Fodor's Expert Review Tsogo Sun Elangeni & Maharani

63 Tambo (Snell) Parade, Durban, KwaZulu Natal, 4001, South Africa

Overlooking North Beach along the Golden Mile, this combination of two adjacent high-rise hotels is a two-minute drive from the city center and attracts a mix of business, conference, and leisure travelers. Due to the amalgamation, the hotels collectively offer 2 business centres, 3 pools, 2 gyms and 8 restaurants. Though most rooms have views of the ocean, request a room on an upper floor to take advantage of a full sea view. The hotes houses one of the few Japanese restaurants in the city, as well as a the Lingela buffet-style restaurant. A minimum three-night stay is required during peak season.
