Gonana’s ‘secret season’ is calling


THE eco-conscious Gonana Collection on Bekbaai beach in the calm and tranquil village of Paternoster on the West Coast of South Africa, is always a great place for a holiday getaway no matter what the season.

At Gonana, which means “to embrace” in isiZulu, winter is welcomed as the “secret” season – a time to turn inwards, a time to reflect a time to enjoy long, and a time to keep the winter chill at bay in the warm and comforting embrace of Gonana.

Here are five reasons to book a stay at Gonana Collection this winter:

  • Winter Warmer Stay for Three Pay for Two special for all the properties – valid from 1 June to 31 August 2023
  • Dinners (must be pre-booked) and cheese platters will be served at the guesthouse during the winter months (June – August 2023)
  • Guests at the houses (Aloe and Acacia) will receive a complimentary breakfast (served at the guesthouse from 9.30am) during the winter months (June – August 2023)
  • Electric blankets and heaters have been added to all rooms
  • The KolKol is available for use by studio and villa guests during the winter months for an additional R450, as Gonana provides the wood

Ts&Cs apply.

Gonana Collection’s properties comprise its flagship property Gonana Guesthouse – an exclusive blend of authenticity and comfort with six double rooms, one triple room and one apartment, and the distinction of being the first sustainable and environmentally conscious guesthouse in Paternoster; its two fully furnished, self-catering houses – the two-bedroomed, four-sleeper Acacia and the one-bedroomed, three-sleeper Aloe (an Afristay Pet-Friendly Destination 2022 award winner), both designed to provide convenience, comfort and privacy for families and their four-legged friends; the three en-suite bedroom Coral Villa, renovated and refurbished from the oldest fisherman villa on the Bekbaai side of Paternoster; and three self-catering units – The Scallop, Oyster and Mussel Studios.

A 2022 TripAdvisor’s Excellence award winner Gonana Collection is self-sufficient, solar-powered, everything is fresh and organic, it follows the philosophy of “buying local, thinking global”, empowers women wherever and whenever possible, it is proudly LGBTQ-friendly, and it is an inclusive space for all who enjoy and appreciate nature and are environmentally conscious.
