Umthunzi Hotel & Conference
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Port Shepstone
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We really enjoyed our weekend at Unthunzini. Our bedrooms were spacious, well appointed, king size bed, percale linen, lovely balcony overlooking the pool and a sea view thrown in for good measure. To get the view you have to brave lots of steps, but at least you are walking off the generous breakfast. Lots of lovely restaurants close by. The hotel's bar and restaurant is closed on the weekend, so B&B only. Obliging staff.

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.
