Great place to stay, will definitely go again and stay longer. Pristine clean and excellent service from staff on site. Just make sure you have all you need as there is no "pop into the shops" to resupply. Also ensure that you have a vehicle with big wheels(4x4 not necessary) to get there.
Swell Eco Lodge was our first trip to the Wild Coast and what a start! We stayed in the luxury / family unit with our pup. Growing up in predominantly self-catering units I can say with confidence that we have never stayed anywhere as thoughtfully kitted out as here! Pretty much everything you could think of wanting was available in terms of platters, pots and miscellaneous kitchen gadgets. We'd read many of the reviews prior to travelling and were a bit nervous about the road but all fine. It's a rough and ready road, go slow and have your puncture kit handy but completely worth it. We enjoyed the main beach as well as the secret beach - both fantastic! The staff are friendly and available if you need anything. Ideal for those looking for something a little different in a beautiful and remote part of South Africa. …
Beautiful lodge set above the ocean and river mouth, with a direct view on the Mdumbi Point. Top notch kitchen and thoughtful touches throughout (book / mags library, storage space if you plan to stay for than a couple days etc.)
Lovely secluded getaway within a short walk to the ocean. Staff were very welcoming and the place was very clean with fully equipped kitchens (we stayed in the duplex). Owners very accommodating as well. Keep in mind there’s no internet access to the rooms but you can access limited WiFi in the office anytime. Not unusual, seems common in the region. Although a bit of a drive from Central Coffee Bay, a memorable experience off the beaten touristy tracks.
It’s worth to drive one hour on a graveled road to find this very unique place. Feel good and safe, the nature is amazing with all the colored huts around, Swell Eco Lodge is an adventure and is out of ordinary accommodations. The host is lovely including the gardener, the huts are very clean with an amazing view on the sea. Cows are staying and sleeping on the beach. Bring things for the children along the road to go, they are lovely and thankful. The real good place for Ecologists and as well for those who aren’t. An interesting experience.
