Fodor's Expert Review Protea Hotel Waterfront Richards Bay

Corner of Pioneer and Bridgetown rds., TuziGazi Waterfront, Richards Bay, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

Views are not an issue at this modern hotel right on the bay, as all of the rooms face the water (some on the second and third floors also have balconies). Handsomely decorated in dark wood and earth tones, all the rooms are spacious enough for a king-size bed, and bathrooms have both bath and shower. The hotel is located close to good dining, which is a plus since the in-hotel restaurant is expensive.
