We arrived at Days at Sea exhausted and met with the most generous and warm welcome over the intercom. That warmness was continued from our reception and throughout our stay. All the staff are attentive from Monita who received us to Prudence, Patience, Patrica and Nakita who made sure we were given the time and space to relax and enjoy...

"Time is our gift to you!" the introductory e-mail said, and so it was. What a gift! We stayed in Inkawu and it was perfect. So, too, was the syrupy, laid-back feeling (what I miss the most about my home province of KwaZulu-Natal), and all the thoughtfulness in both the room and the way everything worked. The other reviews have...

My mother and I stayed for one night and we stayed in the superior suite. The decor is quite different but it suits the vibe of the place which is very contemporary.

We spent two fantastic days at "Days at Sea" a few months ago. We had an awesome stay! Beautiful Hideaway on the clean white beach. The lodge was the highlight of our trip.

Guido & Annette are delightful and engaging hosts, genuinely warm and with a taste for the better things in life. They have created a luxury guest lodge with an 'edge', underpinned with designer chic. Luxury yes but a contemporary luxury, not a deep sumptuous luxury. They are ably supported by Taylor and Thys. We spent 5 lovely nights in this...

What a pleasure that you enjoyed your stay so much. It was a bit early for the Sardine Run, now they are coming. You see plenty humpback whales at present and our guests are watching them every day from their terraces or our Gazebos. The whole team thanks you so much for your generosity and kind attention.
