This north coast gem is utterly unique and so relaxing. You arrive to this remote location and have a beautiful view of the river with the frequent sound of fish eagles calling.
The accommodation from the outside looks like literal shacks but once you go into your room it's beautiful with unique pieces and custom made furniture. It is very "arty" and appreciated if you like that sort of thing. If you are looking for a Protea Hotel type of stay then this might not be for you.
The kitchen is communal and is fantastic with everything you need. The Hatchery has a unique "Butler" menu. Almost like a pay as you go system. So if you want your room cleaned you pay R20 - R30 or so. If you want the butler to cook for you, you pay about R50 and you can even have a butler that will carry your cooler box down to the beach for you. It's a great system as I enjoyed not having service to the rooms and having the awkward feeling of having to leave the room so people can clean it.
The Hatchery is very, very relaxing and the random pools and things of interest make for an amazing stay. We will be back very soon! More
