There is a very, very special corner of Monkey Bay. The air feels fresher somehow and also more relaxed here. Sweeter even. The garden grows lush and thick. And the water laps gently at the yellow sand shore.
Monkey Bay Beach Lodge is a little slice of heaven. Its a 9-room boutique hotel, in the former president’s holiday home, right next to the navy base at Monkey Bay. Warren Loots, the owner, is very hands-on and the whole place feels like you’re spending time within a big family.
I would have spent all of my time here if I could.
