Sala Beach House


Top of Class


Offering barefoot elegance in a tropical haven, Sala Beach House is a little gem on KwaZulu Natal's North Coast (also known as the Dolphin Coast). This luxurious boutique hotel overlooks the resplendent Thompsons Bay, nestled between the vibrant coastal towns of Salt Rock and Ballito.

The main house perches on the seafront, featuring four guestrooms and three suites. With private balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the idyllic Indian Ocean, the rooms here provide a restful space from which to harness the healing power of nature. Beach-inspired tones and natural materials complement thoughtful touches such as extra-length King-size beds, deep-soaking bathtubs, stocked beach bags and yoga mats.

There is also a self-contained three-bedroom Villa for families or groups wanting extra space and privacy. The main living area features a spacious dining / lounge area and a full kitchen, while outside the large terrace and sparkling private pool offer space to enjoy the views and sounds of the ocean.

Activities at Sala Beach House

Discreet private beach access leads to one of the area's most picturesque bays, where there is a gorgeous, sandy swimming beach and protected tidal pool. Spend the day exploring the rocky coastline, snorkel with colourful marine life and stroll upon the warm sand. Or simply relax by one of the hotel’s two swimming pools and retreat to the sun deck with a good book.

Indulge in refreshing spa treatments at Sala Beach Spa, a harmonious sanctuary for balancing mind and body. Specialist therapists deliver a wide range of wellness treatments and therapies in a peerlessly serene and scenic setting.

And as the sun sets, delight in evening sundowners around the firepit and enjoy exquisitely created dishes in the intimate restaurant.

Activities in the area include snorkelling, coastal walks, deep-sea fishing, golf, and surfing, making Sala Beach House the perfect place to create a memorable holiday and celebrate special occasions.

Just 20 minutes from King Shaka International Airport, Sala Beach House is the perfect break between safari escapes in the Zululand reserves 3 hours away.
