Large luxury comfy accommodation, where everything works. Off the beaten track where you can only relax. Take a bike or a fishing rod if you want some activity, or some binoculars for amazing birding. Run by a super friendly couple who run a really efficient operation. Look forward to going back to try their self catering upgrades. Would like to...

We really enjoyed our stay . The view s, mountain biking, and the rooms.... perfect. Just the communal kitchen though guess its too small to cater for everyone in the resort. Especially the self catering units.

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...

A wonderful 4 days away from the city. Relaxing and enjoyable. Feel like you in the middle on no where and yet still get to the beach 25 minutes or so away by car. Jaap and Ninke always smiling and available to assist when needed.

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...

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
