Once arriving at the resort, it is very comfortable, beautiful and relaxing. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. Just be warned there is NO cell phone signal and you have no communication unless on the resort's WiFi with the outside world. The long dirt road to the resort is also not the nicest unless you have a vehicle suitable for...

What a pleasurable, relaxing weekend away!1 Jaap and Nienke were such amazing hosts. From patiently directing us in to the resort, to ensuring we were comfortable and well provided for. The room was lovely and spacious and the outside shower was private, modern but novel at the same time. We loved the family atmosphere that was present from the time...

Thank you to the Management at Wellvale for a wonderful relaxed stay where the rooms were clean and comfortable with well prepared home style meals. The setting was amazing along the river with an abundance of bird life. We highly recommend Wellvale for that relaxed weekend away.

We loved our stay here. The rondavels are beautiful with the sunken baths and outdoor shower. The grounds are tranquil and beautifully maintained. All we could hear were the birds it was a perfect escape from our busy lives. The owners were welcoming friendly and helpful. We will be coming back as soon as we can.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wellvale Resort, a top class eco-tourism hideaway, is bordered by the Mvoti River and boasts spectacular views of the Nsikeni Mountain. Situated in the popular Dolphin Coast region, Wellvale is only a short drive from Durban's King Shaka International Airport and perfectly located for day trips to some of South Africa's finest beaches. Accommodation is provided in luxury Lodges along the river with outdoor showers and king-sized beds, or in our family room which can sleep four people comfortably. We also have three shaded campsites and self-catering facilities for the more adventurous. Meals are served on our terrace where you can enjoy the bird song of the many different species resident at Wellvale while taking in the view of the mountains. After dinner you can relax in our fully-stocked, cosy bar, or pull up a chair beside the outdoor pit fire and enjoy a night-cap. As supporters of eco-friendly tourism we run our resort with the environment and local community in mind. You are welcome to visit some of the projects that we facilitate in the area, including an after schools club for local children and a soccer training initiative. Wellvale River Resort is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed retreat, while still being well-placed to explore the beautiful Dolphin Coast. ... more   less
