When it comes to spiritual enlightenment, it all starts with the self. The Lapis Lazuli crystal helps us go deep within our spirits to awaken our true destiny and divine purpose, and this is the energy of Lazuli Bush Lodge.

Lazuli Lodge is a luxurious and discreet self-catering game lodge, accommodating up to eight people, situated within Kuleni, a securely fenced nature park 18 kilometres from Hluhluwe. It stands in 150 hectares of pristine, indigenous sand forest in the heart of the Elephant Coast on the eastern seaboard of South Africa. Lazuli is a secluded, secure and private haven where one can be alone or with friends, lying at the private swimming pool or sitting around the fireplace and enjoy quiet walks and view the trees, the birds and the plains game.



Lazuli is a space for healing, rejuvenation and fun!  You and up to 7 other people can enjoy the privacy and luxury of this beautiful haven.





"Forest Bathing"

Shinrin-yoku is a term that means "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing." It was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine.



Our favourite - "Forest Bathing"

The key to unlocking the power of the forest is in the five senses. Let nature enter through your ears, eyes, nose, mouth, hands and feet. Listen to the birds singing and the breeze rustling in the leaves of the trees. Look at the different greens of the trees and the sunlight filtering through the branches. Smell the fragrance of the forest and breathe in the natural aromatherapy of phytoncides. Taste the freshness of the air as you take deep breaths.


Place your hands on the trunk of a tree. Dip your fingers or toes in a stream. Lie on the ground. Drink in the flavor of the forest and release your sense of joy and calm. This is your sixth sense, a state of mind. Now you have connected with nature. You have crossed the bridge to happiness. Kuleni  also consists of 200h of rare, untouched Sand Forest to restore your soul…
