Welcome to the Holiday Inn Express Durban - Umhlanga

Stay at the ocean view Holiday Inn Express Durban-Umhlanga Ridge hotel, next to Umhlanga Beach and minutes from the Gateway Mall.

The contemporary Holiday Inn Express Durban- Umhlanga Ridge's curving facade faces the Indian Ocean. You'll pass an elegant fountain on your way to meet our friendly team in the light-filled Lobby. This Durban beach hotel is 10km from Durban's vibrant city centre and rail station, and 13km from King Shaka International Airport, and is the perfect location for Durban South Africa conventions.

Leave your vehicle in our car park when you attend seminars in Holiday Inn Express Durban-Umhlanga Ridge's 3 air-conditioned meeting rooms. The hotel is near Durban International Convention Centre, a short 15-minute drive away, and it is a short taxi ride to meetings at Alexander Forbes and Deloitte.

The Gateway Theatre of Shopping, 400 metres away, has a Wave House surf centre and a towering 24-metre climbing wall, as well as a range of high fashion stores. Glitzy stage shows take place at the Sibaya Casino, 15km away. Head for a dip in our sunny outdoor pool, centred by a calming water feature. The maritime theme continues in our Great Room, with its ornate sea shell decor, where a complimentary breakfast buffet is prepared each morning. Meet over Castle beers on our Great Room bar's veranda before grill suppers at the Butcher Block steakhouse, right next door to Holiday Inn Express Durban-Umhlanga Ridge.


The HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS DURBAN-UMHLANGA offers stunning sea views. Ideally situated within walking distance to the upmarket Gateway Shopping and Entertainment Centre and within short driving distance from the Umhlanga beachfront.
