This Sandals Guest House is in beautiful Umhlanga Rocks, an upmarket suburb that is approximately half an hour north of Durban and close to the King Shaka International Airport. With only four luxuriously appointed suites, guests are well looked after by the owners who run the establishment and will find themselves in proximity to the beach and the many activities and attractions.

For tranquillity and some light stress relief, guests are welcome to relax and soak up the sun around the outdoor swimming pool, while taking in the view of the sea from the expansive patio or enjoy a sundowner while watching the Umhlanga sunsets from the open bar area. High-speed WiFi Internet access is available throughout this upmarket guesthouse in Umhlanga, so whether you are on business, golfing, touring or celebrating a special occasion, this hotel is ideal for those who enjoy that little extra something. For warm hospitality and a quality experience, your hosts Iain and Ingrid Schouten, welcome you.
