    Beautiful hotel situated on the beach with the most amazing views and the best service I have ever had. This is a hotel I would recommend to everyone to visit at least once in their lifetime. Yes, it is terribly expensive but it is classy and very upmarket with style, comfort and the best location in Durban.
    The food is beautifully prepared and tastes really delicious, I would have preferred a bigger helping for the money I was paying but I think that they are in nouvelle cuisine :-) which is great presentation but not plentiful.

    Located on the beach overlooking the magnificant Umhlanga lighthouse this is a fantastic place. They have high tea and a curry buffet but please bear in mind that you have to book well in advance.

    The restaurant is lovely, you can sit outside overlooking the ocean and feel so peaceful as you watch the waves. The food is expensive and not big servings and the hotel is terribly expensive if you want to spend a night but as a day out with your family this is simply the best!!!

    They also have a divine spa which has the most amazing people working there, they are qualified and make you feel like royalty.
    As far as comfort and cleanliness goes there is no doubt that this is NUMBER ONE!!!

    Right on the beach overlooking the beautiful lighthouse, whether you dine on the curry buffet or have the high tea, this is the place to be, lunch on the terrace is awesome, overlooking the beautiful blue ocean.

    High tea with the other Wifey's was a bit disappointing last week...I expected more...sumptuousness. It was just ok...and I have to admit that given my heritage, all that colonial grandeur leaves me cold. Oh! I'm so hard to please I"d hate for my husband to review me!
