Crawfords Beach Lodge in Chintsa

High dunes, unspoiled beaches, all the advantages of the Wild Coast in an exclusive setting, only 40 kilometers from East London. Crawford’s Beach Lodge is set in the lush dune forests, on the beautiful Chintsa Bay Beach, Wild Coast.

We offer elegant guest house accommodation and a well equipped conference centre. Our trade mark is personal service and fine country fare, in an atmosphere of intimate peace and tranquility. Each cottage has an individual balcony from which to greet the day, and is surrounded by an abundance of wild life and nature.

Breakfast is served overlooking the shimmering Indian Ocean, and where evening barbecues are the norm for those wanting to take in the evening hue. Sun-drenched days are spent swimming in a turquoise sea, or strolling the golden beaches. The conference package includes all meals, accommodation and morning and afternoon teas. The Sea at your door, the Beach at your feet.

Very well worth a visit. Great setting with excellent restaurant. Enjoy a stunning view of an awesome beach that is ideal for swimming surfing and fishing. Also has a river a short walk away where a tranquil canoe paddle can be enjoyed. The chalets between the trees are spacious with good quality bedding and notably well maintained. A must to stay at when visiting the area.

Crawfords is the sort of place you don't want to review because you want to keep it all to yourself, but I must as it is wonderful. The views and the location are second to none, we treated ourselves to the honey-moon room which surpassed expectations. The staff are great and super helpful, helping us to arrange a game drive and spa visit. I will say that the dinner each night was a little samey, but beyond that Crawfords is fantastic and we will be back.

"Outstanding Service over the years...."

The management and staff of Crawfords Beach Lodge went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. From the reception desk to the waiters in the dining hall, all were extremely professional. This attests to thorough training and maintenance of standards.

Our room had a beautiful view of the beach, was within easy walking distance from the dining facilities and it was spotlessly clean. When we returned from dinner that evening, a welcoming chocolate had been placed on our turned-back covers. This attention to detail did not go unnoticed either. :)

The chef and kitchen team also need to be highly commended on the excellentbuffet they provide: thereare a variety of products for each stage of a menu, incredible flavours and textures whether you are looking at starters, main course, desserts or cheeses and crackers. The beverages in the adjoining lounge,where they also keep a welcoming fireburning,are also accompanied by three delicious types of cookies. All in all, a culinary delight!

I need to add that I, at a personal level,have enjoyed meals (some booked and others impromptu), overnight stays and two day workshops here for work purposesover the last eight years and cannot ever recall having had a disappointing meal or experience.This family has therefore convinced me that they believe in service excellence.
