Reviewed June 2, 2013

Oceana Beach & Wildlife Reserve is unparalleled ! The setting is amazing, the accommodation luxurious, the food excellent and the manager and team always available to meet every need. We had an amazing weekend of relaxing & pampering. Even the game were co-operative for amazing photos silhouetted against the beach !

Room Tip: I liked the fact that the Ocean facing rooms were wheelchair accessible.

The best of both worlds! Beautiful unspoilt beach and view and awesome game drive! Friendl, well trained staff, great food and stunning setting. Enjoyed the trip tremendously. Rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. Privacy and the feeling of "having it all for oneself" comes to mind. Enjoyed the fact that the natural surroundings have not been disturbed to accommodate such a beautiful venue. Thank you for a super experience.

Room Tip: Any room is great!

We approached the lodge from the beach and was amazed at the beauty and natural splendor of the area. We were met by knowledgeable staff and loaded onto a jeep that took us to the lodge. Cool bottled water awaited us and after a chat, we had a sumptuous breakfast. The food was fresh and very well prepared. The game drive was magnificent and we saw Rhino! The staff does the trick for me, as they are genuinely hospitable.
All in all, it was an amazing experience!

What an incredible place. AS soon as we walked in I was in love! The art is wonderful, the decor interesting and the furniture plush and inviting! We were shown to our amazing room which is just out of this world...and THEN there is the view!

The whole room opens onto a huge balcony overlooking the beach, the ocean AND the veld. A drinking hole frequented by rhino just below us and a wonderful ocean breeze in our hair! what more could anyone possibly want?
The bathroom was to die for, a HUGE tub, a double shower, amazing products and candles dotted around the room. Heaven!

We were served our meal on our balcony under the stars and it was divine, an amazing wine list, a great menu and a perfect setting.
The only thing we could wish for is a longer stay. We had an amazing time. We thoroughly enjoyed our early morning game drive and were thrilled to see all 4 rhino, and a lot of the animals were all in one place which is rather unique. The wind was howling and they had all found shelter in one area. To see the giraffe, zebra, buffalo, rhino and boks all standing around happily together was incredible!

The service was personal, impeccable and nothing too much trouble. A fantastic stay in the most wonderful place. We hope to be back, only for longer next time!

Room Tip: Try to get one with a view out to the ocean.

I'm not sure I would like to post this review :-). This is a very special place. Great service, kind people, beautiful accomodation, very good food. Spectacular setting. If you want to experience the magic of South Africa, this is a good start.
