Sometimes everything fits and here this is the case. From the massages to the incredible wine cellar and lazy views over the ocean I just wanted to extend our stay.
WIth only average restaurants in the area the food here is a definite highlight!
Not enough place here to list and comment on everything, but I can only recommend everyone to come here, for golf, wine, food and beautiful beaches.

Room Tip: only 4 rooms and all are beautiful

As everyone says this is a fantastic hotel in a magical setting. The staff and the Managers are excellent and really worked hard to make our stay exceptional.
We stayed in the No1 suite and it is really comfortable. The Nespresso machine was particularly appreciated.
We also adored the beautiful pagodas next to the dining room
We loved the walk down to the beautiful beach and a brisk 40 minute walk down the beach to lunch at Mariners.
It should have 5 stars, BUT the owners need to throw a bit of money at the place: the wood window frames need replacing as do the (comfortable) loungers at the pool which are well past their sell by date.All in all a bit of updating is needed.
AND please consider just a bit of choice for dinner, after all we are the clients!
But this is still a great hotel

Room Tip: suite 1 seems by far the best

Thank you for the nice review. We really appreciate your comments. The Lodge is a very old fisherman's house and the main theme is between driftwood and modern lines. In this climate the original wood is very difficult to maintain and we do not want to varnish the wood as it turns brown. The paint on the window frames starts peeling of in this humidity and subtropical climate quickly. We maintain the whole Lodge twice a year completely. It would be a pity in our opinion to swab to aluminium on window frames and pool loungers.
Our small place has a maximum of 12 guests in our small restaurant. We hate frozen food and try to have everything fresh from our suppliers or the market every morning. We serve a set dinner with 3-4 courses plus all from our small menu because you are the clients!
Our manager explains in the morning what we can get in this rural area and you are welcome to discuss when you visit next time. We will do all efforts to make you happy!

Very Private Villa, set in a beautiful garden next to the sea (a bit of a walk through vegetation - not ideal for single female travellers.)

Not ideal for scared single female travellers. (Too isolated at night.) but perfect for couples or groups.

Very good & Interesting rooms / décor.

THE RESTAURANT is great for BREAKFAST / LUNCH but for DINNER (With such superb food, I would have liked the actual tables to be more luxurious. (The physical table - not the table setting which is superb.)

Ditto the lounge area next to the dining area. Too casual at night for the FANTASTIC FOOD. A bit of extra lux needed here.

Beautiful bar area.

Terrible cell phone signal on lower parts of property.

LUX up the Dining TABLES & casual lounge area adjacent & this will be a 5 star stay.

FANTASTIC MANAGER + STAFF !!! Flawless stay !

RECOMMEND & STAY AGAIN ? .... YES !!!

Room Tip: Rooms not next to each other, single females may prefer room 3 next to restaurant.

Thank you for the good review and your time. Yes, we are very proud of the Lodge and of the design which is awarded again by the Lilizela Award 2017 by the Tourism Minister. The Philipp Starck Tables, his famous "Bucket Chairs" and the Dedon Lounge seaters are part of our design. But we know it is always a matter of taste and we regret that you would prefer the area differently furnished.
But anyway, we would love to have you back at our place and we will compensate with special attention next time what we cannot change designwise.

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of being able to spend 5 nights at Days At Sea.
What a setting ! WOW !!!! Breathtaking.

From the moment we arrived to the unfortunate end we were treated extremely well. Marius and the team went out of their way to make our stay truly enjoyable and relaxing.

We were blessed with the most amazing weather and the setting is just breathtaking.

The breakfasts was superb and then meal was had on the first night was delicious. Love my fillet !

I would recommend Days At Sea to anyone looking to escape, truly relax and enjoys the ocean.

Thanks for a great stay.

Regards

Brendon and Claire

Days At Sea Beach Lodge is something for those who are tired of just sun, palms and the ocean. This is much more. This is luxury paradise for gourmet and art lovers. If a piece of fine art, a small disainer made chair or table makes you happy, then this is just for you. And don’t forget to think, what is really important for you. Because there is a wish tree in the backyard, check it out.
