“Many Happy Returns”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

Our visit to Umthunzi was an absolute pleasure. The lovely, tastefully furnished rooms with wonderful sea views outdid our expectations. We enjoyed countless happy hours around the pool with stunning ocean views. A great place for evening sundowners. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the management team treated us like we were family.We will definitely be back very soon.

Room Tip: If possible ask for a sea facing room. The sunrises are sublime and its always great to get an idea...

About 10 min walk from the beach. We had a great view. Very comfortable rooms. We only stayed a few nights but we enjoyed our time at Umthunzi!

The rooms are lovely with really big beds and very good, comfortable mattresses. The breakfast that was served was also top quality and a wide variety to choose from. Lovely view over the ocean from the pool area.
