This place is AMAZING There are only 4 suits here so only ever 8 people max! No fights for loungers by the pool or floating gazebos. Meals are amazing and intimate and the wine collection stunning! If you want time to read or write a book then this is the place to come! Every room has mini bar, Nespresso machine...

This amazing little hideaway is the best place I've seen for a long time. Everything is made with a lot of love and sense for beauty. You feel like coming home and never want to leave. Beautiful little spot in this amazing nature.

This place is great. We spent part of our honeymoon at Days at Sea. It was four unforgettable days of fun and sun filled with breathtaking views, beautiful beaches and dangerously delicious food. The staff were warm, friendly, and extremely hospitable. Guido and Annette, the owners, have created a sanctuary for relaxation and they were a joy to meet.

We spent a week at the beach lodge after travelling KwaZulu Natal extensively. A true hideaway which deserves to be featured among the top 100 of the world. The suites provide an extraordinary atmosphere that drives immediate relaxation and a great "away from it all" feeling. Beach access is a short walk through a jungle-like path and over a sanddune....

I love my 2 week stay at Days at Sea. Excellent service, always responsive. Luxurious environment from the entrance to the room, and the infinity pool is to die for. Will definitely come back again! Thanks to all the staff members and Annette and Guido!
