Nestled on the crest of La Lucia, Blue Dolphin Ridge provides secure and secluded accommodation for both business and leisure travellers. The facility incorporates five en-suite B&B bedrooms, as well as two independent self-catering executive apartments with breathtaking sea views accommodating up to four and six guests respectively. The superb sea views from the rooms and the communal terrace provide guests with lovely morning light as the sun rises over the Indian Ocean.

Blue Dolphin Ridge is located 3 km from Umhlanga Beach and is directly above the La Lucia Mall. All amenities are within a 100 meter walking distance, and the Durban CBD and the International Convention Centre are a 20-minute drive away.

Great view, spacious. Parking a bit of a problem

Not the cleanest of places.We left on Saturday morning and thought we'd come back to a clean room cz the owner advised that the room would be cleaned while we were out but found it as we left it.The images are somewhat misleading, this establishment has 3 different guest rooms and that should be made clear as I picked to stay here based on the pictures I saw.

I was really disappointed with the apartment. It was nothing like the photo implied. It was dark with windows only on one side, no views, cramped on the bottom of the building. The cleaning service room was next door with the constant noise that you can expect. We had to eat out every night because it is not really equipped for self catering. While we were there we saw much nicer places for less that we paid. So it is not even an argument that you get what you paid for.

What a stunning place with lovely people running it.  Would definitely stay here again.  Well worth it!

We loved the apartment. Our trip to Durban would never have been more exciting if we didn't get to come home to our place. Its cute and homely and the view from the balcony was stunning, could not believe how lucky I was too wake up in the morning and look out and see that magnificent view. Sent pictures too family and friends and they agreed that it was stunning. What I also liked most is that it was central. The next time we visit Durban we will definitely be returning to the Blue Dolphin Ridge to 'our' aparment, which will be soon. Thank you to the owners of this lovely establishment.
