Spent two nights in November 2015 for my husband's birthday and went back at the end of January 2016 for my birthday. Stunning place, amazing breakfasts, clean and very comfortable rooms and of course Cyrille and Hein are most accommodating and friendly. Will most certainly be going back again!

Our room was great for 2 adults and two children. It has plenty space with a nice deck to sit outside in front of it. The interior is all white and gives you a beach house feel. Everything is nice and clean. Zensa Lodge is a great place to relax, enjoy nature, the beach and good dinners.

Great location, very warm and welcoming hosts, comfortable and clean rooms. A really great getaway just outside Cape Town on the peninsula. While only a hour away from the city, it feels as if you're in a small remote village. Perfect for a quick weekend away from the city life!

Our Room was really beautiful, great that it had no TV and little internet. Some of the friendliest, comfortable owners and staff that you can find anywhere. The area is so beautiful, that you almost need nothing but a slow drive or a fast walk.

Stayed there as I was attending a conference at Shamballah at Cape Point. It is a beautiful lodge, you can hear sound of the sea, the pro stone and beautiful Scarborough beach is just a short walk away. At Zensa, they are so warm and hospitable, it has made the stay excellent. Their internet works well too. Loved it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located at the border of Cape Point National Reserve and a one minute walk from the beach, Zensa Lodge in Scarborough is the ultimate hideaway around Cape Town. It's a place of relaxation, surrounded by beauty and nature, mountains and oceans. Zensa's 7 guest rooms, all in calming white, are models of simplicity, reflecting the unspoiled nature of the Cape Peninsula. With design furniture on pure white floors, crisp white bed linen, they are suffused with a feeling of comfort and style. Each room features an en-suite bathroom with bath, separate shower and walk-in wardrobe. Watch the sunset from your private terrace or patio. Have an early morning stroll on the pristine beach, take a hike up the mountain or in the National Reserve or cycle along the breathtaking coastline of the Cape. Scarborough and its surrounding beaches are world renowned for wave, wind and kite surfing. Hein Van de Geyn and Cyrille Carreon are happy to welcome you to their little haven and aim to make your stay with them an unforgettable one. The large private garden gives Zensa Lodge a feel of spaciousness and tranquility. The pools, jacuzzi and sauna are there to give you all the opportunities to forget about life's hustle and bustle and get in touch with your inner peace. Music is never far away since Hein and Cyrille are both musicians at heart. Great food and a good glass of wine all add to a pure sense of well being. Children are more than welcome at Zensa Lodge. The trampoline, tree hut and of course the close proximity to the beach make Zensa an ideal spot for children of all ages. Zensa Lodge, an oasis in one of the most special areas in the world. We would love to welcome you and share our wonderful place with you. ... more   less
