Sala Beach House offers barefoot elegance in a tropical haven. This is the newest gem on Kwa-Zulu Natal’s North Coast. Overlooking the magnificent Thompson’s Bay, this boutique hotel is nestled between coastal towns of Salt Rock and Balito.
The main house of Sala Beach House is perched on the seafront, boasting four guest Bedrooms and three Suites. Each of these offers private balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the idyllic Indian Ocean. The rooms here provide a restful space from which to harness the healing power of nature. Beach-inspired tones and natural materials complement thoughtful touches such as extra-length king-size beds, deep-soaking bathtubs, stocked beach bags and yoga mats.
There is also a self-contained three-bedroom Villa at Sala Beach House for families or groups wanting extra space and privacy. The main living area features a spacious dining/lounge area and a full kitchen, while outside the large terrace and sparkling private pool offer space to enjoy the views and sounds of the ocean.
Discreet private beach access leads to one of the area's most picturesque bays, where there is a gorgeous, sandy swimming beach and protected tidal pool. Spend the day exploring the rocky coastline, snorkel with colourful marine life and stroll upon the warm sand. Or simply relax by one of the hotel’s two swimming pools and retreat to the sun deck with a good book.
Activities in the area include snorkelling, coastal walks, deep-sea fishing, golf, and surfing, making Sala Beach House the perfect place to create a memorable holiday and celebrate special occasions. Just 20 minutes from King Shaka International Airport, Sala Beach House is the perfect break between safari escapes in the Zululand reserves 3 hours away.
The province of KwaZulu-Natal continues to be the destination of choice for those that love the extensive, beautiful coastline of South Africa. The warm Indian Ocean waters are inviting and the waves are excellent for surfers who want to while away their days testing their skills in the warm South African summer.
Thompson Bay is a sheltered little inlet that is nestled between Chaka’s Rock and Ballito. Because it is somewhat protected from the elements, it is ideal for fishermen, as well as friends and families that want to spend the day swimming in the warm waters, or playing on the sand. There are life guards on duty to protect the bathers, as well as shark nets to prevent any unwelcomed encounters with these beautiful hunters.
Thompson Bay is close to a number of other popular beaches along the KwaZulu-Natal coastline; including Zimbali, Clarke Bay, Willard and Salt Rock beaches.
Thompson Bay is the perfect destination for those that want to enjoy the hot, humid conditions of KwaZulu-Natal within the tranquillity of a secluded spot. The tourist attractions of the bigger towns are a mere drive away, making them accessible and convenient.
