About Shonalanga Holiday Resort

Shonalanga Holiday Resort is surrounded by a rain forest, a wilderness area and the warm Indian Ocean. We offer beautiful one- and two-bedroom accommodation options in this spectacular area. Many tourist and fishermen have chosen Shonalanga for more than 25 years as their escape to paradise.

Each apartment consists of two bedrooms, a lounge and dining room, a bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen. All of our apartments are serviced daily by our staff members and we provide under-cover parking a laundry service, M-Net and braai facilities. Our six sleeper units offer one double bed, two single beds and one sleeper couch.

Awake to the stirring call of birdsong and celebrate first light through the Umfolozi Game Reserve or the Hluhluwe Game Reserve. End a busy day by relaxing in our private pool while enjoying the serenity of a peaceful nightfall over the African bush, or spend the day fishing in Lake St Lucia or swimming with the tropical fish of the Indian Ocean.

I would definitely return.
