Beautiful, rustic yet luxurious, pure relaxation, friendly helpful and accommodating staff and management. Highly recommended for family vacations. Prepare for a long drive but it's worth every minute.

Wonderful time as always at Umngazi . Friendly staff, great food,fantastic scenery. The rooms all have a lovely view, either of the garden, the beach or the lagoon and are kept spotlessly clean. Our outdoor shower came with a White fronted swallow nest, with two chicks being fed as we showered, how special is that ! Evening booze cruise on... More

Amazing stay as always. Tip top service in all departments and food that continues to surpass our highest expectations. The setting is intoxicating but Umngazi provides a resort experience to match the beauty that surrounds you. An extremely tight ship all round...we'll be back and back and back again.

Having stayed at Umngazi River Bungalows quite a few times before, and at various times of the year, this was our first summer there. We arrived just after Christmas and stayed for the period over New Year. That time of year is certainly warm and some days even hot, but for some reason you don't really feel the heat, and... More

We had an excellent time at Umngazi. Loved the setting, especially the long walks on the deserted beach (except for the few cows in the evenings). We arrived on Saturday night, just in time for the phenomenal seafood buffet - lobster, prawns, calamari, oysters... delicious. We stayed in the Honeymoon bungalow and it was spectacular. The view from the double... More

We needed a relaxing holiday and we got exactly that. We had the most beautiful bungalow (room 44a and 44b). The rooms were beautiful, clean and loved the shower with a view :) The food was absolutely delicious every single day. Highlight was of course the seafood buffet, also loved the Sunday lunch braai. Our teenager children loved the teenagers... More

Umngazi River Bungalows is situated on a stunning section of the Transkei wild coast. Staff are very helpful and the facilities are excellent. I have stayed at this resort a number of times and have never been disappointed ...... until we attempted to have lunch and drinks to break our trip from PE to Durban. Management was not interested in... More

Perfect holiday- beautiful setting, friendly staff and excellent food. Ideal place to unwind and relax. Would recommend to anyone . New Years night with a Greek theme was fantastic as were the fireworks and food.

Still have to find a better value for money family vacation in RSA. Our children count the months till our next trip and so do we. It is laid back, but with quality service , best relaxation for the whole family and loads of entertainment for the kids.
