About The Estuary Hotel and Spa

Welcome to The Estuary Hotel and Spa, located in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Coast just a few km short of Port Edward. The Estuary Hotel and Spa was originally built in 1941 as a Manor House in the Cape-Dutch style for a wealthy family. It has been cautiously transformed into a beautiful and private Hotel, Restaurant and conference center. Its genuine design and harmony of proportions, immediately reflects the work of a master builder. We offer a total of 44 large air-conditioned, en-suite rooms with private balconies with exclusive honeymoon suites. Established in 1996, the Fish Eagle Restaurant rapidly became one of the top five dining venues on the South Coast. Whether for a light snack or a candlelight dinner for two or more, we promise to tantalize the taste buds with unsurpassed cuisine and a well-stocked cellar of complementing wines. We offer fully air-conditioned conference facilities for up to 300 delegates. While the beautiful natural environment lends itself to the most amazing team-building and leisure activities with as many as seven stunning golf courses in the immediate area. Let us take the stress out of organizing your next conference. We have established a fully integrated Wellness and Beauty Spa, managed by highly awarded, professional therapists. This well-appointed, tranquil haven offers Aromatherapy massages, body therapies, unisex manicures and pedicures and facial treatments.

Scuba diving, surfing, angling, mountain biking, golf and The Wild Coast Sun Casino are all a short drive away!
