The Boathouse


Kick back in Ballito (without breaking the bank)

The holiday town of Ballito may be one of the most popular vacation spots among South Africans – but staying needn’t break the bank. The Boathouse is an affordable and homely guesthouse right on the beachfront that treats guests to great views of the inviting Indian Ocean.

Just under an hour’s drive from Durban, bustling Ballito is a wonderful beach-holiday destination. The warm water and evergreen weather ensure there’s no shortage of fun to be had: swimming, fishing, surfing, or partying are only a few of the activities available here. Plus, the abundance of cute dolphins along the shore has given this region its evocative name: the Dolphin Coast.

The Boathouse’s 19 Rooms and the exclusive Penthouse Suite are all individually decorated and come with en-suite bathrooms, satellite TV, air conditioning, and a telephone. Upon venturing out of your room, you’ll find a range of ways to pass the time – without leaving the guesthouse: dine on southern Indian cuisine at the in-house restaurant, Thava, spoil yourself with a treatment at the Secrets Day Spa, or kick back at the guesthouse’s swimming pool or cigar bar.
