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 Hotel & Spa orchestrates unforgettable romantic honeymoons and has earned a reputation as one of South Africa’s premier romantic destinations. Special Honeymoon suites have been designed to provide privacy and added pampering, while our spectacular Spa provides idyllic romantic treatments for two. Honeymooners booked into one of the suites will enjoy exclusive access to the Emlonyeni lounge and pool deck, beautifully situated near the river mouth.
During their out of season periods, Umngazi are able to create intimate and memorable weddings for up to 50 people. The Bride and Groom can either exchange vows on the riverfront with panoramic views of the surrounding maintains, Xhosa huts and setting sun or choose to say “I do” on a stretch of unspoiled eye-catching coastline unique to South Africa.
Weekly fly-in packages are available Friday to Friday from Virginia Airport in Durban where you fly at 500 feet above sea level along the beautiful coastline – a wonderful way to start your honeymoon. Alternatively, SAA Airlink offers flights from Cape Town and Johannesburg to Mthatha airport. Airport transfers or car hire facilities are available to transport you the 90kms to Umngazi Hotel & Spa.
