This is the best location in Durban. Safe area for locals and tourists. Luxury for those that need the extra service and laid back for those that want to go unnoticed!!

This will sound like a biased review, as i live here. Beautiful place and cater for shopping, beach, holidays etc.etc. if you have not visited Umhlanga then you have not seened Durban. This should be the most popular place in Durban. Too many attractions to mention!

No visit to South Africa to my sister who lives in Kloof is complete without also heading for Umhlanga Rocks. For us it is the complete package,restaurants,bars & shops all within easy walking distance from the hotels; the icing on the cake being the beach, which seems to go on for ever whether walking left or right.This beach is a...

I have been here so many times, and absolutely love it. There is lots to do here, many pubs and restaurants, that are all top quality and well priced. And the beach here is lovely.

This is the hub of activity in Etekweni. The shopping is magnamacious and ample. The restaurants all serve good food and the best hotels in South Africa are available. One can enjoy a good meal at most of the restaurants at a reasonable price, which cannot readily be said of other Durban outlets. The night life is good and rumbacious... More
