South Africas Beach Hotels On Par With Best In The World

South Africa is not only endowed with some of the world's most glorious beaches, but boasts a number of world-class beach hotels too.

Whether you're looking for the ultimate pampering and five-star luxury or a budget stay, you'll find a number of beach hotels that will all comply with at least one requirement: breathtaking beaches on your doorstep.


If it is the warm water of the Indian Ocean and the subtropical climate of KwaZulu-Natal that attracts you, Durban and the nearby Umhlanga Rocks offer a number of South Africa's most sought-after beach hotels.

The Beverly Hills hotel in Umhlanga Rocks is located on the beachfront in one of the country's premier coastal locations, offering uninterrupted sea views from all rooms, personal butlers, and poolside services on the beach, where guests can lounge in the sun.

The Southern Sun Elangeni, located on North Beach in Durban, is one of a number of premier beach hotels offering spectacular views of the city's famous Golden Mile. It is located within close distance of the city centre, entertainment complexes and, of course, miles of golden beaches.


Travellers to other parts of the country should not despair.

The Garden Route, one of South Africa's most popular tourist destinations, not only offers beautiful beaches, forests and mountains, but some of the best spots for whale- and dolphin-watching in the world. The Beacon Island Lifestyle Resort in Plettenberg Bay is a world-famous landmark with breathtaking views of the ocean and surrounding forest and mountains.

Visitors to the Eastern Cape, the friendly province, can pick from a number of beach hotels. Hotels like the Garden Court King's Beach in Port Elizabeth offer the perfect stay for business and leisure travellers, offering boardrooms and meeting facilities within a stone's throw of the popular Hobie Beach.
