MOSAIC is a nature lover’s paradise with nearly three miles of frontage on the Hermanus Lagoon and 2,500 acres of conservation land that extends to a pristine beach on Walker Bay, a great spot for whale-watching.
Guests are surrounded by beautiful flora and birdlife on activities that range from 4WD beach excursions, quad biking and boat cruises, to kayaking, guided nature walks and mountain biking. Excellent South African wineries are just down the road, while encounters with the Marine Big Five include whale-watching and shark cage diving.
Accommodation at the five-star Lagoon Lodge captures the essence of tranquility with just five safari-style suites woven into an ancient milkwood grove on the lagoon. Stone-and-glass walls open onto private decks with spectacular mountain views. Soft bedding lies beneath romantic netting where guests are lulled to sleep by owls and awoken by African fish eagles.
Each chalet has a bathtub large enough for two and a private outdoor shower for a true African bush experience. Boardwalks lead to the lounge, where drinks and meals
are shared outdoors or by a fireplace designed to warm up. Glass walls open onto mountain vistas, while the plunge pool overlooks gorgeous scenery and is a perfect place to spot birds.
As evening falls, the exquisite colours of the setting sun and the glorious expanse of the Southern Hemisphere’s stars fill the sky. All the food is fresh, delicious and homemade — created by the in-house chef, baker and organic gardener, with local produce also featuring.
Breakfast is a hearty fare, with healthy grains, fresh fruit and daily specials on the menu, while lunch is served picnic-style outdoors or around blazing fires. Sumptuous dinners are built around seasonal ingredients, and best paired with fine South African wine from MOSAIC’s cellar.
For ultimate rejuvenation, the MOSAIC Rain Spa offers massages and skin therapies using only natural Rain Africa products. It’s a place to focus on mind, body and soul amid a spectacular natural setting.
The mission at MOSAIC is one of restoration and renewal: renewal for all who visit, restoration of livelihoods in the local community through job creation, and restoration of the precious eco-system.
