Nestled in the village of Umdloti near Durban, only a few metres from a lovely swimming beach, this delightful homestead offers a warm welcome and personal hospitality alongside the comfort and sophistication of a 4-star hotel. Each of its ten rooms is unique, with a refined design and sea view.
Durban, a former home of Mahatma Gandhi, who nurtured his passive-resistance philosophy here, has a strong Indian and colonial influence that can be experienced in the culture, cuisine and architecture and is unique in Africa.
Just north of the city is Umdloti, an ideal place to unwind and enjoy the sunshine, beaches, rock pools and sea. There are a number of activities for the more energetic - the inshore reefs provide plentiful excitement for anglers, (surf, rock and ski boat) and for divers and water sport enthusiasts. Whales and dolphins are frequently seen in season, from the beach, the shoreline or even your sea view bedroom.
One of the world largest aquarium, the uShaka Marine World, is well worth a visit, with many attractions, bars, restaurants, swimming pools.
