"Schšnes Resort"

"Wer den weiten Weg nicht scheut, wird am Ende der Fahrt mit einer fantastischen Aussicht auf Fluss und Meer und einen Traumstrand verwšhnt. HŸbsche Bungalows und aufmerksamer Service machen das Resort nicht nur fŸr Familien attraktiv. FŸr unseren PŠarchengeschmack leider zu viele kleine laute Kinder..."

"Our stay was no short of absolutely perfect! The setting, service, staff and ambiance was amazing. We are so hoping to make it back there one day. "

"This was an incredibly lovely place. It was even better than in the pictures. A view that was just beautiful and breath taking. The place was run really well. The food was excellent. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. I enjoyed the sport facility's the place had to offer such as fishing, canoeing, and we even took a nice hike. The only thing I must mention that put a real damper on our stay was the staff. There were four receptionists and all of them were really unfriendly and unpleasant. They were not helpful or informative about anything. I feel that it is important having people or staff that is mainly helpful and friendly when running a business. Especially one such as the holiday industry. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay. I would recommend it to anyone. "


"Great View "

(Netherlands) Corrie | 10 August 2017

"When you reach the port a little paradise is in front of you. Great view from (our) bungalow over the river and the sea. Saturday fish buffet is super including staff performance.

It's not part of Umngazi but something to keep in mind. The last 11,5 km before paradise needs maintenance. "


"Amazing Stay"

"Fantastic Breakaway"

"The venue is nice as well as the area. The service is always tops and the food is lovely. Our stay was a great value for money. I’ve been to Umngazi River Bungalows before and I will definitely be back."


"The most amazing holiday we've had in SA"

(South Africa) Elaine | 30 December 2015

"The websites don't do Umngazi justice. This is the most amazing hotel set between the river and beach. The facilities are great and there is lots to do (daily guided hikes, fishing, sunset river cruise, gym facilities etc. and there are nanny services) or you can relax by the pool, beach or at the s..."

"The websites don't do Umngazi justice. This is the most amazing hotel set between the river and beach. The facilities are great and there is lots to do (daily guided hikes, fishing, sunset river cruise, gym facilities etc. and there are nanny services) or you can relax by the pool, beach or at the spa. The spa is the most incredible spa with very nice views of the sea. For accommodation be sure to book a sea view room. The prices are actually really worthwhile considering they include 3 amazing meals a day and tea time snacks. We'll definitely be back! "

"Really good time"

(South Africa) Bowles | 16 March 2015

"This place has a great setting and the staff are very accommodating. What an excellent time we had. I can suggest that perhaps the gym equipment be serviced but otherwise I really enjoyed the stay."

"If you wanting to treat yourself but especially your wife to a wonderful relaxed and chilled weekend, Umngazi is the place you have to head off too!
Firstly, you are given a warm welcome at the gate where they request your name and type of booking and then you drive to reception who has obviously been alerted that you have come through the gate, as at reception, they have all your particulars and necessary paper work to be signed ready. No time wasted, you're given your keys and assistance from a porter and voila, you're in your room.
The rooms are very spacious, comfortable and light and a bathroom with a bath and a shower which is situated outside but still connected to the bathroom. Showering and looking out at the ocean in the day and stars in the evening is an experience you have to have.
The setting at Umngazi is really tranquil and the swimming pool, pub and deck areas are well situated so that you can enjoy their awesome meals and cold refreshments whilst looking out across the river.
There are wonderful organised walks with guides and an evening boat cruise up the river, which is a must. We were lucky to see the local Fish Eagle, called by our guide/skipper, swoop down and snatch a sardine thrown in the river by the skipper. An amazing experience!
The evenings around the pub area are fun and new friends are made. Steve, the pub and entertainment manager, held a quiz of twenty questions where the winning team are lucky enough to win a great bottle of wine. Good laughs and some very low scores were the order of the day. I did get two answers correct!
Besides being a magnificent place to visit, the staff, rooms, food and general service all round is "out of the top draw!"
All I can say is on behalf of my wife and myself thank Umngazi and your staff for a great getaway weekend as this was definitely money well spent! Do it, go to Umngazi!

"Fantastic off-grid relaxation"

(South Africa) Mr Slabbert | 5 June 2013

"This is an excellent getaway destination on the most beautiful coastline in South Africa. The staff are all attentive and friendly by nature. The spa is top-class. The extensive grounds and amenities are maintained in an immaculate condition. Definitely good value for your money."


"A great place to stay for longer than 1 day"

"A truly wonderful place where the river meets the sea. When we got to the resort we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms, especially the outside shower, were great. The main areas (the lounge, pool and restaurant) were wonderfully comfortable. As all meals, morning and afternoon tea were included, we thought that this was wonderful value. We would have loved to stay for a few days more and take part in all the activities on offer."
