Seaside Strategies

So now that you’ve found the right venue, the next important factors to consider are accessibility, equipment, catering and budget.

We’ve all been there… those compulsory company workshops, strat sessions, activation’s and even brand launches, things that should be motivating and exciting, quickly became laborious, long winded and a daily grind of “Death by PowerPoint”.

If you are seeking increased overall productivity, creativity and engagement, what you need is a venue that offers peace, tranquility, natural lighting and fresh air. Seems obvious when you think about it, but a lot of the time conferences can become a “tick box” exercise.

At Crawford’s Beach Lodge, not only will you find that creative peaceful space, but you and your delegates will also be located at one of the few venues in the country that is so close to the sea, that the drone of the city will soon be cleansed from your minds by natures ultimate white noise, the whispering waves.

A Conference Coordinator is on hand to accommodate the style of conference you need, from School Room, Theatre Style, Boardroom or     U shape arrangement to suit your specific need or any other special arrangements you may require.

It’s no secret most delegates look forward to the food while on conference, and with Breakfasts & Dinners being included in the Accommodation Package, you can be sure of high quality, fresh and healthy meals to keep those brains functioning at breakneck speeds.

The all important relaxation time with colleagues can take place around the pool at our Bar & Restaurant, sitting on the lawns overlooking the ocean or actually on the beach with your feet in the sand, all while being spoilt by our warm hospitality and impeccable service.

Lastly, and possibly the most important currently… the budget!  With a myriad of different priced packages, from half day, full day, stay overs, as well as team building activities, Crawford’s can do it all.



Located in the quiet coastal village of Chintsa East in the Eastern Cape, Crawford’s is only 55km’s from East London Airport, with all road travel via tarred roads, making it accessible by all vehicles and simple to find off the N2.

With three different conference arenas on offer, all are kitted with state-of-the-art equipment, high speed internet and ZOOM Meeting functionality, along with all the general basic stationery requirements. 

Crawford’s Beach Lodge is certified Level 2 BEE and verified by SEESA.  We are also certified COVID-19 compliant by the D.O.H.
