Full accommodation information
Nestled between Ballito and Shaka’s Rock on the South African coast, Sala Beach House is a palm studded, sun soaked boutique hideaway. With ‘sala’ meaning ‘stay’ in Zulu, you can be assured that this hidden gem offers a homely, intimate experience complete with stunning views of Dolphin’s Coast.
Feel the sinking sand beneath your feet as you head to Thompson’s Bay, just a short walk from your retreat. This expanse of sea and sky is the heart of your holiday, a space for scenic walks, whale watching, diving, surfing, and the backdrop to long evenings on your patio or terrace.
Inside your idyllic room or suite, you’ll find earthy hues and natural materials teamed together to carry the spirit of the outdoors in. Relax in your king-size bed, modern en suite and spacious living space, all soaked in the bright seaside light. Visit The Sala Spa for a soul-soothing treatment, from massages to pedicures, or join a yoga class on the beach. In the evenings, enjoy delicious cuisine at the villa’s private restaurant, with options to eat in the dining room, courtyard or out on the patio with the sunset.
Sala Beach House offers four luxury rooms as well as three spacious suites each offering views across Thompsons Bay and the lush tropical surroundings. Authentic luxury is the theme across the board, with local patterns, earthy tones and floor-to-ceiling windows letting the outdoors in.

Activities & Entertainment
Explore the length of the sweeping sands you see from your windows with a scenic coastal walk. The hike takes you over nine kilometres of varied terrain, with some rocky hills and velvety soft sand trails. En route, keep an eye out for the migrating whales as they move towards Mozambique and Madagascar.
For a shopping spree, head to Ballito Lifestyle Centre or the Junction Mall. Both offer a range of options, from universal brands to niche local gems, along with eateries and other places to kick back and relax.
Keen golfers will relish the portfolio of 18-hole courses located nearby. Simbithi, Umhali and Prince’s Grant are among the locals’ favourites, ranked as some of the best in South Africa, and offering mesmerising views as their backdrops.
There’s plenty to discover on a Dolphin Coast snorkelling adventure, with up to 50 species of fish residing in the waters. Keep an eye out for corals and big shoals, too! You can also try a group or solo surfing lesson and learn how to conquer the waves.
