New luxury beach eco-lodge in De Hoop Nature Reserve

The Morukuru Beach Lodge, the newest member of the Morukuru family, is situated at Koppie Alleen along the pristine coastline of De Hoop Nature Reserve. Just 3 hours drive from Cape Town (or 1 hour private charter flight) the beach lodge is ideally situated halfway between Cape Town and Knynsa/Plettenberg along the Garden Route.
* 2WD with higher ground clearance is recommended for the gravel roads to and inside De Hoop Nature Reserve. 

Famed for its spectacular whale-watching opportunities, De Hoop Nature Reserve also offers beautiful white sand dunes lapped by the Indian Ocean, limestone cliffs, rock pools and coastal fynbos.

Morukuru Beach Lodge has been built with the greatest sensitivity to the environment. Its remote location means that it is completely off grid. Solar power supplies the electricity, and pellet burners heat the water and underfloor heating. Food and wine are sourced locally, with a commitment to organic, seasonal produce.

Morukuru Beach Lodge consists of 4 luxury Ocean View Suites and 1 Honeymoon Suite with views of the Indian Ocean and the surrounding sand dunes. Morukuru Beach Lodge is a sanctuary of refined comfort and luxury.

Rooms at Morukuru Beach Lodge can be booked individually, making them ideal for couples or smaller families. All meals, snacks, soft drinks and 2 guided activities per day (shared with the other guests) are included in the daily rate. The rates per room range from R9000-R13,000 per night.
* It is also possible to book Morukuru Beach Lodge on exclusive use basis during peak season (R88,000 per night, all inclusive).
