This was our 3rd visit to Canelands Beach Club and Spa and we will certainly be back again. The staff are attentive without being obtrusive and the view from the patio and restaurant is breathtaking.

We were booked here as the last leg in a 3 week tour for a couple of nights before flying home. Safe to say this stay wasn't a highlight but Canelands had some tough competition.

Canelands offers stunning sea views and a beautiful ocean edge pool. The restaurants food is well presented and tasty, but very pricey if you are not from overseas. The suites are neat but not very big compared to other honeymoon suites we stayed in during our trip. They did provide a nice welcome to the room with a bottle of...

Dear Guest Thanks so much for your constructive critism. It defintely helps us grow as a Boutique hotel directly on the beach.

Canelands Beach Club and Spa is optimally located to allow guests with a sea view room an uninterrupted view of the Indian Ocean and very pleasant walks or runs along an unspoilt beach. Canelands’ restaurant (“Two Shrimps”) is phenomenal, offering a wide-ranging and excellent menu in a celebratory ambience. But, sadly, the room-services division is run in an appalling manner...

To the lovely staff at Canelands. My husband and I hosted our wedding in July this year, and we can't thank you enough. The staff was lovely and attentive. The chefs worked magic in the kitchen and topped with a gorgeous venue with beautiful views it made for the perfect weekend wedding. We can't wait to visit again.
