This delightful bit of paradise offers pure relaxation or a wealth of activity options. Areena Riverside Resort with its own private game reserve, is situated on the banks of the tidal Kwelera River leading to nearby Cintsa beach.

Areena is a place to escape the hectic world, relax and rejuvenate. It is a place to reconnect with nature. A place to become grounded. This is a wholesome place, a place where family values count. A place where children can wander around in safety.

Accommodation includes a variety of luxury four, star fully equipped, self catering family cottages, rondavels, lovely riverside wooden chalets and double en suite units. From the riverside chalet decks, enjoy viewing game and birds. All accommodation includes balconies, well-equipped kitchens and seating areas with TVs. Each has private barbecue facilities. Fine-quality linen and towels are provided. There are also nice camping sites and facilities with special pensioner deals.

Enjoy a meal in the riverside Areena Quays Restaurant when you do now feel like cooking. Open to the public, they have a fabulous Sunday buffet. You can order take away pizzas too. The pub with large screen TV makes a great place to watch a game.

The Areena Spa has a wide range of treatments.

An Adventure Village offers ATV tours in the game reserve, an interesting zip line tour, paintball and pellet gun target shooting and more. A special feature which will delight young and old, is a male giraffe, Abby, who loves a gentle touch from guests. The quad bike safari, an option of 20, 60 or 120 minutes, is a must followed by sundowners at the river front restaurant.

Guests can fish, hike and canoe, kayak or cruise to the river mouth and beach. Boat parking is possible along the jetty.

This is a children’s paradise, a place where kids can be kids. Our swimming pool, kiddies pool, tennis court and playground will keep them entertained for hours while you get a chance to relax. Our touch farm with sheep, goats, turkeys and emus always love a visit and welcome any leftover vegetable scraps.
