Simply amazing. Having travelled all over the world and had an opportunity to stay at some amazing places but Oceana has to be at the top of the list. Situated on a game reserve with zebra, sable, kudu and much more ocean suite overlooking the ocean is just stunning. Great value for the American dollar same room in Cabo would...

On our way from Port Alfred, we stopped by here for breakfast. Oh my gosh I have never seen such a wide variety of food for breakfast. I ate until my stomach hurt. There was all sorts of food & drinks, even champagne! After such a big breakfast, we spent the whole day enjoying ourselves by the pool side and...

The most luxurious accommodation. Very spacious. Most beautiful beach, all to yourself. Great food. Luckily a gym with the most beautiful view to work it all off. Very attentive staff and service. Staff went beyond the call of duty to accommodate all requests. Game drives are average. Stay for a few days.

What a great experience and rest! We didn't want to leave!! The stay was just what we were needing. Everything was great, yummy food, friendly staff, luxury spacious rooms, excellent service, pampering spa treatments, interesting game drive, panoramic views etc. We will definitely be back soon - Thank you for spoiling us like you did.

Our room was incredible...plush, relaxing,wonderful. The food was great. ONLY ... we were in room 1 and the dinning staff moved chairs above us and woke us too early. It appears to be wooden floors above us... something needs to be done about that issue. Otherwise, everything was wonderful...

Hi Elaine Thanks for the kind words. The lodge suites can be a bit noisy and we are looking at a solution for these. Next time you visit I would highly reccomend one of our Ocean Suites as these are truly fantastic. We look forward to welcoming you back. Regards Chris & the Oceana Team

As the name suggest with Oceana Beach and Wildlife Reserve you get the best of both Worlds, you live in the Wildlife Reserve with its rustic authentic African decor and luxury and you embrace the sea views from your balcony. From arrival to departure was an unforgettable experience, one must simply experience to really understand honest, true, warm hospitality. Jordan...

Oceana is an unforgettable experience. It's special, intimate, and restful. One can see wildlife and ocean from every vantage point. Sunset game drives with a Sundowner were my favorite. My breath was taken away every day and the beauty of the place actually became richer day after day. The room was incredible, the staff impeccable. We brought our family and...

We booked this trip on a whim and had no expectations going in. We were trying to decide between a relaxing beach vacation or a safari. We stumbled on this place and realized we could have both. While it was cold and not the best time of the year to be on the beach, we weren't the least bit disappointed....
