What makes Mosaic so special?

LOCATION sets Mosaic apart from all others. On the edge of the Hermanus Lagoon, Mosaic expands to a secluded part of the pristine Walker Bay Beach and Nature Reserve, the best place in the world for whale watching. As our name suggests, Mosaic offers the most multifaceted guest experience on the Whale Coast, all from our front door. With 1000 hectares and over 3 km of frontage on the Hermanus Lagoon, daytime fun varies from quad biking through fynbos clad hills, 4x4 beach excursions, relaxing lagoon cruises, kayaking, guided bird watching, wine tastings and sundowners in special places with panoramic views. Mosaic activities depart from Mosaic (without having to take a transfer many kilometers down the road).

Walker Bay, known for its “champagne air,” is a destination to be savored and where you encounter the awesome Marine Big 5:  Whale, Great White Shark, Seal, Dolphin and Penguin.  Southern Right Whales migrate from Antartica to mate and birth their young from June to December. They can be viewed sipping sparkling wine of the top of sand dunes on our 4x4 beach excursions.

Viewing the abundant marine life of Walker Bay by boat is not to be missed. Mosaic will arrange your excursion to explore the Marine Big 5. The experience being eye to eye with great white sharks (from a cage!), or boat cruising in search of whales, seals and penguins is simply thrilling.

Walker Bay is a meeting point of mountain and sea, uniquely laced with spectacular marine life, beautiful beaches, fynbos vegetation, birds, archeological caves and the continent’s southern most wineries.  Come, and experience South Africa from the beauty of our private sanctuary.

 “Stitched onto the edge of the lagoon, is Mosaic, a world that captures the quietude that is the essence of Africa.  You will be captivated by the seeming remoteness, the abundant bird life and the unique flora that is literally laid out on a plate for you as you step out of the door.”  Jane Dunn

For the ultimate private getaway, Lagoon Lodge captures the essence of tranquility with just five safari style suites woven into an ancient milkwood grove on the edge of the Hermanus Lagoon. A pampered stay here is all-inclusive with meals, adventure activities and house beverages. You can also indulge in fabulous massage and skin treatments at the Mosaic Spa (either indoor or outdoor), using organic Rain Africa products.

Stone and glass walls open onto private decks for spectacular mountain views and bird watching.  Soft bedding lies beneath romantic netting where one falls asleep listing to owls and wakes up to the sound of the African Fish Eagle. Each room has a bathtub large enough for two and a private outdoor shower for an African bush experience. Lagoon Lodge has only five chalets beautifully built safari style with stone and thatch harvested from Mosaic. A king bed or two twins can be accommodated.  Rooms include pure linen & cotton towels, organic Rain bath amenities, ultra soft bathrobes, coffee plunger, bar refrigerator, wine, sherry and fireplace.

Boardwalks under a canopy of ancient Milkwood trees lead to the lounge where drinks and meals are shared outdoors or by a fireplace that will warm your soul. A heated plunge pool overlooking the mountains is a favorite place to spot your favorite birds. And as evening falls, you will witness the exquisite colors of the sun setting and the glorious expanse of the star-filled South African sky.

The cuisine at Mosaic is fresh, delicious and the creative mastery of our chef, our baker, our gardener, and local producers. Breakfast is a hearty fare with freshly baked muffins, homemade jams, fresh fruit and a hot meal.  Lunch is served gourmet picnic style outdoors or around blazing fires when there is a chill in the air, at the Lagoon Cafe in the historic 1892 Spookhuis. Sumptuous dinners are prepared by our chef and built around organic vegetables from our garden and local seasonal ingredients…and best paired with fine South African wine from our cellar!
