Nearby Attractions

Umhlanga is a very popular tourist beach destination for both South African and international visitors. The climate in this region of South Africa is subtropical, with even the winter temperatures seldom dropping below 20 °C, making for a stunning outdoor paradise all year round. The beaches in and around Umhlanga are safe and well-protected, the ocean is warm and bright, suitable for swimming and other exciting water sports such as body boarding and surfing.

The famous Gateway Shopping Center & Entertainment Complex is only a short walk away from the hotel, and visitors will find a great variety of boutiques and shops within. Likewise, many restaurants can be found here that range from fast food outlets to fine dining.

Further afield from this tourist spot in KwaZulu-Natal, there are plenty of fun and adventurous activities and attractions to partake in. For those interested in marine life, a visit to the unique Natal Sharks Board in Herrwood Drive will provide a fascinating insight into the work being done by these devoted conservationists to minimise the impact that sharks and humans have on one another. 

If you’d like to get up-close to some of the marine inhabitants of the coastline, there are registered marine safari operators in the area, as well as various dive operators ready to show you the beautiful life under the waves. Another option is to visit the uShaka Marine World in Durban. This world-class aquarium houses a vast collection of marine life, including sharks, turtles, dolphins, and beautifully coloured reef fish.

If you enjoy taking your chances at winning the jackpot, there are two impressive casinos just a short drive away from the hotel. The Sibaya Casino is 20 minutes away while the Suncoast Casino is in the city of Durban near the beachfront.

Alternately, you could visit Crocodile Creek or Crocodile Valley, to learn more about these ancient predators, or for something less toothy, have a stroll around the Umgeni Bird Park that is home to hundreds of indigenous and exotic species.
