Umngazi Hotel and Spa – A perfect place to get away from it all

The magical Umngazi Hotel & Spa is a hidden gem on The Wild Coast – South Africa’s most spectacular & yet least touristy region with its rocky coastline, indigenous forests, secluded coves and many river mouths.  Umngazi has all of this natural beauty on its doorstep as well as being an award-winning resort & spa. 

The thatch-roofed accommodation at the resort is perfectly situated amongst the indigenous gardens which provide the ideal setting for a totally relaxed and unforgettable honeymoon.

Umngazi orchestrates unforgettable romantic honeymoons and has earned a reputation as one of South Africa’s premier romantic destinations.  Special Honeymoon Bungalows have been designed to provide privacy and added pampering, while our spectacular Spa provides idyllic romantic treatments for two. The dedicated and experienced therapists use imported and locally made body products to ensure guests leave feeling relaxed, pampered and rejuvenated.
