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.

Exceptional everything. The staff are incredible and nothing is too much for them. We adore this spot! A special mention to Sven, Shaun, Natalie and Muke for always going above and beyond. A blissful 2 days.. so much so we’ve already booked to return.

Gorgeous location. Beautifully appointed accommodation. Attention to detail next level. Friendly, warm staff. We loved our break. The KZN coast is perfect in the winter months with lovely weather and a great escape from the cold.

Sometimes 5 Stars isn't enough.We were impressed with the warm welcome , and as you walk through the terrace and into the building, you know that you're in a stunningly beautiful place. There are only 7 rooms in this exquisitely designed hotel. The rooms are superb, a reflection of the tastefully designed and decorated spaces throughout.
The management and staff are just perfect.
We totally relaxed during our stay, absorbing the beach and ocean views, We strolled along the beach and in the evenings had lovely meals.
A wonderful few days that we will always remember fondly.

Wow, what an exceptional experience over our 2-night stay! We stayed at Sala between safari lodge stays and were blown away by the warm greeting upon our arrival, the property, the beach setting, our room, the decor in the common areas, the gardens and the attentive staff and their wonderful service.
Our only regret was that in advance we had organized dinner the first night of our stay at an off-property restaurant. When we had dinner at Sala the second night, we discovered how wonderful their fine dinning is, and learned that to ensure the quality of the experience, they only serve hotel guests. We regretted not having dinner both nights at Sala.
After we checked out and were en-route to our next destination, we realized we had forgotten important travel documents in our room's safe. The staff went out of their way to help get them to us at our next destination.
Sala Beach House has earned our highest ratings possible in all categories. A huge thank you to Sven, Shaun, Amy and the entire Sala Beach House team!
