About Nakai


Nakai Beach is a luxurious boutique homestay, which has been lovingly restored and refurbished with an eclectic tropical aesthetic – offering a cascading infinity pool sailing into the ocean’s horizon.

"At the Ocean"

This luxurious retreat garnered its name from the Hawaiian word meaning “at the ocean” and one could not hope to find a more apt name… With views as far as the eye can see and an expansive wooden deck which floats above the natural forest of the Mpenjati Nature Reserve, Nakai offers you an oasis of serenity - a sanctuary for the body, heart and mind. This instantly de-stressing hideaway induces a smile of wonder to anyone who steps through the remarkable lime Indian Jali doors.


Bright engaging colour and artful design are deftly woven into the lush fabric of a place which will transport you to a tropical paradise.

Unbeatable Location

The unbeatable location of panoramic ocean vistas, verdant tropical gardens, and the attentive personalised service makes Nakai an unsurpassed retreat. The other facilities include a dedicated Yoga Studio, conference centre, a shop of exotic delights and the renowned Café Gauguin and Juice Bar to delight your senses.
