Large coastal Milkwood trees set the scene for the ultimate beach experience at this Elephant Coast accommodation. Carefully constructed into the coastal dune forest, Thonga Beach Lodge takes full advantage of its incredible position while being in complete harmony with the environment.
The dining area – a large thatched 'rondavel' - opens on to an expansive wooden deck, where guests can enjoy the Elephant Coast's sultry weather and the lodge's sumptuous meals. Most meals will be served al fresco or guests can head for the beach and dine by candlelight on the shores of the Indian Ocean.
The lounge, with its comfortable couches and a cosy fireplace, is the perfect place to unwind after a day at the beach. Located upstairs from the dining room, it offers spectacular views of the beach as well as the incredible forest surrounding the lodge. It's the ideal spot to relax with a sundowner or catch a breathtaking sunrise over a steaming mug of coffee.
To beat the midday heat, guests can take it easy beside the lodge's swimming pool or enjoy a delicious cocktail at the bar. For those needing a little pampering, the lodge also has a spa room where guests can revitalise body, mind and soul.
The spacious, thatched suites are hidden in the coastal dune forest and raised on wooden stilts to ensure no harm comes to the sensitive dune soils. Inspired by Thonga architecture, the rooms have been carefully positioned to guarantee guests complete privacy and most rooms offer extensive views of the ocean and surrounding bush from private balconies.
Luxuriously decorated, the rooms exude a romantic ambiance. Bleached wood, glass and natural materials have been wisely used to create an open, airy feel. The en-suite rooms have a bathroom with bath, shower and twin vanity. Each suite is also fully air-conditioned.
