Business Update

Award-winning Pumula Beach Hotel in Durban is a great place to unwind, recharge and then hit the conference room running (or not).

Award-winning Pumula Beach Hotel offers the perfect mix of work and play facilities, and a dedicated staff complement to cater to your every need. You’ll leave wanting more!


Kwazulu-natal is South Africa’s lushest region, where winter doesn’t exist. And it is here, situated 100km south of Durban, where Pumula Beach Hotel welcomes guests to its sandy beaches and crystal-clear pools. With its rooms adorned with paintings of delicate seashells and colour tones that match that of the Indian Ocean nearby, the hotel seems to be the very home of champagne wishes and caviar dreams.


Pumula is unique in its location, situated right on one of the few select beaches in the country that enjoy Blue Flag status. Between all the on-site facilities and those right on Pumula’s doorstep, guests are indeed spoilt for choice. Never-ending golden beaches, protected bathing, rock pools, surfing, excellent fishing opportunit­ies, the annual sardine run, and dolphin or whale watching to name a few. Throw in the fact that South Africa’s playground, the vibrant city of Durban, is not too far away – accessibil­ity and entertainm­ent to counter the utter peace and tranquilit­y, should you need it – are two more major drawcards.


For decades, Pumula Beach Hotel has been the destinatio­n of choice for families, friends and conference guests, who love nothing more than to soak up the breathtaki­ng surroundin­gs of KZN’S coastline. Many families return year after year to create more happy memories as the kids grow up.

As a family-owned hotel, family is important to Pumula. The staff take great pride in being part of each family’s history and do everything in their power to ensure their memories are happy ones. Even the staff find it hard to leave, with the longest member of staff recently acquiring their 40-year Service Award.


The personal attention given to the guests, their dedication to service excellence and exceptiona­lly high standards have led to Pumula Beach Hotel winning accolade after accolade, and the respect of many. Including taking home the Lilizela Award for the best three-star Family Hotel Nationally (for service excellence). They have also been awarded Best Family Hotel in South Africa many times. “Good News! Some people still strive for excellence,” says Consumer Watch radio and media personalit­y, Wendy Knowler, commenting on Pumula’s staff.


Pumula Beach Hotel has recently expanded to a total of 66 hotel rooms and two conference venues.

Conference facilities include the Intshambil­i and Amawele rooms, with room for up to 100 and 120 delegates respective­ly. The rooms are fully air-conditione­d, with fixed screens. The following equipment is available: overhead projectors, data projector, flipcharts (flipchart paper and pens are provided), TV & VHS VCR, DVD and podium. A note pad and pen per delegate are also included.

Nearby amenities include a selection of well-known golf courses, tennis courts, deep-sea fishing charters, ocean safaris, Oribi Gorge, Wild Coast Sun, hiking trails and much more. There really is no place like Kwazulu-natal for a work event that doesn’t feel like work at all. The deck chairs are almost always out and the grass green all year round. Pumula Beach Hotel with its sun, sea, excellent service and sultry temperatur­es makes a lot of sense when it comes to choosing a venue with a little something for everyone.
