The sacred mountain lodge

The word sacred is bound to have you feeling calm long before you set foot on the expansive grounds in Noordhoek where this lodge lies. The first thing that you will notice about this centre is that it is in a quiet place; a country lane, the kind of space that lets you be at one with your thoughts. Here, you get to have extensive views of the white sand by the sea as you take in the mountainous region to the back as well as the lush valley therein. It is indeed a sight to behold.

The tranquillity of the lodge is perfect for anyone looking to unwind. Once you choose the accommodation that best suits you, you are free to explore the various forms of relaxation in the lodge. 

There is a private wellness spa where you can nurse both your body and mind back to good health, a heated swimming pool where you can take a dip after a long day, trails and beach rides to help you take in the beauty and a private bar for those shots you’ve been itching to take. 

On top of all these services, you also get to enjoy some great home-cooked meals. Going back to the basics is a great way to get back in shape, and this is what the lodge offers.
