REVIEW: Teremok Marine Umhlanga
Teremok Marine which means “Little Hideaway” – Was previously an expansive Umhlanga holiday home now turned into a Boutique Lodge and Spa.
Discovered and transformed into a magical place by a mother and her two daughters – it’s a no wonder about the amount of attention to detail this place contains.
Teremok Marine opened its doors in December 2003, and then in 2008 and 2014 a décor refresh and light refurbishment were done to keep up with current trends and technology. Teremok undertook another development in mid-2010 when the Spa and gym facility was completely renovated and reopened as a sumptuous refuge.
As you drive in, you’re greeted by what seems like a tropical destination with beautiful surrounding indigenous Milkwoods!
We were met at our car as soon as we parked, and our bags were kindly and effortlessly carried up to our room while we checked in at the reception.
Walking into our room called the Durban View, we were blown away by the decor which was very vintage, yet modern at the same time. The room lived up to its name of course, with a beautiful view!
As we entered our room, we noticed two sheets of paper which had details of our spa booking. We made our way down to Teremok Spa and were effortlessly escorted into two separate treatment rooms.
I was treated to a BT anti-aging facial followed by a Dermalogica facial. As I type this, I’m remembering now how soft and smooth my face feels – this comes highly recommended!
Nick, on the other hand, was treated to a heavenly 60-minute full body massage.
Oh, and did I mention how beautiful the treatment room looked?
Teremok Marine offers a free evening shuttle to local restaurants. So the reception had booked us dinner at Butcher Boys for 7pm, and personally drove us there and back. This meant we could both enjoy a glass of wine or two without worrying about driving back!
Breakfast the next morning was served, made to feel as if you were right at home. What a delicious spread!
Teremok Marine comes highly recommended, with a great location, beautifully decorated rooms and value for money.
