SALA Forever, a little peace in every sense

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 08 Jun 2023
We had the most wonderful few days at this incredible hotel. We renamed it SALA FOREVER because if I ever return to Ballito, this is the only place I'll be! The hotel management and staff were extremely helpful and greeted us with a warm welcome every time we left and came back. The rooms are beautiful, spacious, modern and nothing has been forgotten. Great views of the ocean and slept to the sound of the waves. The food whether in the dinning, lounge area or in our room was great and the service outstanding. The tables on the deck outside are set 'simply in heaven'. If I could I would rate it 6 star! The on-site Spa was an added bonus that we indulged in. If you are looking for a special place to have a memorable stay I recommend it most highly. Have travelled all over the world and put it right up there with the best. South Africa has so much to offer and this spot has it all. Someone has gone to great lengths to create beauty, decor, and harmony with nature and matched it with excellence in service. Thank you SALA we will be back.

    Had the most wonderful mid-week getaway at Sala Beach House. We decided to re-name it SALA FOREVER because should we visit Ballito again that's where we'll be! Kind, friendly staff and management who went more than the extra mile to ensure our every wish was granted and even more. Set in a beautiful modern tropical wonderland, the rooms are comfortable, indulgent and everything is provided. Great decor, calm ambiance and delicious food whether in the dining area or room service. The in-house Spa was a bonus to indulge in. Peace and quiet in abundance with the sound of ocean waves. We recommend it highly for anyone wanting a Boutique Hotel experience with magnificent ocean views..

    Room tip: There are stairs down to the hotel but staff always around to assist. Take your costume the beach is on your doorstep.

    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!

    Room tip: Check out the artwork & details of the decor in the common areas. Keep the door to the balcony closed when away-the monkeys can be naughty.

    Thank you for a lovely evening with excellent service and delicious food. The beautiful furnishings and lovely ambiance just made this such a special place to have dinner.

    I would imagine lunch would be fantastic, sitting outside with such a glorious view, however the evening was special as well with the fire pit outside and comfortable seating.

    I would love to come again when I next visit South Africa!

    Exquisite location, decor, design and ambience. The staff service level is exceptional and the spa experience blissful.

    We have stayed here and also just visited for their Escape to Sala lunch and spa package and we can honestly say that Sala Beach is 10/10!🌴
