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.

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!

Sven and his team were truly outstanding , went the extra mile to make our stay personalised and special . Location is probably the best in Kwazulu Natal. The whale watching was an unexpected surprise .

Fabulous location, stunning views and well appointed boutique hotel. Staff are exceptionally well trained and food was good. Rooms are comfortable and well thought out. The facilities are good.
Little bit on the pricey side for what is included compared to other resorts.

The hotel has 7 rooms all facing the Ocean. The property is exceptional. You can walk down to Thomson Bay and the beach. Food was outstanding and staff friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended and should be on anyone’s list looking for simple indulgence and relaxation

I surprised my elderly parents who don’t usually like to stay away from their home, with a night at Sala. They settled immediately upon arrival and loved every moment of our stay together. The service, attention to detail and the view are premium 👌🏻
