Travellers' Choice
This is 3 star family resort offering full board on the Wild Coast of the Eastern Cape of South Africa. The resort is the place if you want to spend time with your family, ride a horse on the beach, canoe up the river, swim i the sea, fish, hike and just relax! Good food is synonymous with us and Saturday evening is a seafood supper of note!

Entered my 30s at my favorite place Kob Inn Beach Resort. It feels like home ❤️ but the horse rides are truly an once in a lifetime experience. Firstly, a HUGE thanks to Jessica Goslett for your endless patience, friendly smile (despite the 4am breakfast ride 😉) many many laughs and ... for crossing the river first - you are definitely the braver one😂 From casual beach strolls, swimming in the lagoon, STUNNING Shixini ride and then the UNFORGETTABLE “Gorge” ride - the beauty of which can only matched by misleading effort it requires🐎🦄 My favorite place and the best way to celebrate (anything)🥳 A MUST if horse riding is your thing (& even if it’s not😛). Thanks again, Violet van Zyl Daan van Zyl Kob Inn Beach Resort 🥰

If you are looking for a family holiday or a holiday to relax Kobb Inn is the place. The food is exceptional, portions correct and service impeccable. This is really a holiday. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing, walking, sea views, pool, river, fishing, tennis and so many other activities to keep everyone busy or just to relax and enjoy. The rooms are immaculate and the position hard to beat.

Our family stayed at Kob Inn for 8 days over the new year. Even though it was a last minute booking the staff went out of their way to accommodate us in a family room. The service and food was excellent as was the ambience of the entire establishment. The horse rides on the beach were great as well as the trips up the lagoon. Fishing was excellent. We made lots of new friends and will certainly return! If you have not stayed here before do yourself a favour and book - you will not regret it. Thanks to Daan, Violet, Paulina, Dean and Marietha as well as the rest of the staff!!!!

Literally our best holiday every year and this was no exception. Kids had a ball and tears when we left. Despite the current regulations there was so much to do despite the beach. We had a beautiful horse ride and the fishing was great. Already missing it.
