Scarborough is not far away from the mother city and very close to the national park Cape Point. The beach and the view to the Misty Cliffs...

My husband, my kids and I had the best, most relaxing stay at Zensa Lodge! We just absolutely loved the tranquility, and the kids loved the big, clean swimming pool. We can't wait to go back, hopefully soon!

Zensa Lodge is not an ordinary hotel. It has a unique combination of luxury and simplicity. The hosts, Hein and Cyrille, give you a very warm welcome. The atmosphere is brilliant. The green grass is lush. The rooms are beautifully white and comfortable.

From the moment we walked onto the Zensa Lodge site, we had an immediate feeling of home comfort - the grounds and rooms, the staff, and the owners made us feel very welcome. It near an amazing beach, and a small town with a few restaurants with great local foods. Highly recommended!

We enjoyed the quiet, peaceful accommodation at Zensa lodge. It was clean and the complementary coffe/tee as well as bathroom accesories well stocked. We stayed in a loft room overlooking the mountains. Breakfast was good but a little slow as the lodge was fully booked. Complimentary dinner was not so good as the lodge decided on a barbeque for all...

Dear "rolidt", Thank you kindly for your feedback. We are happy you liked our rooms, and the general atmosphere of tranquility. Indeed the eggs at breakfast can be a bit slow sometimes.

Facilities at Zensa Lodge guesthouse are most comfortable and conveniently located near the beach. The central location allows exploration of coastal drives, walks and the beauty of nature. The establishment serves an outstanding quality breakfast. The delicious Saturday dinner is not only substantial but intimate and accompanied with an outstanding, yet impromptu, musical performance!! :)

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located at the border of Cape Point National Reserve and a one minute walk from the beach, Zensa Lodge in Scarborough is the ultimate hideaway around Cape Town. It's a place of relaxation, surrounded by beauty and nature, mountains and oceans. Zensa's 7 guest rooms, all in calming white, are models of simplicity, reflecting the unspoiled nature of the Cape Peninsula. With design furniture on pure white floors, crisp white bed linen, they are suffused with a feeling of comfort and style. Each room features an en-suite bathroom with bath, separate shower and walk-in wardrobe. Watch the sunset from your private terrace or patio. Have an early morning stroll on the pristine beach, take a hike up the mountain or in the National Reserve or cycle along the breathtaking coastline of the Cape. Scarborough and its surrounding beaches are world renowned for wave, wind and kite surfing. Hein Van de Geyn and Cyrille Carreon are happy to welcome you to their little haven and aim to make your stay with them an unforgettable one. The large private garden gives Zensa Lodge a feel of spaciousness and tranquility. The pools, jacuzzi and sauna are there to give you all the opportunities to forget about life's hustle and bustle and get in touch with your inner peace. Music is never far away since Hein and Cyrille are both musicians at heart. Great food and a good glass of wine all add to a pure sense of well being. Children are more than welcome at Zensa Lodge. The trampoline, tree hut and of course the close proximity to the beach make Zensa an ideal spot for children of all ages. Zensa Lodge, an oasis in one of the most special areas in the world. We would love to welcome you and share our wonderful place with you. ... more   less
