Thonga Beach Lodge is set on the beautiful coastline of Maputuland in KwaZulu-Natal.
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.
The three Ocean View Rooms feature a spacious open plan bedroom with king or twin beds, a bathroom with double vanity, separate shower and toilet; and a small deck offering various spectacular views of the ocean.
The Deluxe Ocean View Suite features a spacious open plan bedroom with a kingsize bed, bathroom with bath, double vanity, separate shower and toilet; and an elevated deck that offers spectacular ocean views and a private plunge pool.

The suite features two bedrooms each with an en-suite bathroom, an expansive deck area, and a private plunge pool. The large open plan main bedroom has a king size bed, full bathroom with bath, shower and double vanity. The second bedroom is smaller with two ¾ beds and en-suite shower and toilet.
