Cabana Beach resort is my other home! Every year we come back and the hotel just keeps getting better and better. We stayed in a cabana right by the pool with the beautiful view of the ocean and every night we fell asleep to the sound of the ocean. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit. The room is spacious,...

Every time we plan to go down to Umhlanga the first and only place we think of to stay is the Cabana Beach Resort. There's no where better.

We stayed a week at this resort. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. We had a 4 sleeper and it was very comfortable and spacious. We had a big balcony as well. I will recommend cabanas for families because it has a kitchen and dining area. I would definitely stay at this resort again.

This is our 8th holiday at Cabana beach resort. Always a fabulous time for adults and kids - total rewind as everything is in walking distance so no need to drive. Park your car safely undercover. Beachfront and swimming area right infront of resort, and shops or restaurants is a 3 minute walk. We love the Terrace B unit -...
