Umngazi Hotel & Spa Accommodation Options

Posted on: April 4, 2022, in Latest News

Your choices of accommodation are:

Umngazi Hotel & Spa, a unique full-board beach resort located on the Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape, South Africa is the perfect escape to relax, reconnect and refresh. Accommodation at Umngazi offers holidaymakers a relaxing refuge from the hustle and bustle of real life.

The hotel boasts 68 thatched units, all including en-suite bathrooms with outdoor showers, electronic safes, a hairdryer, fridge, laundry service, tea and coffee station and an outdoor patio with table and chairs. All rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished, meeting all 5 needs of a beach holiday destination.

It is important to note that Umngazi Hotel and Spa is situated on a hillside and spread across the resort. This means that there is a fair amount of walking uphill or a fair distance to get to your room. Due to this, we are unfortunately not wheelchair friendly and only offer 1 room that can accommodate a wheelchair guest comfortably.

The rooms are separated into different categories across the hotel. Below, we chat about each accommodation option and what sets them apart from the others. 

Garden Rooms: 

Our garden rooms offer Double or Family Rooms and are near the main hotel facilities. They are set amid our beautiful lawns and manicured indigenous gardens, they are fantastic for families as selected rooms offer inter-leading rooms. 

Our Garden Rooms feature either two single beds or a large king-sized bed, an en-suite bathroom with a gorgeous outside shower and a patio. There are 12 garden units available at the resort.

River Rooms:

Our River Rooms are Double, Twin or Family rooms that offer spectacular views of the Umgazi River. These rooms are peaceful and relaxing with the sounds of the river and birdlife so near. There are 17 river-facing units at the resort. Bliss!

Our River Rooms feature two single beds or a large king-sized bed with en-suite bathrooms and an outside shower. We have inter-leading room options available for those with kids, this is another fantastic family room option. 

Sea Rooms:

Another great option for families is our Sea Rooms. These rooms have prime locations offering views of the sea whilst maintaining close proximity to the hotel facilities. Like our other family rooms, they also offer inter-leading rooms and an outside shower. These rooms are known for their spectacular views and are a crowd favourite. There are 34 sea-facing units split into 3 different categories – upper, middle and lower bank.
