La Rochelle is a little Paradise which lays nestled close to the main blue flag status swimming beach in Meerensee, the beach and lake suburb of Richards Bay, which has incidentally become one of the most popular holiday destinations in KwaZulu Natal because it is so central to so many game parks and off coarse the many marine sport and recreational activities.

It is a 3-star accredited facility which is run by the most warm and welcoming staff. Our units are extremely clean, warm and tidy. Nothing is compromised.

Your stay will feel like home away from home. No wonder we have such a huge client base which come back week after week and year after year. Both for vacation and their line of duty and due to the scope of their work at most of the large companies which surround us.

When one drives past La Rochelle, there is not nearly as much to observe. However our paradise lays in the rear of our premises, where you wakes up with the splish-splash of the old water wheel at the koi pond.

Due to the large veriaty of bird life that frequent our many huge trees on our property, we are affiliated to the Zululand Bird Watchers Assosiation and form part of the Bird Watching Route.

At night when the garden lights come on, you can almost hear the goblins and the fairies in the garden talking as they prepare for their nights activities.

No wonder all our guests have to be lured from their cameras and the beautiful garden into the dining hall for a huge farm house breakfast in the morning.

Guests may choose to spend time on one of the numerous popular beaches, all only a few minutes away by car, or soak up the sun and sip cocktails while relaxing around one of La Rochelle’s two private pools.

The Tuzi-Gazi Waterfront is only 3 minutes drive away from us, where you can enjoy lovely seafood platters or matured steaks while enjoying the relaxed view of the marine and Small Craft Harbour.

Enjoy the warm hospitality in our 3-star graded Guest House with 9 colourful en-suite bedrooms all with TV, M-Net, 2 movie and 2 sports channels. Refrigerators, coffee / tea facilities and full toiletries are available in all these rooms. In addition there are 4 self catering units with fully equipped kitchens and their own separate braai facilities. All rooms and units are fully serviced on a daily basis.

The beautiful en suite bedrooms and self contained units all have air conditioning and overhead fans to ensure perfect climate control in this warm tropical climate.

A full South African breakfast is served supplemented by fruits and juices to ensure that you can go out and enjoy the many activities that are available.

At La Rochelle we are also blessed with a huge 36 foot Marlin and bottom fishing deep-sea sport fishing charter boat which is skippered by ourselves. We also have fish cleaning and fish freezing facilities available. Just click on our deep sea fishing sub heading to view.

We also cater for the fisherman who wants to bring his own ski-boat. We have created special parking bays behind secure electric fencing.
