I wish to take this opportunity and share with you my gratitude for sterling service during my first visit at Umthunzi. Special appreciation to the colleagues at the kitchen and Ms Chamane at the reception for educating me about surrounding areas as someone who enjoys jogging. I have no doubt that I will visit your property again in future.
