The beach lodge is an unique place in every sense. You overlook the beautiful endless beach of the Hibiscus coast and you soul immediately starts ro relax. The rooms are very well equipped and have a great european flair to them. The food is just exqusite and the owners Guido a Annette are the most loveliest people you can find.

Days at sea is an oasis of tranquility and privacy. Such an intimate and customised experience like no other. The restaurant and chef is fantastic, the wine collections are a dream and the weather is sub-tropical perfection. Lost in a world between luxury and nature at its most beautiful. No invasive crowds, just complete peace and privacy. The staff are...

Impressive seaview at the Southbroom coast with caribbean feeling, total privacy in well designed suites and a small restaurant with a super serviceteam. We enjoyed it the first time at the eastcoast of South Africa. Wonderful, we will return very soon to this extraordinary hideaway, because we like the landscape, the people and the wonderful golfcourses.

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...

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.
