The Hatchery

Description

The Hatchery was a prawn breeding facility on a lagoon overlooking a deserted beach and nature reserve. It makes for a unique destination for any visitor to the North Coast.
Be warned, it is a different kind of place and comes with a twist. If you really want us to bore you with the details the facility has been “lightly” renovated – the end result is a unique blend of comfort and rustic cool. The Hatchery is all about chilling out, letting loose, and reconnecting.

Check out the room layouts and rates if cash is tight save a few bucks and squeeze in with some buddies or if you’re feeling flush or grumpy chill out on your own.

The Hatchery is less than an hour from Durban – that means no one needs to know where you’ve been. Low slung cars can scrape on the road in so leave the Beemer at home for this one or take your time on the way in.

We stepped out and put in linen, bedding, towels and even air-cons and you don’t have to share your public with undesirables. No baths, only en-suites with double showers which are good for washing kids once they’ve had their full and um – well we’d just rather not say.

The communal kitchen and dining table is kitted for any culinary adventure you may want to try your hand at, and a cool place to hang out in inclement weather.
We are self-catering; bringing your own supplies in is recommended or you also have the option for catering on request.

The communal kitchen(DIY) is pretty well kitted and quite a cool place to hang out or if you’re feeling wistful try the chill out spot or one of the lagoons beaches for solace. There are plenty of spots which show different aspects of the bush and beach environment right at the Hatchery or if you prefer to explore try Casuarina Island or one of the lagoons beaches a stone’s throw away. There are many things to do at the Hatchery. It’s up to you to make them happen!

The butlers are available to assist, advice, and make your stay as comfortable as possible – they can do anything you don’t want to (even taking the little monsters – oops we mean darlings – off your hands) or if you just get too chilled out to do anything at all it doesn’t matter, enjoy!!!!
