The first impression upon arrival was that of a very classy lodge, although our experience during check-in was not a good one. Despite reception being rather quiet, we had to wait for quite a while before being attended to. Our room was not ready when we arrived at 14:30, and was not serviced yet. However that did not dampen our... More

I stayed one night in a standard twin room which had 2 luxury double size beds and a bathroom with large bath and separate shower. The room is big, spacious and had a superb view of the rolling hills. The room had a tea and coffee station, mini fridge and range of bathroom amenities and nice flat screen TV. The... More

I booked on line as I previously stayed at the hotel and not the lodge. There is a big difference in the rooms. The lodge was disappointing and very basic in comparison to the hotel rooms. The room price is not worth the basic amenities. The TV picture reception is poor. The bathroom is very basic and not what I... More

We went to the Sibaya for the day. Not like other Sun International resorts. The casino is the same but not too much in the way of other facilities. There are no shops or boutiques except for one sweet shop. The buffet restaurant was very good and the staff were excellent. We walked down to the spa and the staff... More

We stayed at the Sibaya Lodge as my husband was working and the location was perfect. He left early in the morning and came back after 5pm. I was left on my own for the day - but there was so much to do. The casino is a very short walk away and the complex also has movies, restaurants, fast... More

Lovely views. Very close to the airport and Umhlanga. Far enough from the busy city. Clean and spacious rooms. Friendly staff. Breakfast can be better, but breakfast is just breakfast. Nice cosy casino. I will make this a must stop-over everytime I go to Natal.

A bit of a drive to central Durban but if you looking for some peace and quite time this will be the place!! restaurants are clean and having a choice of food is great when you have children... More

Room 2024 This hotel is isolated, on a hill overlooking Durban and as such has magnificent 360 degree views. It is visible for miles around and stands in beautiful grounds with a large Koi Carp pool. Good sized bedroom and large bathroom which would benefit from a refurb. The shower tray is grubby and needs replacing. Two queen sized beds... More
