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

If you have time to idle away, and not much to do in town, Gateway is an interesting mall to spend time lazing around in one of the many restaurants sipping your coffee and watch the world go by. Good shopping opportunites too, perhaps could be a bit pricey on wallet if you are on a shoe string budget.

Gateway has all the shops, eating places, cinemas etc. of any large mall in SA. What differentiates Gateway is the architecture's ability to handle crowds. Even at peak holiday season, one can walk freely along the corridors that lead to the various shops. This in itself makes shopping more pleasurable. Over and above this it has some upmarket boutiques that... More

My husband and I go to Umhlanga Rocks on an annual basis. Gateway Mall is the perfect place to browse through the many shops and watch a movie on a rainy day. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from. During our recent trip we discovered Mozambik (see my review) restaurant and we had a fantastic meal there. If you... More
