Shaka’s Seat offers luxury self-catering accommodation in Shaka's Rock on the KwaZulu-Natal North Coast. Come for a special one-night stay, a relaxing weekend or your annual holiday. Shaka’s Seat is situated against the side of a hill with stunning sea views, and just three-minute stroll will take you to the Catfish Beach and lovely tidal pools. We are also an easy 20 minute drive from King Shaka International Airport.

Shaka’s Seat offers seven beautiful self-catering suites. Come and enjoy a drink whilst relaxing on the private undercover wooden decks and enjoying the stunning sea views or get refreshed with a dip in the swimming pool which also overlooks the beach. There are plenty of barbecue decks to choose from and we are also within close proximity to numerous good restaurants, takeaways, superette, and launderette.

Our units now offer the DStv hotel boutique which includes M-Net, all the Movie Magic channels and all the sports and news channels.

      In general every thing is good only the cutlery could be improved. And when travel the ladies need a hear drier. When flying in it is not always possible to carry everything around. And for the price of the room per night I would have expected a hair drier and least 4 plates of each kitchen cutlery that is the same

      It's a beautiful place,clean and well decorated.The only problem is the "king sized bed" which is actually 2 single beds pushed together and it's uncomfortable sleeping on it because it keeps moving and leaving a space in between.
