Sibaya Lodge Reviews & Information
Use the drop down below to find out more information about Sibaya Lodge.
The Sibaya Hotel & Entertainment Kingdom is in KwaZulu-Natal, on Durban's North Coast. Located just outside of Umhlanga on the lush North Coast in South Africa, the lodge is only a stone's throw away from the Durban CBD. One can reach this entertainment resort by taking the N2 Highway Northbound and turning at the Sibaya interchange just after Mount Edgecombe.
The resort basks lazily in the green hills just north of Durban. Conveniently situated between Umdloti and Umhlanga, it is the ideal getaway for those seeking all the thrills and spills, laughs and luxury KwaZulu-Natal has to offer. With every convenience from state-of-the-art conference facilities to the placid ocean views, the retreat is nothing short of being home away from home.
Beautifully located upon one of the lush green hills of northern Durban in Umhlanga overlooking the ocean off the Eastern Seaboard, the copper-plated domes of the hotel shimmer spectacularly in the generous African sun. Besides the Hotel offers an abundance of fun activities. In the various restaurants of the resort, different dining facilities await the guests.
There are two main dining options; one being the eccentric ‘Aqua’ and the other is called the 'Royal Court.' The Aqua dining room provides guests with a view of the aquarium and serves a large variety of diverse foods that include: salads, grills, casseroles, Tandoori dishes, curries, carvery, and desserts.
The other, the Royal Court is an a la carte based cuisine. Here guests can host private parties and dine among friends. The Zulu Theater and the Krakatoa Action Bar offer a kaleidoscope of action. Taking its inspiration from African architecture, the thatched Izulu Theater at the Lodge is an open-sided venue ideal for major theatre productions, events, and product launches.
In addition to these, there is an authentic Boma, on offer which is crafted in traditional African style, accommodates up to 280 people for an unforgettable evening under the stars. This experience reflects the rustic simplicity of an enchanting African village. A central log fire, wooden tables and benches, and exotic barbeques, enhanced by African dancers, drumming and reggae music .. what more would a person need to have the time of their lives.
The Mangwanani Sibaya is at the resort on the North Coast about 26 km from Durban. It has a unique venue that embraces traditional Zulu architecture in a typical village layout.
The venue has magnificent sea views, and a visit leaves a long-lasting feeling of having been to a unique place. Away from the main Complex, the path meanders next to a stream. Crossing on a wooden bridge, it leads to the Gates of the Village. It is here, as is the custom of the Zulu people that permission is requested to enter. Once given, the gates open, and Zulus will sing and dance as they escort the Guests to the Great Hut.
