    This 3-star paradise hotel is your gateway to golden beaches, lush surroundings and the exhilaration of holidaying in an idyllic part of South Africa. If you want stunning views overlooking the KwaZulu-Natal coast, look no further than Protea Hotel Durban Umhlanga. Centrally located in the heart of uMhlanga Rocks, the hotel is 18 km from King Shaka International Airport and conveniently situated minutes from the protected beach and 10 minutes from Durban. The hotel offers friendly service, comfortable accommodations, along with a relaxing rooftop sun deck and plunge pool.

Enjoy a choice between 120 Semi self-catering facilities which include a microwave, fridge, cutlery, crockery and tea/coffee-making facilities.
