The Merry Crab Beach Lodge

From R770 per Unit

 

Overview

The Merry Crab is a secure, informal holiday hideaway carved out of the lush, tropical Admiralty Reserve and only a pathway away from a beach so pretty, film-makers have used it for movie sets! The Merry Crab is among the most ideal locations from which to experience one of nature's greatest mysteries.

Fringing the Indian Ocean the resort, set in 4050 square meters of sub-tropical coastal forest, is approximately 75 paces from one of the prettiest and most unspoilt beaches along our coastline - a 15 minute drive from Margate Airport (direct 80 minute flight from Johannesburg International), a 2 hour drive from the new King Shaka International Airport and only a 10 minute drive from 3 championship golf courses.
Secure and secluded, it is unique in concept and was designed with attention to detail and utmost privacy in mind. The surrounding area is habitat to a myriad of bird-life as well as numerous species of antelope, monkey, Genet cat, monitor lizards etc.
Strategically positioned to take best advantage of the Indian Ocean, the (bachelor pad) STUDIOS, the (1 bedroom suite) CASITAS and the (2 bedroom, 2 bathroom) CABANAS are especially designed for coolness, their white walls and 'stone-flagged' floor interiors, cool in contrast to the mud-tinged (cornflower blue door and window) exteriors.

Guest Comments

If you are looking for a friendly, peaceful holiday then don't hesitate to consider The Merry Crab. The staff were helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. You are a very short walk from a beautiful beach that even our two year old twins could walk. A hidden gem on the South Coast.
