Luxury

Miarestate Hotel & Spa – Haga Haga 
Traveller24 recommendation: This relatively new, five star hotel is a welcome addition to the small luxury offering along the Wild Coast. Not only are the rooms and customer service amazing, they also offer a fine dining experience. The entire estate is very tastefully and glamorously decorated and you can even do game viewing from your veranda. 
Price point: Between R2 900 and R6 100 per night, for two people sharing (including breakfast) 
Contact details: Call them on 043 841 1152 or email reservations@miarestate.co.za




Morgan Bay Hotel – Morgan Bay 
Traveller24 recommendation: Even though this hotel is only rated three stars - it's one of the best Wild Coast experiences you can ask for. The hotel sits right on the beach, overlooking the Indian Ocean blue. We love it best because of it's ability to create the perfect escape for an entire family - mom, dad, grandma, grandpa and children of all ages. 
Price point: Between R750 and R1 400 per room, per night

Budget/Self-catering

Stone House – outside East London 
Traveller24 recommendation: This is a super rustic, very modern holiday home that’s perfect for a family getaway, away from the December hype. As it is a mere 30km from East London – with amazing beaches, shops and a holiday buzz – you won’t feel completely secluded from civilization. But just far enough to really relax. 
NOTE: This is an Airbnb listing, which means it will be booked soon. There are, however, many more affordable options on the Wild Coast on Airbnb available during the festive season. 
Price point: R2 720 per night (sleeps 6) 
NOTE: A minimum 7-night-stay is required

Mbotyi River Lodge
Traveller24 recommendation: 
This is a no-fuss, no-frills holiday destination for the whole family. If you spend a week at Mbotyi, it's still not enough to enjoy all the activities on offer. Some activities - like canoeing, fishing and hiking - are free, and others - like the guided hikes - require a small fee. Nonetheless, it's a one-stop holiday destination that embodies the true definition of the word 'breakaway'. Canoeing on the river estuary is definitely one of the best things to do on a lazy Sunday afternoon. 
Price point: Between R1 000 and R1 500 per room, per night
