The detail

This luxury lodge is the ideal place to discover one of the very few untouched wilderness beaches in Africa. Set in the Isimangaliso Wetland Park region, the landscape consists of coastal forests, grasslands, bush, shimmering lakes and exquisite sandy beaches. The sunkissed beaches with their warm turquoise waters, offer some of the best snorkeling and off-shore scuba diving.

The spacious thatched suites are hidden in the coastal dune forest and raised on wooden stilts to ensure no harm comes to the sensitive dune soils. Inspired by Thonga architecture, the rooms have been carefully positioned to guarantee guest privacy. All rooms have open-plan bathrooms with double vanity and separate shower and toilet. Deluxe Ocean View and Family Suites have a free-standing bath.

The seven Forest View Rooms feature a large open plan bedroom with king or twin beds, en-suite bathroom with double vanity, separate shower and toilet, air-conditioning, overhead fans, mini bars, tea & coffee making facilities, safe & hair dryers, and a small deck.

The two Forest View Family Suites are ideal for families traveling with children. These suites feature two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The spacious main bedroom has either king or twin beds, an open-plan bathroom with bath, double vanity, separate toilet and shower; and a small balcony offerings views of the bush. The smaller second bedroom has two ¾ beds, en-suite bathroom with separate toilet, shower and basin; and is connected to the main bedroom by a short inter-leading passage which has doors at both ends to ensure privacy but also offers peace of mind to parents.
