We enjoyed a two night stay at Lalaria and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. A short walk to the beach or enjoying the view from the balcony were equally enjoyable... But nothing could beat the hospitality and authenticity of our hosts, Carol & Errol! Absolutely nothing to fault at this resort. Mr & Mrs Naidoo

this felt like our first home. Words cannot express - Caryl and Errol are you for real? From delicious breakfast to catering to our every whim!!! they are not only hosts but family as well, shared so many special moments and ideas. What took us so long to "discover" this heaven? We are still reeling from all the pampering. Seeing... More

I cannot imagine a B&B that can beat Lalaria with its combination of a glorious view over the Indian Ocean; elegant public rooms leading onto a huge terrace from which to enjoy it, (and even spot the occasional whale in the right season and schools of dolphins year-round); a great breakfast which offers everything from a choice of cereals to...

I brought a small group here in October 2012 at the end of a touring holiday in Kwa-Zulu Natal and we all agreed that it was the perfect end to a fantastic holiday. Caryl and Errol were lovely hosts and their home was a delight to share, full of beautiful works of art. Our room was huge with beautiful views... More

The South African Tourism and Grading Council has awarded 5 stars to his establishment - and more than deservedly so. The owners Caryl and Errol are superb and charming hosts and a veritable fountain of information and conversation without being obtrusive. The five very large and comfortable rooms are housed in a grand whitewashed Mediterranean-style villa situated in a quiet... More

We spent a few nights at Lalaria Lodge on our arrival to Durban & found this a wonderful B&B we'll most certainly be returning to. Sitting partway up a hill, it's only a few minute's walk to the beach yet high enough to offer great ocean views. Our room was on the lower level leading out to a lovely patio... More

We found Lalaria on the internet. Very pleasantly surprised as usually the internet pictures are far better than the actual.. Large airey room with large bathroom. Beautiful sea views. Breakfasts really good - cooked to your personal likes.

Unfortunately we only had one night here, the house and room was immaculate. We had a room on the lower level and the view was spectacular especially with the sun coming up in the morning! The breakfast was good and plentiful. Would highly recommend staying here.

We did stay there in Nov./Dec. 12 for two weeks. The location is very good, with full view to the ocean. Even a road is just going near but below the front of the gurst house, there are most times nothing to hear from any traffic. The room was large and comfortable. The owner couple is very nice and likes... More
