Amazing out of this world visual experience. Supreme service and stay! The room and view from the veranda is spectacular. Fantastic staff. Fabulous breakfast. Loved the peace and quiet of the hotel and location for restaurants for dinner.

Much more as a hotel, this place is staying between Zulu art, the collection of art, the decoration of it, makes it very special. The view in the Kloof is limited. For diner there was a "take away" delivery service from outside the hotel.

The building and contents are amazing, and we enjoyed hearing some of the history and story behind the establishment of Amazulu. I was a little concerned that it would be like sleeping in a museum! but, not so. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, the rooms the last word in comfort, and the manager, Alta, went far out of her... More

I stayed at Ammazulu for a weekend in June. Rooms were spacious and luxurious. Alta was very helpful with any requests. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. Definitely 5 star. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Gloriously eccentric dream like experience. You drive up strap twisting hidden drive way though a rough gravel rd surrounded by jungle to arrive at a fantasy palace. Two story colours bejewelled with mosaic and African beading create an avenue into an art studed environment. Defiantly unique. Excellent food, extra large rooms and bathrooms.

Our visit to Ammazulu African Palace was an experience we will take a while to forget. The attack on your senses visually is the most amazing thing about this special place. It's a nice quiet, serene place to escape to after the noise and hectic pace of Durban.A tip I would give to future visitors is to put aside an... More

We stayed at the venue over the July race weekend. We arrived late and received a warm and friendly welcome from Alta. The breakfast was first rate, fresh fruit, muesli with yoghurt and freshly cooked hot eggs, bacon and bangers. Most unusual venue and a visual feast with surprises at every turn. Alta was a most accommodating hostess and arranged... More

We stayed at Ammazulu Palace for the weekend with a Daddy's Deal voucher. Rooms really large with separate lounge area and private patio to relax on as well as a large bedroom and bathroom. Very comfortable king size bed. Words can't describe the place as it is really amazing in a weird way. There's so much to see and take... More

Carefully selected displays of rich Zulu culture make this palace a place of cultural wonder! I would recommend it for business or leisure - a very comfortable space for couples looking for an alternitive get away and peace of mind.
