Thonga beach Lodge is best described as remote luxury, a place to escape everyday life, and with no mobile phone signal, this is the perfect place to escape to.


Thonga Beach Lodge Location

Thonga Beach Lodge is located on the Elephant Coast, which is in the northern stretches of the province of KwaZulu-Natal, in South Africa. Durban is the closest South African city, roughly 5 hours away. Maputo is roughly a 4 hour drive away.



The spacious, thatched suites are hidden in the coastal dune forest and raised on wooden stilts to ensure no harm comes to the sensitive dune soils. Inspired by Thonga architecture, the rooms have been carefully positioned to guarantee guest privacy. Some rooms offer sea views, whilst others are set within the dune forest. All 24 suites at Thonga Beach Lodge have private balconies and air conditioning. Luxuriously decorated, the rooms radiate a romantic ambiance. Bleached wood, glass and natural materials have been used to create an open, airy feel. The en-suite rooms have a bathroom with bath, shower and twin vanity.



Thonga Beach Lodge offers quality service as well as a range of activities to keep the whole family busy.


Food & beverage

Most meals are served al fresco, or, guests can head for the beach and dine by candlelight on the shores of the Indian Ocean.
