• Romantic evenings at the pool


Throughout February couples can enjoy “28 Days of Romance” at Umtamvuna View Cabanas. So, if you miss out booking the Valentine’s weekend, you can choose any other date during February to celebrate the most romantic holiday of the year! For the Romantic at heart we have provided a ‘Time With Your Valentine’ package which includes; heart shaped artificial bridal rose-petals on your bed, romantic fairy lights above the bed headboard, battery operated fairy lights on bedside tables, tea candles on the veranda and an arrival “chilled Ice Tea” for two due to the covid ‘alcohol restrictions’.


Umtamvuna View Self Catering Cabanas is situated in a secluded cul-de-sac in a rural setting overlooking panoramic views of the Umtamvuna Gorge valley, picturesque mountains and a glimpse of the river which divides Kwa Zulu Natal from the (Transkei) and Eastern Cape.  Umtamvuna View Cabanas has the feeling of tranquillity and remoteness due to its location but is within easy commuting distance to Port Edward town, shops, beach and the Wild Coast Casino as well as other well-known local attractions.  If you need a piece of heaven to unwind and totally relax away from all the crowds, then this is the place for you. It's the perfect time to whisk your loved one away for a romantic getaway in a Cabana that is full of character with beautiful detail and breath-taking views to make you fall in love all over again.
