The Lodge at Atlantic Beach is a twenty-five-minute drive from the CBD, situated between the dunes and the N7, The Lodge offers the best of both worlds. Tranquil surroundings and the open space of the fairways give way to views of Table Mountain. The faint sound of the ocean, the dawn chorus of the birds and a hint of the salty tang of the sea mingles with the sweet scent of fynbos and the tempting aroma of coffee brewing.
A five-minute drive in any direction takes you to the beach or the convenience of shopping centers, restaurants, and retail outlets without the hassle of loud traffic and an annoying hunt for parking.
The Lodge At Atlantic Beach is located on the West Coast Way Culture and Cape Way Routes.

There is plenty to do without leaving the estate.
Enjoy a round of golf on the wonderful links type golf course, work out in the fitness center, swim laps in the pool or have a game of tennis. Take a walk or a run around the estate on the 5,5km marked trail.
Relax and indulge yourself at the Elemental Health and Beauty Spa.
On the first Friday of the month the golf clubhouse rocks with live music concerts. Tickets cost R150 (subject to change) per head and include a bottomless burger.
The estate is home to several wild animals namely mongoose, caracul, steenbok, springbok, rabbits, tortoises, and an abundance of birdlife. The estate takes the stance that the animals were here first and therefore are never interfered with. The golf club employs an environmentalist and the estate also works closely with Cape Nature Conservation.
Regular headcounts are done of the various species to monitor numbers, and if there are too many to be sustained by the estate they are relocated.
It is not unusual to see steenbok wandering about on the fairways or snacking on the fynbos outside the dining room. A walk around the estate trail will certainly result in the sightings of some type of wildlife.

Great food and excellent wine
The rolling hills and wine estates of Durbanville are a short drive from the Lodge. A favourite of mine is the Nitida Wine Farm. Their Cassia restaurant spills from a charming indoor venue onto the deck overlooking the lake, with the hills forming a beautiful backdrop.
Foodies will adore Tables Restaurant at the estate. Chef Shani Kleynhans like to keep it simple, her mantra is ‘let’s eat, not fuss’. The cuisine is described as a classic with a modern twist and Shani believes in using locally sourced seasonal ingredients.
This family-owned and operated wine cellar prides itself on handmade wines and working with nature to produce boutique wines with the Wine of Origin status and no shortage of awards. Nitida is all about perfecting the small details throughout the journey from the vine to a Nitida wine. It is also about working with nature and thereby ensuring that the wine embodies their attitude and brand.
Darling is a larger town with a quirky museum and a delightful Mystery Trail that starts at the museum, and by solving clues, leads you to the many highlights and tastes of the town.
A short and scenic drive from Darling around the hill takes you to the unique !Khwa ttu, a celebration and education of the SAN culture with a great restaurant, walking and mountain bike trails, guided San walks, wildlife and a tractor trip to the best views in the area from the Boma on top of the hill.
In September 2019 !Khwa ttu opened their new Heritage Museum where San guides will tell their unfiltered stories of their people. Audio, film, talks, and demonstrations make a visit a fully immersive experience.
The Lodge at Atlantic Beach has twenty luxurious rooms that have just had a décor upgrade.
Their new-look has moved away from the traditional dark mahogany American look to a lighter and much fresher color scheme in soft teals, light greens, and greys in the rooms and very striking black and white combination in most of the public areas.
All rooms are equipped with satellite TV, fast complimentary internet, aircon, tea and coffee making facilities, a minibar and an en suite bathroom.
One has to love their little library nook on the first floor. Calming colors soothe, a filled bookshelf tempts and the sun streams in through huge windows with distracting views. This is a great choice for a relaxing afternoon. To sink into a chair with a good book and a pot of tea and a sunbeam.
