Your Hotels —
Located adjacent to the fabulous V&A Waterfront, this hotel occupies an historic 19th century building overlooking Table Bay and the city's iconic landmark, Table Mountain.
Environmentally-friendly, the hotel's 191 guest rooms all feature beautiful recycled floors and furniture.
Guests are treated to a bird’s-eye view of the restored harbour, secure parking and easy access to the waterfront’s many attractions. It is situated near the main routes to beaches, mountain walks and city hotspots.
On-site dining is offered at Stonebreakers Restaurant and other amenities include the full-service Relax Spa and a well-equipped fitness centre.
Admire fantastic views of the River Buffalo and immerse yourself in the history ofthe battlefields at Rorke’s Drift Hotel. Gentle walks or hikes in the natural bush surroundings will relax and rejuvenate you after the city.
The wagon drift that gives the area its name is within the hotel's grounds, and of course there is the Battlefield, just 5 minutes or a short walk away, where 11 Victoria Crosses were awarded.
The dramatic field of Isandlwana that was fought on the same day is just a 15 minute drive, and the poignant memorial at Fugitive’s Drift, 10 minutes downstream.
The soaring thatched roof design takes inspiration from traditional Zulu architecture and encloses spacious bar, lounge and dining areas, all with huge windows showing the views.
Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge is situated on the western boundary in the first private concession within Africa’s oldest proclaimed Game Reserve in Hluhluwe.
Set in a 96 000 hectare park Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge enables guests to enjoy 4 star luxury at a private lodge for the first time within the park, offering spectacular scenery and excellent safari opportunities within the heart of Big 5 territory.
The rooms have been carefully positioned high up on a ridge to take full advantage of the spectacular views over the hills and valleys of Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park while at the same time giving each room maximum privacy. This has resulted in some of the rooms being quite a distance from the central lodge facility with some of them being a 200 metre walk to the main lodge area. Guests are advised to pack comfortable flat shoes for walking along the paths.
Guests wanting to indulge themselves can make use of our beautiful spa facilities. A full range of spa and beauty therapies are offered by a team of dedicated professionals.
Situated on the spectacular Durban beachfront, Southern Sun Elangeni & Maharani is undoubtedly the brightest star on the Golden Mile. The city’s finest beaches lie metres away, from the long boardwalk and many other local attractions.
The 734 rooms are beautifully furnished in a modern style, and are equipped with amenities such as air-conditioning, tea and coffee making facilities, electronic safe, 24-hour room service and complimentary WiFi.
Services and facilities include three heated swimming pools, the Mangwanani Boutique spa and eleven restaurants and bars.
