The 154-room Town Lodge Umhlanga, part of the City Lodge Hotel Group, is on track to open in July this year, with General Manager Lizelle Henze at the helm. The property is located on the corner of Umhlanga Ridge Boulevard and Meridian Drive in Umhlanga Rocks, close to its sister properties City Lodge Hotel Umhlanga Ridge and Road Lodge Umhlanga Ridge.
However, the property has its own fresh new identity, drawing new and regular visitors to stay, meet and relax. Property features include two boardrooms (16 and 14 pax), restaurant, swimming pool and a parking lot with capacity for 110 cars. The hotel has four floors and, as with all of City Lodge’s properties, includes rooms that are accessible for those with special needs.
“Town Lodge Umhlanga will offer the delicious full English and Continental breakfast offering and will have a lovely sundowner bar serving draught beer, cocktails and trendy gins,” says Tony Balabanoff, divisional director: operations.
The hotel is set to reap the rewards of tourism and business growth in the area, as it is close to the beach, the Gateway Theatre of Shopping, Durban CBD and is just a 15 minute drive from King Shaka International Airport.
