As you probably know from reading my posts, I love SA and especially Cape Town. However, it would be nice to see some hotels from other parts of the country as well!
I'd highly recommend looking into the Hotel Izulu, a Relais and Chateux property in Ballito (about 45 minutes north of Durban along the coast). The accommodation is five-star with a really interesting Afro-Asian twist to it and the food is great! Their motto is 'when only the very best will do' and this is definitely the very best hotel in the Durban area.
