The Spotted Grunter Resort, sheltered by Mount Thesiger behind and Mount Sullivan across the river, is a piece of heaven. The 2 sandstone mountains form the heads of the river mouth that flows into the Indian Ocean. Located on the Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa, Port St. Johns, with its 3 beaches, is known for its success for fishing for the likes of grunter, shad, kob, garrick, and even sharks. The epitome of a perfect location for fishing, nestled flawlessly next to the Umzimvubu River, the piece of heaven became The Spotted Grunter Resort.

The resort’s beautifully decorated luxury log cabins each contain a well-equipped kitchenette with a fridge, gas stove, microwave, cutlery and crockery, as well as a living area with air-conditioning, a fan, a safe for valuables, and a TV with local channels or selected DStv channels. All cabins have their own braai area and private deck, as well as their own allocated parking.

The en-suite lodge rooms feature a double bed, with the exception of the family room that also features an additional single bed, and an en-suite bathroom with a shower. These rooms also have kitchenettes.

A fully stocked bait and tackle shop provides all you need for a fishing getaway at the Spotted Grunter resort, with braai supplies for an evening on the deck of your cabin.

The a-la-carte restaurant boasts an assortment of meals, which can be enjoyed on a deck overlooking the swimming pool. The fully licensed Anglers Arms Pub is perfect for a cold beer after a hot day along the river, equipped with a pool table and darts board.
