Had a lovely 2 nights stay at Umngazi. What a beauty full setting.Food very good. Spa very good and relaxing. Bungalows are in serious need of an upgrade.If you look for peace and quiet then you should book a chalet far away from the reception.Lot's of families with little kids around the reception and dining area.All in all a place...

This is really a beautiful place to stay on the Wild Coast. The rooms are fantastic and the facilities are superb. We stayed two nights and had a great time walking along the coastline. The food was great and the staff very helpful. Our only complaint was that it doesn't really cater for those people who liked to strike out... More

We had a great time! Get involved in the activities they offer and don't be like a lot of people who just lie next the pool like seals! There's time to do everything... Beautiful scenery. Abundance of food! You walk in and pig out!

My mom and I took my 3 kids for a weekend. The resort is STUNNINGLY beautiful. The bungalows are nestled on the hills amongst lush vegetation. We had a 2 roomed-2 floor bungalow which was lovely. The main-en-suite had a shower which was open on the one-side with just a 3/4 wall of logs for privacy. It was a lovely... More

Umngazi is a unique destination. We loved our holiday here with friends and all our kids. Their ability to cater to children and let parents feel like they are also on holiday is not found in many other Southern African destinations, at least not to the level that you will find at Umngazi. From the kids dinning room, play areas,... More

Tip: Driving - check your travel time and add on an extra two hours. The last stretch is a winding road with lots of cattle and goats crossing :) All meals included: What a treat! Amazing dishes to choose from! Enjoy the Spa, Long walks on the beach and just relaxing next to the pool. Just what we needed.

Loved our stay, I did however feel that the property needs some love. Couple of maintance issues here and there (light bulbs not working in the bathrooms, shower door not closing) the managers are aware of it. Food, service was amazing as always. Will deff go back.
