A seaside resort of serenity, charm, and natural beauty

A short 60 min car ride along the N2 from East London leads you through the winding and weaving landscape synonymous with the Eastern Cape. Green grasslands dotted with cattle and sheep pass your eye as you settle into the rhythm of the journey. Leaving behind the hustle and bustle, the demands and expectations, the grind.

Turning off the N2 towards Kei Mouth, the road weaves its way down to the banks of the Kei River. A bustle of locals converging on the edges of the banks, showcasing their handmade wears of beautifully weaved baskets and beaded goods. Humble, happy faces greeting you as you reach the water’s edge where the ferry awaits to float you across the Kei into the Transkei.

A multitude of coloured huts dotted across the rolling hills are a vast contrast to the built-up cities. Children, live-stock, and pedestrians clothed in traditional gear pass by in a refreshing and nostalgic way. The short 11km drive through the vast expanse of open land gives way to the breath-taking view as you approach the entrance to Seagulls Beach Hotel. An exhale, a deep inhale of fresh sea air; the distant sounds of seagulls in signals the start of a surreal and restful stay.

Stay as long as you like

Our Facilities

We are an old-style, rustic family hotel celebrating the old-world charm and ruggedness of the Wild Coast. Our spacious grounds stretch across the sealine creating spaces for families to connect, couples to unwind and children to be children.

Lazy beach days, poolside book reading, fishing, hiking, shell collecting, and rock pool gazing are all a part of the Seagulls experience; breakfast, lunch and dinner catered by expert local hands and sundowners on our deck overlooking the crashing waves lend themselves to a peaceful sleep in our clean and spacious rooms. Until you awake to the sounds of the sea to do it all again.


Our newly renovated rooms are dotted around our spacious grounds, offering a tranquil and charming space to unwind and recharge. Serenity, you soon realize, is created not by the absence of sound, but the presence of a certain kind of sound–specifically, the sound of the sea which can be heard as you drift off to sleep.

Inside our family and double rooms, you are met with a clean and uncluttered space. Calmness and comfort are an important part of the Seagulls experience, and the fresh, light rooms ensure the sea air and sunshine fill the space. You will experience simple elegance and attention to detail at every turn.
