Web Ref #: 450

Location: Chintsa Bay

Set along the magical Wild Coast, offering rustic luxury accommodation for those in search of fun, sun and relaxation.


Nestled in the middle of the beautiful Chintsa Bay on the Wild Coast, surrounded by rolling hills, lush tropical beach forests and overlooking the warm Indian Ocean. A romantic getaway to explore the many beautiful treasures the Wild Coast has to offer.


Spend your days walking on the endless golden beaches and be absorbed by the untouched natural beauty of the landscape while discovering new exotic bird and fish life indigenous to the area.


Situated approximately 42km's from East London, the location is malaria free, and is a surfside city famous for its Nahoon Reef. Far enough from the maddening crowd, but close enough to the major city.


It is also an ideal venue for Weddings and Honeymoons.




As you enter the stylishly designed bedroom with amazing view of the Indian Ocean, you will be hypnotised by the sound of the waves and the smell of the freshest air. The king or queen sized beds please the weary traveller and leaves you feeling rejuvenated after the first nights peaceful sleep.


Each luxury suite has en-suite bathroom, giving you privacy while still being a part of the festivities as you can witness all from your personal balcony. The rooms are spacious and have their own separate entrances. You may be forgiven for thinking you have arrived at home.


The Beach Lodge is suitable designed around the contours of the coastal dunes that it resides on. The elevation of the slope ensures that every room has a sea view. With the lodge being so close to the ocean, one does not need to drive anywhere. All attractions are within a few steps of one another, the dining room, the lounge and the beach.


After a day at the beach, rinse off under the outside shower to take a dip in the pool to cool off. Get ready to take your shoes off and relax in the most beautiful setting.


The lodge offers 20 luxury suites which consists of double and twin bedrooms, all en-suite and each with their own private balcony, overlooking the sea.


The suites are fully equipped with bar fridge, DSTV, coffee and tea making facilities, with air-conditioning or fans and fully equipped kitchenette.


Furthermore, there are a number of self-catering thatched cottages secluded in and amongst the forest dunes, each with their own private deck, where you can unwind with family and friends while the sun goes down and a fire burns in the background.


All rooms are equipped with a safe for your personal belongings.


Bar and Lounge:


Get acquainted with your fellow guests by interacting in the lounge, having a drink in the bar or merely floating around the lawn and pool area under the tropical Khamanga palms. The elevated lounge and deck gives a fantastic panoramic view of the bay.


The Wild Coast:


The Wild Coast has everything a traveller needs, and probably right on ones doorstep. There's great fishing, wildlife, and long beaches. Activities include swimming, horse riding, surfing and canoeing, or, get off the beaten track by hiking or 4 x 4 excursions. You'll find abundant cultural heritage, rare exotic birdlife and if you're lucky, the odd leopard!


Explore some great rivers, outstanding beaches, waterfalls and mountains. Constants include lush forests, tropical climates and majestic sunrises and sunsets. Partake in a sea cruise - you'll get sight of many whales and an abundance of dolphins common in the area.


There isn't any real structure here, but there is a real harmony.


What makes the Wild Coast really special is the great untouched landscape, the friendly local people and the vibrant holidays. It's a holiday option that's hard to beat. It is filled with dreamy thoughts and outdoor adventure, plus lots of laidback romance. Spoil yourself; come test the Wild Coast waters - but be warned, they can become quite addictive.




Facilities are offered to benefit couples in love with the capacity to accommodate wedding parties of up to 130 guests.


Ceremonies can be held indoors, on the beach or a garden wedding followed by a picturesque reception in the dining room overlooking the bay. Chintsa East also offers a beautiful chapel for the more traditional ceremonies.


Treat yourself and the special person in your life to a romantic getaway. Let the experienced and capable wedding co-ordinators assist you in making your day as memorable as it should be.
