“Fun for everyone”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

We have been to the Gateway shopping mall countless times when on holiday in Umhlanga every year.

Like other reviews mentioned, this mall offers entertainment for young and old. We always watch a movie at Gateway on a rainy day and love to play bowling and when our two teenage boys are with us, I am outnumbered by the three men in my life and the competition usually get fierce!:)

The high end designer shops is pure bliss! I absolutely love the Swarovski shop with it's wide variety crystal items.

You can rest your tired feet (and purse) in one of the many restaurants.

Highly recommended for a fun filled day!

A lovely and huge shopping and entertainment complex - thats what Gateway is. You can shop till you drop and then choose between loads of lovely restaurants to wine and dine. You can easily spend a day here!

“An above average shopping Mall”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

We have visited this mall frequently over the years and it provides you with an above average shopping experience. We would not choose it as our #1 choice Mall in the Durban area, which in our opinion is won hands down by the Pavilion. Gateway does has one advantage and that is its outdoor entertainment area - very innovativen

“Always a pleasant experience at Gateway”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

I travel to Umhlanga Durban every 2 weeks, and every visit I spend time at Gateway. I have not once had a bad experience there. It is always clean, and there are so many activities to keep children and adults alike entertained. There are plenty of restaurants and take-away fast food places, and coffee shops to suit every palate. There are also great specials on a regular basis which makes the trip worthwhile every time. I would definitely recommend this shopping to all shop-a-holics.
