Connecting You To The Best Of The KZN Coast – aha Gateway Hotel
With the year already in full swing, thoughts are turning to the next big holiday break on the SA calendar – Easter Weekend. The sunny skies, golden beaches and numerous attractions that Durban has to offer make it an ever-popular Easter vacation spot, but being in the know about the right place to stay can turn a pleasant holiday into a perfect one.
The effortlessly chic and eco-friendly aha Gateway Hotel in the heart of Umhlanga is the destination of choice for those in the know: neatly positioned attached to the Umhlanga Theatre of shopping, the hotel’s convenient access to the buzz and bustle of Umhlanga’s many activities make taking that refreshing Easter break that much easier.
Everyone in the family might have their own idea of what makes a holiday special, from luxuriating on the beach or splashing in the waves; to indulge in some retail therapy at high-end stores. Perhaps for the kids, it’s a thrilling trip to uShaka Marine World oceanarium, where they can learn about marine life and enjoy the exhilarating water rides.
For nature lovers, the Durban Botanical Gardens or the breathtaking beauty of the Valley of a Thousand Hills are easily accessible, and if you fancy a spot of golf, iPlanet Golf, The Golfers Club and Durban Country Club Beachwood are all nearby.
No one has to feel left out, as the aha Gateway Hotel is the ideal base from which to enjoy all of these activities and more. What’s more, the Hotel itself offers a gorgeous rooftop pool and bar: after a long, hot day of shopping and sightseeing, sitting and sipping a cool cocktail and watching the sun sink over the horizon will make your pre-holiday stresses feel a million miles away.
Facilities-wise, you are spoilt for choice, as the hotel offers 146 rooms, including inter-leading family rooms and junior suites, or superior rooms with an ensuite bathroom and balcony. There are also two rooms with access to comfortably accommodate guests with disabilities.
When hungry you can head out for a meal and sample some of Durban’s flavourful and vibrant cuisine, or step into the Hotel’s cool and contemporary Fig Tree Cafe, which serves delicious meals and snacks throughout the day, styled by Chef Manoj Rama.
Take a break from work stress and traffic woes to plan your Easter getaway at aha Gateway Hotel – and let the countdown to the tropical climes and sun-kissed warmth of Umhlanga begin.
