Sibaya is expansive—in size, appearance, and number of activities—but is worth seeing for its grandiose, Zulu-themed design. The buildings themselves, for example, echo a giant and opulent Zulu kraal (compound/dwelling). Huge bronze statues of Zulu warriors and buffalos at the entrance provide a truly African welcome. Wherever you are at Sibaya, all 119 acres of it, a breathtaking view of the ocean is only a window or a balcony away. As you might expect, there
are plenty of dining options. A 36-room, five-star hotel opened here in 2006. It's quite a way out of town, north of Umhlanga and about halfway between the city center and Ballito.
