Staff, food, accommodation, attention to detail, spa, gym - everything surpass your expectations. This is a 'have to do'.

Whale watching from the deck of your suite or the lodge, game spotting just adds to a wonderful experience.

The spa is worth a visit as Lindi gives amazing massages! Thanks to Hennie, Adrienne, Jo-Ann, Trevor and everyone else for making this so worthwhile!

Room Tip: All the rooms are perfect. Ocean suites just add that little bit of exclusivity.

The surroundings and quality of accommodation are pure luxury but the staff really complete the enjoyment. They treat the guests as "one of the family" while looking after your every need. The spa is amazing and worth a visit for the best message ever from Lindy! Game drives are fantastic and prepare for some meals you'll never forget. Thanks to all for making our stay a memorable experience.

Oceana has the perfect location overlooking the gorgeous beaches near Port Alfred. We were staying nearby at a friend's house and just wanted to book a game drive/safari and then added on lunch afterwards as part of a deal they do. It was quite amazing! We saw all sorts of animals, our guide was very knowledgable, and just soaked up the gorgeous scenery. To top it off, our 3-course lunch was outstanding! The food was top notch and we couldn't have been more pleased with our day at Oceana. I highly recommend it and we would love to return and stay on-site.
