Situated close to the main Umhlanga beach, this centre is well worth a visit. An array of exclusive shops, and a great assortment of restaurants. Also to be found in the centre is a large Food Lovers Market. If you are not lucky enough to find street parking there is plenty of paid undercover parking,

My apartment had the most stunning balcony leading out over the pool and the ocean. I was thrilled with the natural light from the floor to ceiling windows and how modern the amenities are. Security and staff on site were friendly and it was so convenient being attached to the mall with a Food Lovers and amazing little coffee shop...

The self catering apartment at the Pearl is exceptional. The 2 bedroom apartment was great. Latest furniture & fittings. The view of the beach & surroundings was absolutely spectacular. Currently undergoing construction, so you need to bear the noise. Not bad though. Weekends is very noisy as there is parties all around, loud music. For a family with kids, this...

I stayed at the The Pearls for a conference in Durban. Transportation to and from the International Conference Center took about 20-25 minutes by taxi or car. Uber is quite easy to use in Umhlanga and only half the cost of taxi. The condo was quite spacious with a huge deck overlooking the sea. There are shops, restaurants, and a...
