Oceana is a truly luxurious property in a stunning location overlooking the Indian Ocean some 10 kilometres north of Port Alfred. We stayed for 2 nights and were the only guests although the owner of the property - Mr Rip Miller from Austin, Texas - was visiting at the same time. The first night we stayed in the Lodge Suite that we had booked which was exceptionally well appointed. However on the second night Mr Miller kindly offered us the opportunity to move into one of the Ocean Suites which was just out of this world. We were served lunch by the beach spotting whales breaching regularly in the ocean, and dinner in our suite as the sun set. Food was plentiful and well cooked and the choice of wines very good. Apart from all the physical attributes what really stood out at Oceana was the service. From Joint General Managers Hennie and his wife Adrienne, through Assistant GM Michael and ALL the staff no one could do enough to help and pamper us and this really contributed to our stay.
As others have commented this is not a wildlife reserve where you will see any of the Big 5 but it was still interesting and enjoyable to see various animals on our 2 game drives.
We would wholeheartedly recommend Oceana.
