Situated on KwaZulu-Natal’s verdant North Coast, Sala Beach House offers the ultimate coastal escape, with 5-star service, tranquillity and wellness amongst the palm trees. A place where it feels more like staying with an old friend than it does a hotel. The main house features 4 guestrooms and 3 suites, whilst a self-contained 3-bedroom exclusive use villa boasts its own pool, living area and kitchen for those who would prefer a little more privacy. Enjoy private access to a protected tidal pool and swimming beach or explore unspoilt rocky expanses and secluded coves. The Spa provides a serene retreat, offering thoughtfully designed treatments which spark the senses and inspire connection to oneself and to nature. Activities in the area include deep sea fishing, golf, surfing and microlighting. From crashing waves to whispering wind, singing birds to the sublime sound of silence, bask in the splendour of the Dolphin Coast. 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.

Sala beach house is a haven. The staff, location and hotel exceeded all our expectations. Would 100% recommend to anyone visiting that area. Tidal pool at the far end of the beach is great for swimming as the waves on the beach make it tricky for non swimmers

We had the most indulgent spoil at Sala Beach House & Spa - the experience is faultless, the staff charming with Can Do flexibility, the setting sensational, and the Spa truly world class. Dolphins frolicking close in to land was the cherry on the top. You won't want to leave there. I could have moved in for good.

Dear Anne, Thank you for taking the time to send us this wonderful review. It was a pleasure hosting you. Our location is truly ideal, being so close to the ocean you get front row seats to the beautiful sea life. It definitely is an absolute gem. We cannot wait for your next visit to Sala! Warm Regards, Zinhle Mthembu Hotel Manager

Thank you for a lovely evening with excellent service and delicious food. The beautiful furnishings and lovely ambiance just made this such a special place to have dinner.

I would imagine lunch would be fantastic, sitting outside with such a glorious view, however the evening was special as well with the fire pit outside and comfortable seating.

I would love to come again when I next visit South Africa!

The hotel is gorgeous with 180 degree Seaviews. All the staff greet you by name and are very friendly. The rooms are spacious to say the least and the decor is very tastefully done. The spa experience was truly a highlight and certainly sets the tone for a very relaxing stay. The food was delicious and they have a great wine selection, it was simply devine.

A lot of care and attention has gone in to every detail to give a hotel that is both stylish and comfortable with a great oceanfront. Best hotel we stayed in on a two month tour around South Africa. The on site dining and bar were also very good and all the staff helpful and friendly.

Sala Beach House is a little piece of heaven with a breathtaking view of the Indian Ocean.
Our travel through South Africa ended here. After three days we didn't want to leave anymore.
Wonderful staff, great rooms and magnificent ambiance. We will return some day.

SALA is my gateway and offered me the tranquility and the best spa treatment. The staff is friendly and attentive and are able to accommodate special request. The private access is to the beach is also my favourite. I would like to recommend that they review their menu offering

A beautiful place to spend time in to recharge and be still - to soak up the lush surroundings, take in the vast sea and sky and be pampered.
The comfort and luxury of the rooms lend themselves to absolute relaxation.
A very special place that will leave you feeling inspired.

Little oasis… we had a fabulous time. Spa treatments were great but food was awful and service lacking… staff need training. We would return for another spoil. Their positioning is second to none with amazing views

A real stunner, located on a Blue Flag Beach.

Fun, vibey, excellent team, tasteful and charming.

Would we go again - without a question of doubt.

Well positioned rooms, great sea views and balcony, excellent housekeeping - crispy white linen and super lovely duvets!
