So my husband and I just got back from the most romantic anniversary weekend away at Zensa Lodge in Scarborough. This beautiful gem of a place really offered so much more than what we had intended. We arrived on Friday evening and was warmly welcomed by the hosts of the lodge who showed us around this tranquil lodge surrounded by absolute nature.
Let me start of by saying if you really want to relax, unwind and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life this place is definitely a must see. There is no TV, and most of the time signal is a rare find. But I must say that having this down time really does do the soul well. Boasting with 7 beautiful guest rooms all in calming white, with the decor and interior displaying absolute simplicity it really does show the beauty of the unspoiled nature that is Cape Peninsula.
This amazing accommodation offered, breakfast included on all mornings of your stay as well as on the Saturday evening a romantic 3 course meal and a free bottle of the most amazing red wine for the evening. I must say what made this place so special was the warmth of the owners of the lodge Hein and Cyrille. As we were enjoying our main course meal Hein grabbed his stunning vintage bass guitar and started playing some tunes and soon after his wife Cyrille joined with vocals which was such a beautiful special touch to an awesome evening of dining. I must say if you are thinking of taking your significant other to a special place this is definitely a place you should consider.
Don't worry Zensa Lodge is not just for the hopeful romantics there is so much to do even if you just want a relaxing breakaway with friends an family. This space has a beautiful private garden, with a pool, sauna, and even a jacuzzi for those colder evenings.
This has by far been one of the best cottages I have stayed at for a while, the food, company and absolute pleasant entertainment has made it such a special experience and I will definitely return back when I need a nature fueled recharge!
