Our family motto, “Keep it simple, simply the best!” is instilled into everything we do at Fairlight to create a beach stay that resonates with all things good. Whether corporate travellers, families or couples, it’s always a great pleasure to welcome new and returning guests who leave with a smile having thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing time with us.

Our famous ‘full house’ breakfast is served daily from 07h00 to 09h30 in our welcoming dining area where you can watch the sunrise over the warm Indian Ocean and maybe be lucky enough to see dolphins swim past. A delicious continental buffet is also available and orders for a hot breakfast will be taken at your table. Please discuss any special dietary requirements with the manager in advance to ensure we can accommodate you wherever we can.

House-keeping Gratuity

Our house-keeping team works extremely hard to ensure the property is well maintained, breakfast is always a delight and your rooms sparkle. For their efforts and because we don’t include gratuity on your accommodation bill, a token of appreciation for our staff in the staff tip boxes can be left at your own discretion.
