Crystal Lagoon Lodge
Crystal Lagoon Lodge 5-star romance
Crystal Lagoon Lodge radiates 5-star romance in the most idyllic beachfront setting atop a fynbos-sheltered dune. A few meters from the ocean’s edge, enchanting sea views can be enjoyed almost throughout the lodge, wrapped in striking and unusual architectural lines
Crystal Lagoon’s Location
Crystal Lagoon Lodge’s is situated next to one of the world’s greatest natural wonders, Langebaan’s saltwater lagoon, only one hour’s drive north of Cape Town.
Crystal Lagoon’s heartbeat, the Lagoon
The Langebaan Peninsula area has 7 bird islands, and with the nutrient rich Benguela current that rushes in twice per day with filter feeders as humble as the sand prawn, it is attracting flamingos and other filter feeders in the West Coast National Park creating a whole habitat enabling the filtering resulting in the crystal-clear waters of Langebaan lagoon.
The lodge echoes some elements of the West Coast kelp forest, with pretty shells washing up ashore with the ebb and flow used as pure poetry in the lodge. Better than any man-made souvenir, these ocean treasures are only found next to a sea lagoon, where there is no river flowing into the sea.
Crystal Lagoon Lodge the main building:
9 ensuite rooms whereof 7 beach front suites. Breakfasts, cocktails, and special kitchen requests.
Beachfront Honeymoon suites: they are Crystal Lagoon Lodge’s 2 flagship suites. They are larger than the other suites, have an additional shell table for candle lit dinners or sundowners, are on the 2nd and 3rd floors, enabling stunning sea views through large floor to ceiling windows, and with an outside door leading to a private sea facing balcony. Even amidst showering one can see the blue ocean over the shoulder-height bathroom wall. Beds are facing the windows, thus allowing you to see breath-taking sunsets across the water even over your toes! Excellent suites for enjoying sundowner cocktails.
Beachfront Deluxe suites: these 4 are a slight smaller version of the honeymoon suites and are also on the 2nd and 3rd floors, enabling stunning sea views through large floor to ceiling windows, and with an outside door leading to a private sea facing balcony. Even amidst showering one can see the blue ocean over the shoulder-height bathroom wall. Beds are facing the windows, thus allowing you to see breath-taking sunsets across the water even over your toes! Excellent suites for enjoying sundowner cocktails.
The Beachfront Queens room is on the 1st floor on the dining area level. It is a beachfront room with ensuite sea facing shower, so you can see the ocean through a higher window while showering. The Queens room has an outside door leading to the deck where breakfast is served, and the stairs going down to the beach. This room is ideal for those that don’t want to do the stairs or want to be pampered by the kitchen or receive breakfast in bed!
Non-Sea view rooms: these two rooms with en-suite shower are situated in the corridors across the honeymoon suites on the 2nd and 3rd floors, corridor doors can be closed to define apartments that sleeps 4. As this rooms are not so expensive it is ideal for a quick stayover. Sea views are available on deck on the 1st floor, where cocktails can be enjoyed.

Crystal Lagoon’s Artistic Innovation
The core of Crystal Lagoon’s DNA is inspiring creativity and harvesting artistic expression and vision in the local community. Einstein’s definition of creativity, ‘’intelligence at play”, encourages daily fun with a twinkle in the eye. There is always some interesting project going, whether it is artisan bread-making, harvesting Carob pods and making cacao powder, crafting shell & abalone rooftops for the pergolas, mosaic of wall panels, making ottomans or sun-chairs, a vertical herb garden, or succulent and protea gardens on the dune.
