Travellers' Choice
Overlooking the site where the Nahoon River meets the warm Indian Ocean, the Blue Lagoon lies nestled in indigenous, sub-tropical foliage. Easily accessible and close to central East London and inland areas, the hotel offers tranquility and seclusion from the bustle of city life. Our hotel offers a delightful blend of stylish garden facing hotel rooms or modern luxury two bedroom lagoon facing suites (self catering available), with easy access to the river and beaches. Self catering suites are also available. The Blue Lagoon offers the Highlander Restaurant, which is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Highlander Restaurant has an enviable reputation of excellent wines, food that roars with flavor and service that whispers. Our Highlander Bar and Cocktail Lounge, overlooking the picturesque Nahoon river, against the river bank, makes this the perfect setting for sun downers.

We came in to celebrate our anniversary and we couldn't have gone to another place. Everything was perfect from reception to when we left. The sea view was absolutely beautiful and we would without a doubt come back

Very noisy parties in the parking area in front of my room. The people come from the hotel's bar then they party and play music in front of the rooms that aren't facing the ocean, the managers don't do anything about it and neither do the security. People break bottles, play loud music, scream and shout and drink, it is so loud that it feels like they are in my room with me, i could not sleep until 4am when they finally left. Although we are in a pandemic there is no social distancing in the bar/restaurant as they seem to try and fill it up to the maximum and them allow even more people to enter and do not enforce people to wear their masks and so it seems like this is a hot spot for Covid-19. The only good thing about this place is that the staff are very friendly and hard working. The management and security need to up their game. If you value sleep and relaxation I would not recommend this place for you.

A pity we could only spend a couple of nights here! Great river views and just a few steps down to the fantastic "wild" beach. Also a pleasant, spacious pool area. We had a 2 bed apartment, which gave us lots of space to relax, as well as a sit out area with dassies a couple of metres away! I guess some might say that the rooms are a touch dated, but clean and generally well maintained so no problem at all. Breakfast good, and bar terrace overlooks the river. We had lunch twice: all dishes very good, and a couple of outstanding lunchtime deals. Only small problem seemed to be a towel shortage: used towels (room and pool) were removed and not replaced until later. We would definitely return if in the area again.
