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 ladies floor 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.

Accommodation at Blue Lagoon Hotel:
River Facing Suites
Our hotel comprises of 36 River Facing Luxury Suites against the river bank, boasting a picturesque view of the Nahoon River. Our rooms have recently undergone a refined face lift focusing on decor, comfort and attention to detail.

Executive Suites
Our hotel comprises of 4 Executive River Facing Luxury Suites against the river bank, boasting a picturesque view of the Nahoon River. Our rooms have recently undergone a refined face lift focusing on decor, comfort and attention to detail.

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.

The Blue Lagoon offers the Highlander Restaurant, which is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Super, no complaint.
Rosemarie & Helmut Schefter Aug 2010
Rooms are not very clean and the hotel is a bit cold (architecture and welcome).
Daniel Laborde Jul 2010
We had to request additional towels, milk, tea, coffee as we were 4 people and not 3 as was supplied in the room. The TV cabinet door was also broken. The service in the dining room for dinner was very slow.
Graham Hitch Jan 2010
We only stayed at the hotel for one night whilst we were in transit from Durban to Cape Town. The reason we stayed there is because we have stayed there in the past and were very happy previously.

The hotel is excellent as is the service and the food. We really enjoyed the fact it was right on the beach and had a lovely early morning walk on the beach. We would like to have stayed longer. I obtained excellent rates by booking on the internet and felt I had value for money.

Thank - you for the experience and service provided.
Mrt & Mrs John Wilson Jan 2010

Initial thoughts were it seemed a bit pricey in comparison with other places we stayed, but actually when we got to the room it was great - more like a flat. We had two bedrooms, twin and double, a lounge, dining table and kitchen with hob, microwave, fridge etc. Nice view of the beach and inlet from balcony. All recently refurbished so looked very smart. Also enjoyed seeing all the rock rabbits!
