The Lodge

The lodge is built among the dunes along the beach, nestled between bush and palm trees and with carefully chosen spots to maximize privacy and seaviews whilst maintaining proximity of the rooms to the lounge, restaurant and the beach. The buildings are constructed on elevated wooden decks with timber and roll-up canvas walls under a roof thatched with local makuti. Wooden walkways lead from the rooms to the Lodge’s reception area and restaurant, with a lounge and a spacious deck, overlooking the palm grove and the sea.
The lodge is entirely solar powered – ensuring a light environmental footprint.

The Restaurant

Our menu is inspired by what is in season and available at the local markets and shops. For fresh fish or crayfish we like to rely on the local spear-fishermen. Whilst mango, pawpaw or avocado are seasonal, our coconuts are available all year round!
For breakfast we serve cereal, yoghurt and fruit, rolls or home-baked bread with honey, jam, peanut butter, marmite or cheese. Order your English breakfast with eggs, bacon, beans and tomato. For lunch we go light, usually with a salad, sandwiches or a burger. Dinner is served family style at our large communal table or as a buffet. We usually prepare a fish or meat dish with different side servings and salad.

The Beachbar and Pool

A short walk from the restaurant will take you to our beach bar and rim-flow plunge pool. Here, you can stretch out on our locally made loungers whilst enjoying 360 degree views over the endless coastline and a sea of palm trees of the hinterland.
If the weather is right, we invite for an early afternoon braai on the pool deck. Our bar is stocked with local beers, soft drinks, a selection of South African wines and spirits, and everything you need for the good old G&T for when the sun sets…

Our Rooms

Casa de Mel is the most secluded of all our rooms, approximately 150m away from the restaurant and lounge. It is a double room with king size or twin beds, mosquito nets, ensuite bathroom with separate toilet and outdoor shower, large deck with hammock and sea views. The room can accommodate one extra bed for an accompanying child.

Casa Tartaruga is our family room that can accommodate four people in either two king size or twin beds. The room is open plan with a canvas screen between the beds as a visual seperation, but otherwise open. It is therefore ideal for a family with children or a group of four really good friends who don’t mind sleeping dorm-style. It is equipped with mosquito nets, ensuite bathroom facilities with separate toilet and outdoor shower, large deck with hammock and 180 degree sea views. A fifth bed could be accommodated for a family of five.

Casa Baleia is a double room with king size or twin beds, mosquito nets, ensuite bathroom with separate toilet and outdoor shower, large deck with hammock and sea views. The room is approximately 80m from the main house and restaurant.

Casa Madeira is our friendly wooden house, perched on top of a dune with 360° views. It comes with queen size bed, mosquito net, ensuite bathroom with separate toilet and shower, as well as a wooden deck with hammock and sea views.
