KwaZulu Natal boasts a sub-tropical climate and tends to enjoy sunshine year-round with hot and humid summers, from November to March and much milder winters (May to September) than the rest of the country. The coastal line is typically blessed with around 300 days of sunshine while the elevation of the Drakensberg makes the temperatures more moderate. During the rainy season, the Drakensberg is likely to have daily thunderstorms and rain.

Listen to the waves boom and dolphins leap as the Indian Ocean breeze rustles the trees at Lalaria Ocean Villa. Whether you’re seeking to escape from the humdrum or explore KwaZulu-Natal’s Dolphin Coast, you’ll find it at this 5* luxury boutique.

Lalaria Ocean Villa is a small boutique lodge on KwaZulu-Natal’s Dolphin Coast. With only six rooms, Lalaria is a wonderfully peaceful spot to relax with the beach just beneath the property and panoramic Indian Ocean views. If you are more active then there is a golf course nearby and the surf on the beach below is excellent. Accommodation consists of five luxurious en-suite guestrooms, each leading directly to the pool or garden and with exquisite views.

The focus at Lalariais on outdoor living and there are a number of different spots where guests can sit back and soak up the warm air. As well as a number of different patio areas, the hotel also boasts a spacious deck overlooking the beach, where eating and drinking can be enjoyed alongside dolphin spotting, which is an almost daily occurrence. The idyllic tropical gardens have a wide array of birdlife as well as the occasional sighting of a vervet monkey.

Guests at Lalaria can partake in a number of exciting day trips to further explore the area’s rich wildlife, with opportunities to head out on a dolphin watching trip, visit game reserves, swim at uShaka Sea World and enjoy a day’s fishing.
