Brilliant venue for weddings and conferences. Ryan and his team are awesome.

Love this place. When you’re eating, you get to face the ocean and the view is just breath-taking. The food is delicious. The breakfast menu has something for everyone. Supper is usually a three course meal and the staff is very attentive. The rooms, oh the rooms. They are spacious and so comfortable. There's also a bar, if it wasn't beautiful enough. If it was up to me, I would stay at this hotel every time I went to Port Shepstone.

I always highly recommend Umthunzi Hotel as the perfect venue for accommodation and events. On our wedding day, we felt so special and very pleased with your level of service and highly competent staff. Our guests were very impressed and still talking about the wedding set-up even today.
