Hotel & Conference

Work, Stay & Play... Your Way

   Milkwood Venue

The gorgeous and quaint Milkwood Room is situated poolside and is often used as a Chapel for ceremonies or wedding receptions, but is suitable for a variety of functions as well.

It is a popular choice as the wooden floors, natural light from open glass all around the room, tropical foliage and wooden deck outside with sea views add to the serene ambience that the room echoes.

The room can hold up to 120 people in a cinema style set up. A dance floor can be set up for parties of up to 40 people. Breakaway rooms are available and meals and snacks can be served outside on the terrace. This is the ideal room for private meals, parties, memorials, launches, fashion shows, business events and more.

The next time you need to look for an accredited SAACI conference or function venue near Durban, look no further than Umthunzi Hotel and Conference.  Enjoy doing business in paradise, and experience what warm hospitality is all about!

Wow,wow,wow!! I have travelled all over south africa-and learnt that websites can be deceitful-but not Mthunzi.what you see on the website is exactly what you get. The 2 weeks felt like home away from home. Mthunzi is tranquility+class!!Your staff was friendly, helpful and warm. Thank you soooooo much for taking care of me and the many different groups that were with me. I will truly come back on a personal capacity.
