We enjoyed our stay at Wellvale Private River Resort. We camped and found the facilities to be excellent. It is situated in a lovely scenic location, we saw a wide variety of birds as well. I would recommend this little gem to anyone who needs to stay a few nights in the Kwadukuza area.

Highly recommended destination if you want to get away from the daily city rush to charge your batteries. Food is great, acommodation is really nice and they will definitely... More

What a nice place to celebrate our birthdays and anniversary month. This place was amazing. Peaceful and so relaxing. Rooms were clean, loved the outdoor shower. Communal kitchen had everything you need. Lovely breakfast in the garden. A beautiful set up. Will be going back there soon.

My partner and I were looking for a quiet secluded vacation for our anniversary and we had a wonderful time at Wellvale Resort! It is so tranquil, and the owners were very kind and friendly... we felt as though we were visiting friends for the weekend. They made sure to consider all our needs and accommodate us. We highly recommend... More

The place was completely clean. The service and smile was great. Very nice place to completely disconnect from the busy city world. They must just put wine and champagne glasses in the kitchen and consider a little more activities.

The place is beautiful, lovely sceneries, clean spacious rooms with outside shower which was my personal favourite. There's not much to do but if you're looking for a quite, tranquil time away from everything then this is the place. One thing I'd suggest the owners should add to make the stay more pleasant is a bar fridge in the rooms... More

Very warm hosts. Beautiful place to relax and admire the scenery and quiet. Be prepared to use a communal kitchen and some 12kms of dirt road. The rooms are very comfortable and neat. Recommend this for a quiet relaxed one.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wellvale Resort, a top class eco-tourism hideaway, is bordered by the Mvoti River and boasts spectacular views of the Nsikeni Mountain. Situated in the popular Dolphin Coast region, Wellvale is only a short drive from Durban's King Shaka International Airport and perfectly located for day trips to some of South Africa's finest beaches. Accommodation is provided in luxury Lodges along the river with outdoor showers and king-sized beds, or in our family room which can sleep four people comfortably. We also have three shaded campsites and self-catering facilities for the more adventurous. Meals are served on our terrace where you can enjoy the bird song of the many different species resident at Wellvale while taking in the view of the mountains. After dinner you can relax in our fully-stocked, cosy bar, or pull up a chair beside the outdoor pit fire and enjoy a night-cap. As supporters of eco-friendly tourism we run our resort with the environment and local community in mind. You are welcome to visit some of the projects that we facilitate in the area, including an after schools club for local children and a soccer training initiative. Wellvale River Resort is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed retreat, while still being well-placed to explore the beautiful Dolphin Coast. ... more   less
