About Morukuru Beach Lodge

Considered one of South Africa’s leading beach hotels, Morukuru Beach Lodge embodies exceptional service, setting, and overall experience. This luxurious lodge offers guests a secluded escape in the Cape Floral Kingdom, located in the Western Cape's De Hoop Nature Reserve. Surrounded by flourishing flora, fauna, and fynbos, it’s a nature-lovers paradise. With just two Family Suites, two Ocean View Suites, and a Honeymoon Suite, Morukuru Beach Lodge is an intimate escape.

Relax in the privacy and comfort of your suite or make the most of the lodge’s shared living areas, or book Morukuru Beach Lodge on an exclusive-use basis and enjoy all it has to offer without interruption. Some exciting features of the property include a firepit, an outdoor hot tub, a swimming pool, and a rooftop terrace ideal for watching the sun set over the ocean and a large expanse of white sand beach.

Morukuru Beach Lodge Setting

Managed by Cape Nature, De Hoop Nature Reserve stands as one of the most expansive natural domains under their care. This enchanting sanctuary holds immense appeal for hiking enthusiasts, cyclists, and those with a passion for birdwatching and of course, observing majestic whales. Encompassing a sprawling expanse of 34,000 hectares, De Hoop is conveniently located a mere three-hour drive away from Cape Town, nestled within the captivating region of the Overberg.

Guests are invited to join two shared guided activities daily or enjoy any of the self-guided activities at their leisure. Take part in marine and nature walks, snorkelling, sandboarding, or a nature drive. A short walk from the lodge is a seemingly endless stretch of pristine beach, perfect for lounging in the sun, taking a long walk, or whale watching from July to December. Morukuru Beach Lodge is an idyllic haven for nature lovers and those looking to embrace a near-off-grid, yet fully catered, experience.
