I visited Days at Sea for 4 nights with some friends and we had a blast! The establishment is out of this world! The staff are welcoming and accommodating. The views from anywhere on the lodge are amazing. The cuisine (and I can't call it food) was interesting, presented in a way I hade never seen before and extremely flavoursome....

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....

When we arrived in this small lodge, we felled immediately the kindness of the staff. The room was with a nice ambient of music, very clean and smelled delicious. The lounge is very inviting with good music. It is modern and because of the view it looks very spacious. We decided the first evening to have dinner here because we...

I don't believe there's words to describe the amazing 4 day stay we had at Days At Sea!

What a let down. Never book into the Inkawu room as the picture on the internet is not that room but a seriously watered-down version of the other rooms.
