Beverly Hills Hotel

54 Lighthouse Rd., Umhlanga, KwaZulu Natal, 4319, South Africa

In a high-rise building right on the beach, this upscale hotel is popular with both vacationers and businesspeople and has a longstanding reputation for gracious hospitality. The service is excellent and facilities, such as The Sugar Club restaurant, are superb. However, if you're accustomed to lolling about in a bathing suit, you may find this hotel too formal. The public lounge, festooned with huge floral arrangements and yards of gathered drapes, serves a full silver-service tea in the afternoon, and a pianist plays in the evening. Guest rooms are fairly small, but all have terrific sea views, particularly those on the upper floors. Suites are more spacious and villas have an open beachlike feel and private plunge pool.

PROS

  • unbeatable sea views
  • hotel has its own demarcated piece of beach with lounge chairs

CONS
