The Laughing Forest Resort. Elysium, South Coast, Kwazulu-Natal

Self Catering Accommodation

Accommodation at the Resort consists of Family Cabins and B&B Rooms.


There are 5 family cabins scattered amongst the bush. The wooden cabins are often described as rustic as they have been built to fit in with the 'in the bush on the beach theme'.

Some people remark on their size relative to their own large home but here in the coastal dune forest it is more a matter of keeping in balance with our 'space for species' context. We have mongoose, buck, wild cats, porcupine, monkeys, leguaan and many other bird species to consider.

The family cabins are 50m2 and sleep 5 people (1 double bed and 3 single beds), are fully equipped and include the following:

  • Lounge (includes, bunk bed & single bed)
  • Main bedroom (Double bed)
  • Bathroom (Shower, toilet & wash hand basin)
  • Kitchen – fully equipped for self-catering
  • Patio
  • Sundeck
  • Braai facilities

Some of the units include TV with Open View TV. Breakfast can be included on request.


There are 7 B&B rooms, each with en-suite bathrooms. Two B&B Rooms share a small kitchen, which is equipped with fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster, crockery & cutlery.

The B&B rooms sleep maximum 2 people (Double/Twin or King beds). B&B rooms can include or exclude breakfast, according to your requirements.
