Immerse yourself in nature at the Estuary Hotel & Spa in Port Edward

Estuary Hotel & Spa

The Estuary Hotel & Spa is located in the quiet town of Port Edward, along the pristine south coast of KwaZulu Natal. My stay at this beautiful hotel was certainly a memorable one.

From the moment I arrived at the Estuary Hotel, I knew I was in for a wonderful stay. I immediately noticed the tropical surroundings, both within the hotel’s facilities as well as throughout the region. We made our way down the winding road to the reception area, it was definitely a welcome sight after a long journey.

We unpacked our bags and made our way to our room for the evening, my friends and I stayed in a Seaview Facing Room. The room was open plan and contained all of the amenities one would expect, whilst the bathroom was certainly quite luxurious. The views overlooking the estuary and estate were simply superb.

You can expect a peaceful escape when visiting the Estuary Hotel & Spa, virtually the only sounds that we heard during our stay was the birds chirping. This gentle background noise was another reminder of the tranquil location we found ourselves in.

We made our way down to the dining area for our breakfast; this area is tastefully furnished and maintains a sense of elegance throughout. The buffet breakfast that was served had such a great variety; there was bacon, eggs, omelets, scones, muffins as well as tea and coffees. It was certainly a great way to start our day, we felt ready to tackle what lay ahead.

My stay at the Estuary Hotel & Spa met my every expectation and in some cases exceeded them. I will forever remember the picturesque views that can be enjoyed at this gem of a hotel.

Accommodation at the Estuary Hotel

Accommodation at the hotel consists of 44 luxurious and comfortable rooms, each of them spacious and including en-suite bathrooms. The bathrooms include both a shower and a bath, I found this quite refreshing as generally it is a choice of one or the other.

The accommodation is built in a Cape Dutch style and it is certainly an effective look from a bygone era.

I personally found that my stay had a real sense of privacy and seclusion, despite being surrounded by many other properties.

During your stay you can enjoy room service which is available from 10h30 until 21h30.

The private balconies are a great place to simply sit back and enjoy the viewing opportunities at this luxury retreat. I also enjoyed spending some time on the balcony in the morning as I got a chance to take a moment and enjoy what was before me.

Your stay will include the following amenities: complimentary Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, electronic safe, satellite television, mini bar fridge, tea and coffee making facilities.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
