The staff were very helpful in arranging things for me beforehand. However, I saw three cockroaches while I was there. One on the couch, one in the bathroom and another by the bar fridge. A cockroach infestation doesn't help with a good nights sleep. Also not something you would expect in a quality hotel. I specifically chose this hotel because... More

I have stayed here about 4 times now, the service is friendly, the rooms are spotless, a very comfortable room and I always enjoy the balcony. The mini bar always has a nice selection if you feel you want to indulge, the little extra complimentry items they give you is a nice touch. One comment though the breakfast team dont... More

Recent additions and renovations done, luxurious and beautiful - tastefully done. Breakfast offers a wide selection of continental and hot food, delicious. Hosts and staff friendly and helpful. No assistance after hours however. Nice view from balcony.

Highly recommend place at posh and quiet part of Durban. We (along with my 3 year old toddler) stayed at self catering apartment with Ushaka, and we enjoyed every bit of our stay. This was a 2 bedroom apartment (one with double bed and other one with two single beds), well maintained kitchen with lots of utensils and cutlery. Apartment... More

It is always a battle to find quality pet friendly accommodation in South Africa but uShaka have got it right. They are a top-end luxury establishment, and they just charge extra for the dogs. Only fair. Great place. Great position - walking distance to all the Umhlanga restaurants and to the beach. Great rooms leading onto lovely big tropical garden... More

I got married in Durban in August 2014. As part of the wedding planning I tried to find the ideal accommodation for my elderly parents and uncle. After a lengthy search and many discussions, I booked specific rooms at uShaka 18 months in advance of our trip. I also called to confirm the booking and e-mailed some months later to... More
