and tranquility. The pools, jacuzzi and sauna are there to give you all the opportunities to forget about life's hustle and bustle and get in touch with your inner peace. Music is never far away since Hein and Cyrille are both musicians at heart. Great food and a good glass of wine all add to a pure sense of well being. Children are more than welcome at Zensa Lodge. The trampoline, tree hut and of course the close proximity to the beach make Zensa an ideal spot for children of all ages. Zensa Lodge, an oasis in one of the most special areas in the world. We would love to welcome you and share our wonderful place with you. ... more   less
