About Us

Summer is Coming

Summer is on the way, and we’re getting ready for the always-crazy, most wonderful, time of year at Anchor’s Rest.

The Sun Comes Out in Umhlanga
During the summer holiday season, Umhlanga comes to life, as tourists and visitors pour in, to enjoy and explore our sunny side of the South African coastline. If you’re returning to our shores, or visiting for the very first time, we welcome you to the Durban lifestyle. Pop in for a sundowner and we’ll take you through some of the more important must-see and must-eat-at spots for this season.

Our Rooms Are Filling Up Fast!
Of course, if you’ve been lucky enough to book your stay with us for the festive season, you’ll know you’ve got lots to look forward to at Anchor’s Rest! If you haven’t yet booked your Durban holiday accommodation, be quick about it! Our rooms are filling up fast for the holiday season.

Umhlanga Summer Festival
The Umhlanga Summer Festival is an annual celebration of the best coastline to visit (that’s us, in Umhlanga!) and this year looks set to be a fabulous carnival of summer delights. You can expect an itinerary of diverse events, beach parties and idyllic summer events. The Umhlanga Summer Festival takes place from 14 to 23 December 2017, and you can find out more here
