Nombuso was absolutely amazing. She communicated with us from the very first day we made our booking, and further treated us very well during our stay. The food was perfect. My family and I absolutely loved the location and our stay at the resort. I definitely recommend the place.

excellent very private, clean and comfortable resort with exclusive access to beach and fishing spots. Good food and beverages, catering for all tastes including Halaal and no alcohol. Also caters for seminars, workshops, weddings and events. Owner managed and operated a bonus. staff very professional, pleasant and helpful. Lodges and rooms very neat, sea views, well equipped - - smart tv, mini fridge, tea, coffee, aircon. Would highly recommend to local and international visitors and holiday makers seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of city life in a very safe, well maintained environment. 30-40 minutes from Durban city centre. Nombusa, Mohamed and Winnie take very good care of guests.

Absolutely loved my stay at this hidden resort. From fantastic sea views to such delicious Halaal cuisine, what more could one ask for!! Wooden cabins with a modern twist - you gotta love it. Had the pleasure of dealing with the most helpful and friendly hostess, Nombusa, who goes the extra mile for everyone! Wish I could take the Chef away.....you have to try the mutton curry WOW!!! Will definitely be back!!
