Overlooking the site where the Nahoon River meets the warm Indian Ocean, the Blue Lagoon Hotel
lies nestled in indigenous, sub-tropical foliage. Easily accessible and close to central East London and inland areas, the hotel offers tranquility and seclusion from the bustle of city life.
Our hotel offers a delightful blend of stylish garden facing hotel rooms or modern luxury two bedroom lagoon facing suites (self catering available), with easy access to the river and beaches. Self catering suites are also available. An additional 27 bedrooms were completed in mid November 2009 where a ï¿½ladies floorï¿½ has been introduced, for your comfort.
The Blue Lagoon Hotel offers the Highlander Restaurant, which is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Highlander Restaurant has an enviable reputation of excellent wines, food that roars with flavor and service that whispers. Our Highlander Pub and Tanqueray Cocktail Bar, overlooking the picturesque Nahoon river, against the river bank, makes this the perfect setting for cocktails while being washed by the late afternoon sun.
The hotel offers four well equipped conference venues which are ideal for seminars, training programmes and executive meetings. Due to our pristine location, the Blue Lagoon Hotel is the perfect venue for team building activities on the beach.
Leisure facilities include a sparkling pool (separate kiddies pool), braai area. Squash and tennis courts are available at the nearby country club. The popular East London Golf Course, which is rated one of the top ten courses in South Africa, is located nearby.

Garden Facing / Standard Rooms
Our hotels comprises of 67 Standard hotel rooms. Although the view differs – majority of the standard rooms are garden facing. All our rooms have recently undergone a refined face lift focusing on decor, comfort and attention to detail. Included in the 67 standard rooms is a recently built extension of 27 rooms. One of the features is a high security "ladies floor” for ladies traveling alone.
We felt that for too long security with regard to specific needs have been largely ignored in the hospitality industry and in light of this we launched the ladies only controlled floor in the new block of rooms. Going green is another important aspect that we considered for our new extension, with a large portion of the lights being energy saving and using solar energy for hot water, as well as a complex system of using rain water for flushing. This definitely is a long term strategy that we have in place.
