The Royal Palm Hotel is a luxury 4 Star hotel situated opposite Gateway Theatre of Shopping in the upmarket seaside suburb of Umhlanga in Durban. Stepping into the reception area, one can’t help but gaze heavenward admiring the arched glass ceiling walled on either side by corridors leading to the 94 luxury apartments that make up the Royal Palm Hotel. The rooms are made up of 14 penthouses, 60 luxurious suites, 10 deluxe rooms and 10 two bedroomed executive suites all equipped with the amenities to enjoy a comfortable stay.

The décor in the large open plan reception area is modern contemporary in design boasting comfortable leather sofa’s scattered with beautifully covered cushions. Natural materials such as leather and wood form part of this open, airy feeling that is the main entrance to the hotel where guests can sit and relax to enjoy a good cup of coffee or refreshing beverage of their choice.

The apartment that I shared with Nicola (Run on Coffee) was a two bedroomed, double storey executive suite with a full kitchenette for self-catering purposes. This suite is the ideal space for a family enjoying a holiday on the sunny east coast of South Africa. The room is fully equipped with 2 full bedrooms, 1 shower room and 1 full bathroom and all the amenities of luxury, including free wi-fi, flat screen TV’s, DSTV channels, air-conditioning throughout as well as a comfortable lounge and dining room area.

If your holiday stay does not include cooking or providing your own meals, you can make use of the gorgeous, clean open space called Thyme which is the hotel’s on-site restaurant. The eatery offers guests an array of scrumptious food to choose from such as the delicious lamb curry which was my dish of choice on the night of my stay.

A fully equipped bar area with comfortable cubicle style seating allows guests to enjoy a few drinks before dinner or just sit and relax and cheer on your favourite team as you watch a game on one of the bar’s flat screen TV’s. The restaurant also has an outdoor courtyard area if you prefer to eat your dinner under the stars on a beautiful Durban evening.

The Royal Palm Hotel is not just about luxury accommodation, it’s about building relationships with the friendly, helpful staff that brings patrons back time and time again; it’s home away from home.
