“Sad News”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

Phefumula Beach Resort has closed its doors due to bankruptcy.It opened in 2010 and lasted for about one and a half years.It was such a lovely place idealy situated over looking the sea.Excellent food,service and very pleasant staff.Lovely venue for a day or weekend.It has been lying empty for months they are trying to auction it off.Hope somebody reopens it as it used to be.


Stayed December 2011, traveled solo
