Zensa Lodge is a fantastic place to relax and enjoy life. Owners and staff very welcoming and perfect service - always with a smile. The beach is close to the lodge, but the water is really cold. The pool is a better place for a swim. The room is very nice with tasteful design. Looking forward to come back in... More

Best place to relax. Walk to the beach. Good food with all facilities. Not too much wind , even when south easter is on the mountain in Cape Town. We enjoyed a quiet weekend away. We could not have asked for better service.

Zenza Lodge is one of those places that appeals to all the senses!!!

Dear Stever, Thank you for your positive response. Indeed Scarborough is not dynamic and full of restaurants like Camps Bay. In fact 4 years ago there was only Camel Rock.

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.

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
