Posted by Steff on Sun September 11, 2022.

A beach holiday at Timeless Lodge in Umkomaas is an ideal way for guests to enjoy a fun-filled vacation without getting bored and the health benefits cannot be ignored.

If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with an opportunity to reconnect with nature and yourself, then Timeless Lodge, a beautiful and unique bed and breakfast, located in Umkomaas is the perfect place for you.

Who hasn't been prescribed some good old sea air by someone at some point in their lives?

So, as I have always loved being close to the sea and how it makes me feel, I spent a little time looking into the "science" of why this may be. Although it turns out that the reasons are not very "scientific", the benefits and reasons do make sense.

An interesting fact is that because sea air has a high salt content it is relatively thicker, meaning that as you breathe it in it clears your throat and respiratory system, allowing cleaner and better air quality resulting in better sleep and a healthier you.  For all our stressed-out city dwellers, this may just be the cure you need.

Also, did you know that walking on the beach sand is like a natural pedicure? The best part it is free. The sand sediment helps exfoliate dead skin which keeps your feet and skin healthy.

An interesting one is that you tend to be more inclined to exercise as apparently being close to the sea, increases our desire to get outdoors.  Who doesn't love a run or stroll along the beach?  So if you have been putting off that run, book a holiday at Timeless Lodge and we will help you get running, even if it just starts with a casual stroll along the beach.

My favorite one is that it brings out the "inner child" in me. It reminds me of so much that was good in my childhood.  The smell of suntan cream evokes a myriad of memories.  Eating icecream.  Looking for shells.  Exploring the rock pools.  Ending with a braai, my family and friends gathered around.   Such good times.

The Umkomaas area offers guests a wide range of outdoor activities. You can avail of water sports such as surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, swimming, boating, parasailing, jet skiing, windsurfing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, horse riding, hiking, mountain biking, golfing, tennis, volleyball, basketball, football, cricket, soccer, and many others.

We would love to hear from you, about what makes the sea special for you!  Does it evoke memories and is there a benefit that you can share with us?

Spring is here.  Take advantage of our special Spring Break Special Rate.  A deluxe king room with a sea view awaits you.  Your room has its own en-suite shower and private patio to enjoy stunning views of the beautiful Indian Ocean. There are plenty of good and reasonably priced restaurants in the area.  We offer our guests a self-catering kitchen and a well-equipped braai area if you prefer to eat in and spend a day at the Lodges private swimming pool.  Your choices are endless.

Don’t miss out, book your stay.

Clint and I look forward to welcoming you.
