Umngazi River Bungalows & Spa in Port St Johns

The Wild Coast may be South Africa’s most spectacular and peaceful region with its rocky coastline, indigenous forests, secluded coves and many river mouths. All of this is on your doorstep at Umngazi - an award-winning family resort and spa. The thatched bungalows are situated amongst the indigenous gardens which provide the perfect setting for a totally relaxed holiday.

Each of our thatched bungalows is tucked away amongst indigenous flora, on a green hillside providing more views than most eyes can take in. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself perching on the doorstep for hours, simply watching the waves beyond while birds forage and bicker in the bushes around you. Our homely cottages will make you kick your shoes off, undo your top button and put your watch aside. For slightly breathless honeymooners, there are our tranquil, private bungalows perfectly positioned to help you forget all about wedding speeches and guest lists.

Of course you may want to be out most of every day. You could spend the whole time dozing by our riverside pool, or hanging out at Basil’s Bar where darts, snooker and tall stories will make you feel like a regular in no time. In our lofted hillside spa, we’re lucky enough to have dedicated and professional therapists who will gladly massage away your city stress to the soundtrack of nothing but breakers and bird calls. You might find relaxation in other ways; in the gym, on the courts or on a long amble down our pristine beach. For parents in need of a break, our dedicated caregivers are always on hand.

All meals are included with your booking. What’s more, we’re not shy with our portions - bigger is better. Kick off the day with an unhurried river breakfast as you loosely plan out another day filled with the sights and sounds of the hospitable Wild Coast. Later, sample our menu which offers up versatile meat dishes, fish so fresh it melts in your mouth and refreshingly good salads and veggies.

Paradise! Unbeatable value for money. Amazing hospitality, excellent food, very friendly staff. We were pleasantly surprised by the wine list, such a variety at very affordable prices. Who would want to go to Mauritius if you can go to Umngazi?

Breatakingly beautiful! We stayed in the double story honeymoon bungalow.... The view of the river joining the ocean on the morning was amazing... The food is world class... The homemade ice cream has to be my favourite..... So serene and majestic... The perfect place to relax and be one with nature. Excellant activities on and off the resort... One the best places I've been too will definitely be back.

This place is a real hidden gem. Situated on the Wild Coast of Southern Africa, expect world beating views of the Umngazi River and just behind it the Indian Ocean. Which sometimes can include cows on the beach and just looks so cool. Rooms are amazing with jaw dropping views from the comfort of your window , as well as the service but don't expect much technology as this is meant to be a retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life. Put away your phone and take in the surroundings. Or do one of the many activities the hotel had to offer such has hiking, kayaking and fishing. Meals are provided and are absolutely delicious. Just come here to enjoy what this beautiful city has to offer. Probably the best accommodation in this area of South Africa. Just be a bit prepared for the road leading up to the hotel, lots of animals and lots of potholes. But once you're there, you wouldn't want to leave anyway.

Spent a wonderful 3 nights here on a 3 night package. The view and setting are absolutely breathtaking, with a variety of activities to choose from. We found the staff friendly and helpful all round. Food is delicious with good variety at every meal. Even with two days of less than ideal weather we had an absolutely fantastic time. The drive can be tricky if not coming in a 4x4 vehicle, but we made it without incident just by traveling carefully and slowly.

Fantastic holiday destination, probably the best in the country for families

review by Kurt Jeggle, South Africa

"Schnes Resort"

Wer den weiten Weg nicht scheut, wird am Ende der Fahrt mit einer fantastischen Aussicht auf Fluss und Meer und einen Traumstrand verwhnt. Hbsche Bungalows und aufmerksamer Service machen das Resort nicht nur fr Familien attraktiv. Fr unseren Parchengeschmack leider zu viele kleine laute Kinder.
