What a truly delightful experience! My wife and I could not be more pleased in choosing Oceana for our 25th anniversary. In a day and age where service mediocrity rules, Oceana shatters that norm and delivers an experience that left us both extremely pleased and grateful. The dramatic ocean views from the balcony, the stunning room, the delicious food and the ever helpful staff all amounted to as perfect an experience as one could hope for. We loved it!

Room Tip: Try to get an Ocean Suite - we had a Lodge Suite and were able to transfer over to an Ocean Suite. It is well worth the extra $

The perfect setting to just get away from it all.
10 out of 10 to the staff, they are extremely welcoming and really go out of their way to cater your every need.
The only disappointment was that we were not informed that the spa treatments had to be booked in advance.

Room Tip: The ocean suites are perfectly private and spacious

Hi Natasha

Thanks so much for the kind words and I'm really glad out enjoyed your stay with us. You don't have to book spa treatments in advance but if you want a specific time it is recommended as the spa does get quite full. Hopefully you'll be able to experience the spa next time!

Kind Regards
Chris & the Oceana Team

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Oceana Beach & Wildlife Reserve in September 2017. This is a "best of both worlds experience" as you have the sea and wildlife to enjoy. We had a fantastic time and we were truly spoilt. The ocean suite, view from our room, food, staff members, service and pampering, all excellent.

Our visit to Oceana was a very memorable one. We were so impressed by all the detail put into even the littlest of things. This is what sets them apart from everyone else. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. We had a really great game drive, saw lots of their unique animals which other reserves don't have (black impala, masai giraffe, sable). B was a great host and told us all the info about every animal we saw.
Our room was exquisite....we are still amazing by the sliding doors that open right into the wall to enable a full view of the sea from the bed, let alone the room.
Our bubble bath was so relaxing, and we made use of the espresso machine in the room quite a bit.
Our bed was so comfy, and we even had a menu of the types of pillows we would like to use.
The food was out of this world.....enjoyed every single one, from the pallet cleanser to the mains and dessert. The cocktails were brilliant too. Our dining experience was awesome.....having whales to the right and rhino's to the left....what more could you ask for?
I wish we had had longer in order to use the spa services, as i'm sure they would have been excellent as well.
I recommend them to anyone wanting a relaxing, professional and unique experience.

Room Tip: Sea view room is amazing....worth spending a bit more for
