One of the most amazing places I have stayed in. The rooms were great and the artwork incredible. Everywhere you looked was something new and eye-catching. You can spend days there and still not take it all in. Lovely garden as well and lovely views of the gorge. Definitely not to be missed.

It is like being in a fairytale. The rooms are excellent. The artwork is amazing. The views are magnificent over the gorge. Service is great. It is truly a palace. Unlike any place I have stayed in the 36 countries I have visited.

I loved the view from the dining area balcony. I was there with my husband for our honeymoon (for one night) and our breakfast (the next day) had hair in it. My husband found a long hair in his mushrooms, and I found some hair in my scrambled eggs. We were disgusted and stopped eating immediately and left - without... More

A truly spectacular five star venue for you to unwind and experience a special stay inside the elaborately crafted beaded and mosaic columns and decorated walkways, halls and bedrooms full of African craft. Truly a destination where you can also pamper yourself in our sauna or steam room or merely lounge on one of the many decks overlooking the beautiful natural surroundings with zebra grazing a few meters away and eagles soaring overhead in the reserve. It is also possible to take a leisurely nature walk along the top of the gorge or play golf at the nearby country club. All this and more a mere 20 minutes’ drive from Durban city center awaits you. Our chefs will welcome you to Ammazulu Palace Boutique Hotel: A visionary lodge celebrating the cultural heritage of KwaZulu Natal with culinary delights by them. The Palace reflecting on parts of KwaZulu Natal’s cultural history is the vision of two architects, Kevin MacGary and Peter Amm, who has used his entire collection of Zulu arts and crafts and incorporated into the building and architecture. Ammazulu Palace has 10 luxury suites and a large function hall to seat up to 60 persons with a private lounge and dining area overlooking the gorge for the guests to relax and enjoy themselves as well as even more private lounges in the suites.
