It would have been better though if there were TVs in rooms, best service from all staff members and delicious meals,captivating environment indeed.Even though I had missed it visiting the cellar in the basement because no one informed us about it during our stay,hopefully, I will get to see it on my next trip.

From the time that we arrived in this exquisite coastal resort, to the leaving, we were treated in the true friendly, hospitable and professional manner renowned with the Pondoland People. Having travelled extensively throughout the old Transkei, part of my "bucket list" was a visit to Umngazi River Bungallows. The 8 Days spent was unbelievable so much so, that I will be spending a special birthday there with my Family and to have my wife say "it was the best holiday I have ever have had in South Africa" was the cherry on the top. The only downfall was the surplus amount of excellent food. This reminded us of being on a Cruise Liner where 5 meals were served per day. Highly recommended but just not when I am celebrating my weeks birthday,

Stayed here as part of our tour of the wild coast in January 2018. The resort is in a beautiful location and well maintained. Everyone we meet speaks highly of this place, it is the jewel of the wild coast.

Stayed here for 1 week in January 2018. Had an amazing time, the beaches are clean and unspoilt. The staff are very accomodating. We went with our 4 year old and there was plenty for him to do. The hikes are amazing. Rooms are clean, food is amazing. Will definitley return.
