We had the most amazing weekend at Sandals, Ingrid and Iain made us so welcome, nothing was too much trouble for them, their hospitality was 10 Star. The breakfasts were just superb - the best Eggs Benedict ever !!!!! Rooms were lovely and everything we needed was there for us - a definate for anyone going to Umhlanga
Thank You for a magic weekend !

We want to thank Iain & Ingrid and the entire staff of Sandals for a most enjoyable couple of days at Sandals.
First time for us here and we enjoyed every second of it. The atmosphere in combination with the unique vibes of warmth and friendliness is overwhelming. It´s really a hidden gem. Question is really why writing this, as one would rather have " this place " for oneself.
Thank you ever so much, rgds//Eleonor & Peter

Room Tip: Rooms are all very quiet

This is such a lovely guesthouse.The hosts went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible - and this was greatly appreciated considering we were a bunch of rowdy Irish people. It is small, only four rooms, but our room was extremely cosy with an absolutely huge bed. Beautiful pool area, great 'honesty bar' system (v trusting hosts!) and located 5 minutes walk from the main strip of bars and restaurants. Highly recommended.

Me and my family spent 5 Days at the Sandals Guest house in Umhlanga Rocks over Christmas 2015. We were overwhelmed by the hospitality from the owners Iaian and Ingrid and had a fab time! The rooms were very nice and the location great. Not to mention Ingrid's breakfast specials! Can recommend to anyone.

We had 2 nights at this lovely B/B during a 3 week holiday filled with safaris, gorilla trekking and such. Our host collected us at our lodge and drove us personally the 2.5 hours to our lodging. The rooms were spacious, impeccably clean, comfortable with a lovely attached bath.

The breakfast, as mentioned by others, is over the top. Baked goods, tea and fruit is available through out the day. The location is just a couple of blocks from the beach and the cute village. Our hosts offered a happy hour/social hour which was fun to get to chat with the other guests and share travel stories.

While there were many activities we could have participated in during our stay, we chose to just relax. My friend and I set ourselves up on the front veranda with views of the ocean and just read and rested. If I find myself in Durban again this will be the only place I stay!

Room Tip: There were only 4 rooms, I don't think you could go wrong with any of them.
