“There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved” – George Sand

If COVID has taught us anything, it is to truly value and appreciate our loved ones and never take anything for granted.

Let’s face it, we all love to feel valued and appreciated and what better way to celebrate your special love with a romantic getaway to Umngazi Hotel & Spa on the ruggedly and wildly romantic Wild Coast?

What makes Umngazi Hotel & Spa a truly romantic destination

  1. Umngazi offers two out-of-season packages for the romantics, honeymooners, babymooners and anniversary celebrators. The 3-or-5 day Amava or Uthando packages are perfect for couples looking to celebrate their “us” and indulge in quality time to reconnect.
  2. Private dining in either the intimate Riverside Gazebo or chic Green Door Cellar where you can indulge and delight your sense of taste, smell and sight.
  3. The beautiful Umngazi Spa offers a wide variety of treatments and a setting that is so unique, romantic and with views that will take your breath away. Enjoy a couple’s spa treatment or a romantic spa bath watching the sun set while sipping on a deliciously chilled bottle of bubbles.
  4. A beautiful stretch of beach on the Wild Coast for you to appreciate together while watching the sunset (or rise), sipping on sundowners or enjoying the sounds of the ocean with a picnic lunch.
  5. Nothing makes one feel more alive or in love than fresh air, nature and exercise. You will certainly be spoilt for choice with a variety of outdoor activities to enjoy together including walks, hikes, a game of tennis, trail running, mountain biking routes (bring your own bikes), kayaking, SUPing, lazing around the pool or enjoying an afternoon river cruise to hopefully spot the resident, majestic Fish Eagle
  6. Beautiful and comfortably furnished accommodation with a variety of different room types to choose from. Garden, River, Sea View rooms as well as the Emlonyeni, Honeymoon and Ntabeni suites that all have access to the Emlonyeni Private Lounge and Pool deck.
  7. An incredible award-winning wine list for you to experience and explore.
  8. The most magnificent and picturesque sunsets that will have you falling in love every day.
  9. The warmth and hospitality of the beautiful Pondo people.
  10. Umngazi is a place where time stands still, where you can truly relax, disconnect from reality and completely enjoy the time you have together.
