The holiday was magnificent only thing kids should not be in the bar post 6pm. Lunches were fab, salads great but dinnertime could be more “imaginative “ Up the main courses!
Would also suggest two big “self serve” tables with similar on both to stop crowding

Dear Umngazi Guest,

Thank you for your wonderful review it was great to read how much you had enjoyed your holiday with us. We agree with the no children in the bar policy after 6pm as per same request by management, unfortunately not all parents assist us with this practice. Your points about the food are noted, thank you for your feedback here.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Umngazi in the not to distant future.

Kind regards,

Graham

Seven days of bliss: friendly, helpful staff; beautiful accommodation (well designed and comfortable); delicious meals, lovely wine list; magical landscapes all around (hills, river, ocean); a relaxing, wonderful spa. We loved every second of it.

we enjoyed an awesome 5 day getaway at the URB long walks on the endless beaches and relaxing moments in many beautiful little garden hideaways.The meals are varied and delicious and the service excellent.If you are a mountainbiker take the bike along if you are a fisherman you'll already know all about this spot.Do remember a little day pack for your beach walks,Do take the sunset cruise and enjoy the Fish Eagles fly over.

Room Tip: If you wont to escape the festivities around the pool area opt for the chalets at the far end of the resort
