Close enough to dip your toes into the Hermanus Lagoon, laze about under a tree on the lawn and inhale the fresh air rolling in over the surrounding mountains, the Mosaic Lagoon Lodge is a lagoon-side haven between the towns of Hermanus and Stanford.
Guests can look for whales at one of the best whale watching areas in the world, or shark cage dive a few kilometres off the coast. A secluded beach in Walker Bay, accessible only by 4X4, promises privacy while quad biking tours between the dunes can form part of your day. Mountain bikes and kayaks are available for hire.
The ultimate five-star getaway awaits at one of Mosaic’s safari-style suites. With each stone- and glass-walled lodge leading onto a private deck that greets distant mountains, guests can observe the close of the day before retreating to their king-size bed, cosy fireplace and en-suite bathroom (complete with a large tub for relaxing bubble baths).
