REVIEW: The Capital Pearls Umhlanga

Talk about a view from the top! The Capital Pearls overlooks the silver coastlines of Umhlanga as far as the eye can see.

Step out from The Capital Pearls, and you step into the luxury of their private mall, the Umhlanga Pier & Lighthouse, and the many other local restaurants at the shores of the coastline.

We recently enjoyed a wonderful weekend at The Capital Pearls. Upon arrival, our bags were taken up to our room while we finalized our details at check-in.

Stepping into our hotel room we were in awe. Instead of tiny, cramped ordinary hotel rooms, we were met with a full-sized luxury apartment, equipped with a modern kitchen, living area, en-suite bathroom and a balcony with a gorgeous view!

Complementing The Capital Pearls are all the essentials for relaxation: A resort swimming pool, bar, sundeck, jacuzzi, more than sixteen restaurants to eat at, and a children’s play area.

We ate dinner at The Capital Pearls where we both got to try out the beef fillet & their 500g rib-eye steak paired with a glass of wine. Simply delicious!

Saturday was spent lounging around the pool, cocktail in hand all while reading a good book. We loved how there is a separate bar stationed at the pool which makes for faster service should you need food or drinks without having to go back inside.

We also decided to experience the wonderful Hello Hunny situated inside Pearls mall. We were both treated to an incredible 30 minute back, neck and shoulder massage. Hello Hunny is a beauty studio which offers facials, mani’s/pedi’s, waxing and massages. They are also stockists of Kalahari products!

Back at The Capital Pearls, we treated ourselves to a room service dinner. Convenient for when you’re just feeling too lazy to go downstairs to eat, or if you’re getting ready for a night out and just don’t have the time! (Which was us this time around.)

We ordered a 3-course meal over the phone, and within 40 minutes our entire course had arrived in silver platters. We loved how we could store any left-overs in our fridge!

With the Umhlanga Village being within walking distance from The Capital Pearls, we walked over to Steak & Ale where we shared a few drinks with friends. We were completely at ease not having to worry about parking or having to drive back home.

The Capital Pearls also offers a complimentary shuttle to Gateway Theatre of Shopping – making your stay that much more convenient.
