Pure Sea: An Oceanfront Boutique Lodge in Romansbaai

Pure Sea Boutique Lodge

Beachfront bliss on the edge of Walker Bay.

Boasting the enchanting natural beauty of 220 hectares of pristine coastal land, Romansbaai Beach and Fynbos Estate optimises its coveted north-facing location along South Africa’s magnificent southern shores. Tucked in this inimitable setting, Pure Sea Beachfront Boutique Lodge offers casual comfort and laidback simplicity – with four expansive suites opening onto the most glorious ocean views, and continuously connecting guests with the sights and sounds of their surroundings.

Healing connections

Pure Sea Boutique Lodge Yoga

Finding inspiration in nature, Pure Sea’s stylish ecofriendly suites have been specially designed to mirror the textures and tones outside. The elegantly appointed rooms – Khoi, San, Olokun, and Namaka – double as spaces of healing. With pathways winding their way from the suites and communal areas, the sea and hiking trails are always a stone’s throw away.

Meaningful experiences

Pure Sea Boutique Lodge Hot Tub

Pure Sea’s philosophy of slowing down to the rhythms of nature includes embracing the healing energy of the elements, and discovering the restorative beauty of Romansbaai at your own pace. From being spellbound as resident zebra, springbok, and bontebok shyly emerge from the bush, to easing into highly intuitive treatments. Here, wellness also encompasses the freedom to enjoy kilometres of unfiltered ocean views all by yourself. No stone is left unturned to transform stays into deeply personalised experiences – think scrumptious private beach picnics and romantic terrace tapas with moreish platters a deux. A wood-fired hot tub in a magical fynbos setting makes for languid afternoons of unwinding, and being awed as the fading sun sets ocean, veld and sky alight.
