We have stayed at this amazing resort for the last 15 years & will keep coming back. On our recent trip we needed to find a venue for some 40 family members to have a meeting & over Easter weekend so it was pretty impossible to find a suitable space. The resort were incredibly helpful & not only opened up...

Excellent family holiday resort. Great service and friendly staff. Daily entertainment programmes for adults and kids. Seperate pools for families and over 18s on the resort grounds. Right on the main beach with a good choice of restaurants, shops and entertainment available in Umhlanga Village and Gateway mall. We were there over the Easter weekend and it was very busy....

We can't wait to get back here as often as possible. Our stay at the very private Studios at the adult pool makes one feel like you have your own lawn and pool as part of your room. The kitchen is well appointed and allows for a flexible choice of stay in or eat out throughout your stay

a highly recommended resort in a great location, however it will be interesting to see how the vibe and holiday atmosphere will change as Umhlanga unfolds as the Sandton of the North coast.....as is rapidly taking place.

I Love this Resort. We have been visiting annually for two weeks in March for about thirty years. Best Resort I have ever visited. It is Holy Time in our family. Nothing interferes with this holiday. I can highly recommend.

The Umhlanga Cabanas offers a very upmarket holiday for a fair price. It is clean, well maintained and the staff is friendly and helpful. Umhlanga is busy upgrading the town and the Pearls next door is giving the whole area a facelift. I will be buying more timeshare at the Cabanas.

Love the place, love the view and love the staff! Such a warm and friendly stay that we are always sad to leave! Can't wait to be back soon when our little boy is able to walk and we can participate in the many family activities available to us.

The week at Cabana Beach felt like a proper holiday. Excellent location, thanks to thr GM, Ian and all the staff for professional always available service. A place to be recommended to local and overseas friends without reservations. Near to an excellent international airport and within easy waking distance of many restaurants and shops.
