Lots and lots of shops and eateries. A good way to spend a wet day in Durban, but in fact this feels like any shopping mall in any large city. Brand names abound and if you want to spend some money, this is the place. There are also cinemas, water park etc. Safe and relaxed.

You can spend your life shopping here. I thought we had cool malls in cape town, but this wins hands down. Not only does it have plenty of shops but entertainment galore for the family. There is also a variety of restaurants, any cuisine you can think of. Must visit if in durban.

The entertainment area has something for everybody including a mini raceway and waterpark. As a family we made a full day of it and had a lot of fun.... More

Fantastic shopping centre, probably one of the best in SA. Shops include boutique and affordable. Movie houses, games room and water attractions to appeal to youngsters. Restuarants seem to change hands yearly - so cannot comment on them. Although they do have late night shopping in the season, the youngsters drinking from their cars and playing loud music is offputting.... More

During our stay in umhlanga, my fiance and I visited this mall more than twice and we still would go back anytime... There is ample and secure parking and the parking fee is very cheap considering the long hours we spent going from shop to shop. The cinema is enormous, so much entertainment around that area, however, I lost my... More
