There are several places to visit in South Africa, varying from Cape Town to Johannesburg to Durban.
Durban is the largest city in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal. After Johannesburg, the Durban Metropolitan Area ranks second among the most populous urban areas in South Africa, virtually with Cape Town.
Below are some of the top choices of hotels to look out for next time you visit the city of Durban.
- Blue Water Hotels
This is a luxurious landmark hotel where golden beaches and the warm Indian Ocean are just a shell’s throw away. You can be assured of a relaxed and beautiful stay as most of the rooms have ocean views and outdoor balconies.
Based on its location on Durban’s Golden Mile, the hub of our city’s entertainment district, there is easy access to Durban’s sporting and corporate facilities. The Suncoast Casino and Entertainment Complex is also a short walk away.
Sporting Activities are great as the hotel is also close to the Kings Park Sporting precinct (including the Moses Mabhida, Kings Park Swimming Pool and Kings Park Rugby Stadium), Kingsmead Cricket stadium, Cyril Geoghegan Cycling Track, and Greyville Race Course.
This is also a great idea for business trips as the ICC, Durban Exhibition Centre and Olive Convention Centre are all within five minutes’ drive of the Blue Waters Hotel.
There is an all year round pool, the Versailles Restaurant, the Blue Dolphin Cocktail Bar and a Pizzeria.
