Thonga Beach Lodge

SKU: 13101 Category: Tag:

Described by one visitor as ‘Paradise Found’, Thonga Beach Lodge is the perfect meeting of nature, wilderness, serenity and rustic five star treatment. With a setting amongst a verdant coastal forest, just a short walk from 200km of pristine unspoilt coastline, Thonga Beach Lodge has attained the status of being one of the best dive sites in South Africa. A coral reef comparable to The Great Barrier Reef attracts visitors from all around the globe, for world-class diving in the crystal blue waters of the Indian Ocean. The lodge is situated within the Isimangaliso World Heritage Park in Northern Kwa-Zulu Natal – a World Heritage Site.

Thonga has the feel of a romantic island adventure story and the ocean view and forest view suites incorporate that theme in every room. 24 luxury bedrooms are set above the white sandy beach, offering views that simply take your breath away, as the waves lap onto the shore and mesmerize you.  Their exquisite setting is maximised with the use of glass and bleached wood, providing natural light and an airy ambiance inspired by traditional Thonga fishing village homes.  Suites are air-conditioned, with private terraces, plunge pools, a bath, shower and twin vanity.

The main lodge has been constructed with sensitivity to the natural marine forest. Guests are welcome to relax in the lounge and warm up by the fireplace on chilly evenings, and meals are served on a mezzanine level above the lounge, or in the al fresco dining room. The lodge also has two swimming pools, a cocktail bar and a rejuvenation centre, for those who love a little pampering. The food is deliciously lavish; best appreciate under the stars in the al fresco dining area.

Southern Africa’s largest fresh water lake, Lake Sibaya, is only 25km drive from Thonga Beach Lodge, providing an added attraction. Diving at Thonga Beach is beyond your wildest dreams! Mabibi offers divers the most incredible snorkelling conditions, and boasts over 1250 fish species, while scuba divers will be blown away by the game fish, sharks and bottlenose dolphins. Back on the beach, loggerhead and leatherback turtles make their way up onto the beach in the summer months to lay their eggs. Guests are invited to witness this once-in-a-lifetime spectacle with expert guides.
