About Benguela

Welcome to Benguela, an intimate, exclusive guesthouse offering comfortable accommodation featuring spectacular views of the ocean. A mere five minute stroll takes you to the waters’ edge where whales come home each year from June to November.

Benguela offers guests an accommodation choice of three impeccably decorated bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom within the main house. Two rooms have magnificent sea views, and the third room offers a garden view. Additionally, there is a spacious two-bedroom, self-catering cottage with its own private entrance and outdoor braai-lapa. Each room offers a flat screen TV, satellite channels, mini bar and coffee tray. Some rooms have a private patio.

Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the property. Benguela offers an outdoor swimming pool, with sweeping sea views, sun loungers, cocktail bar and guest lounge.

Our in-house restaurant offers mouth-watering breakfasts, lunches, dinners or any delectable snack your taste buds may crave. Service is seated or in your room.

Benguela is the perfect location for the shark cage diving & viewing tours and the whale watching tours. In partnering with Shark Alley Dive & Travel we offer our special guests preferred rates on these tours.
