The week's breakaway holiday was everything we could expect, the reason why we return there twice a year. Beautiful ocean view, clean, well equipped and modern rooms make this my favourite resort to visit. I recommend uMhlanga Sands Resort to anyone who would like to have a very relaxed and comfortable value for money vacation at the North Coast of... More

On my stay in Durban I stayed at Umhlanga Sands. The view of the hotel room was spectacular and the rooms for family were one small room in the entrance and one big room! There is so much to do for the kids with a mini soccer field, games room and pool activities! There is two restaurants which are Spur... More

Great location, good facilities, and a full holiday program for children in a secure and well-maintained resort makes for an ideal beach holiday destination. We spent the last week of 2014 - peak season, so very busy. But still so well organized. The Spur and Maestro restaurants were short-staffed during rush hour, so service was slow. Best choose one of... More

The room was not what we were told (supposed to be self catering, they were not). Braai nights were a nightmare also no where to eat. Friends of ours paid R2500.00 per night with a balcony, we paid R4000.00 per night and had 2 beds in the kitchen??

First of all, notice the new spelling of the resort. It used to be Umhlanga Sands. Now it is uMhlanga Sands. The difference is because the "U" is not really supposed to be pronounced and it's also the way that the name is to be spelled in the Zulu language. I stayed at the resort from 17 November 2014 to...

This resort is ideally situated - close to the beach, Gateway Shopping Mall, the central business district and close to the Casino and Durban. Spending a week here is too short to explore all the exciting things around us. The resort also has an entertainment programme for adults and children. If you decide to spend your time at the resort,... More

The resort is quite centrally located in Umhlanga, in the bustling "cbd" and a stones throw from Gateway Theatre of shopping. rooms (4th floor upwards) have a great view of the pool area and ocean. Bathrooms are decently sized, however out shower door needed a replacement - didn't close properly (water on the floor when showering). The views from main... More
