We used this as a base as we were going on a three day tour. They very kindly kept our large bag for us , so we could take a small bag only for our trip. Breakfast was good , close to the beach and restaurants. Would come back again

Dianne and Geoff you have a winning combination great service and beautiful accommodation. From the time we arrived we were treated so well until the day we left. Even the fact that our car was washed before we left was just an added bonus.Thank you very much.

We really had an awesome stay at the Flamingo Lodge. It spacious, clean and the staff are wonderful. The wifi can be iffy at times, but the family room is spaciuous enough to comfortably sleep 4. It's only 15min from the airport, close to the beach, great viby restaurants and the Gateway shopping mall. I would definitely recommend them for...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Flamingo Lodge is a 4 Star establishment situated in the heart of Umhlanga Rocks and is closest of all the Guest Lodges (200 Meters) to the main "Blue Flag" bathing beach and the Beach Front Promenade. The Promenade is ideal for those people who like to walk or jog and is about 4 kilometers long, with spectacular scenery, open air restaurants and the occasional sighting of dolphins or whales. Umhlanga Rocks is situated some 10 minutes from the new King Shaka International Airport, and just 12 kilometers north of downtown Durban. Very close to the famous Gateway Shopping Centre and surrounded by world class Golf Clubs. Park your vehicle in our safe car park and you are within a 2 minute walk to the beaches and to the various first class restaurants and shopping facilities that the Village has to offer. Each of the eight tastefully decorated bedrooms all has their own en suite bathrooms/showers, as well as their own private patios. All rooms are equipped with Satellite Television, Safes, Tea/Coffee making facilities and individually controlled Air-Cons. and Fans. One of the rooms is a self catering apartment consisting of a double room with ensuite bathroom (with a bath and a separate shower) a separate television lounge which has a sleeper couch, kitchenette and dining area. The whole Lodge is an "Internet Hot Spot" so people with their own wireless computers enjoy free internet facilities. The Lodge provides for its guests an Honesty Bar as well as an Internet Cafe, where guests can down load their digital pictures on to Disc. A Full English Breakfast is served outside on our balcony, with great views of the sea. We have an arrangement where a few Village restaurants offer a discount to our guests. We have several world class golf resorts within a 10 kilometer drive. Dolphin viewing, Deep-Sea Diving and Fishing Safaris all start from "Grannies Pool" which is just in front of us on the beach. The Moses Mobhida Football stadium is just 10 kms down the road The Drakensberg Mountains with its many resorts are about a 2 hour drive from Durban as are the many Game Parks that surround the St Lucia Wetlands. We can organize all your tourist requirements or business needs through our Reception where the staff will do what they can to make your stay a memorable one. ... more   less
