This place is in a beautiful location and feels like an oasis from the rest of the world! I really enjoyed the beauty of the place and the accommodation. only the service was a let down, without good signage to get there and a phone that was never answered it was troublesome and frustrating getting there. Food was also great.... More

One of the best family holidays we have ever had. What a beautiful place. There is something for each person and every member of our family had a blast. We will be back next year. The food is out of this world.

We had a most enjoyable time once again at Umngazi. The food was excellent, and the staff friendly and professional. We find it the best place to relax and chill out. Two small criticisms are that children now spend a lot of time in the bar buying slush puppies and cool drinks, and the "no-wake zone" rule is not enforced.... More

Excellent family holiday. Cater for all members of the family no matter what age. The food is out of this world. Staff is friendly. The Spa with its endless view of the sea-you cannot find any better.

We flew to Durban and then drove to Port St Johns. We spent two nights at Umngazi. We stayed in # 51 Entabeni, just next to the spa. We had unspoilt views of the river mouth and the ocean. There are lots of activities to do. The place is also ideal for the little ones. Please attend to the showers... More

We were booked for 3 nights here but stayed an additional night because we loved it so. Umngazi is a great get away venue. Although it is quite a drive to get to it, once you are there you feel as if you are miles away from everything. The atmosphere is brilliantly managed. It is very much a family resort... More

An amazing experience!! Top service, friendly staff and lovely food. As an avid nature lover, could something not be done, through the community to look into the ever growing problem of the lantana? Also loved the cleaning of the beaches by community members.
