where you’d rather be

The Wild Coast of South Africa is a place of extreme natural beauty. More than that, it's a place of magic. 

Offering eco-driven, semi self-catering, 420-friendly accommodation in Chintsa East on the Wild Coast of South Africa, Purple Haze Eco Lodge is situated on a hillock in the seaside village of Chintsa East and surrounded by a state protected green zone of indigenous coastal forest.  We are 800 m from the beach.


What makes us special is our truly magical location and how the design of the lodge interacts with its surroundings through decor and floor-to-ceiling glass doors in all of our units. Here one feels part of nature by just looking up.  At the same time, attention to detail and comfort makes one forget you're in an eco lodge.

The lodge consists of five units sleeping two guests each and offer a 180° sea view right from your very bed. Your own private balcony overlooks coastal forests, our young indigenous garden and the Indian ocean. It's the perfect spot to enjoy your toke in the sweet, unpolluted sea air.

Guests have 24/7 access to the 420-friendly Green Deck, our viewing deck with it's 360° views over 15 km of beach, Indian ocean, the Chintsa river valley and lagoon, the Amathola indigenous coastal forest as well as Olivewood, a world class golf course for a 'backyard' view.

Come ... Fall in love with this special place of magic and healing ... Rediscover what life is about ...  Balance body and mind ... Explore the unspoilt Wild Coast ... Let the sound of crashing waves soothe you to sleep ... Make beautiful memories you’ll always remember.

Come ... it's where you'd rather be.
