A Peaceful Haven in the heart of Umhlanga Rocks

Anchor's Rest Guesthouse in the heart of Umhlanga Rocks is the place to head for if your idea of heaven is a sub-tropical climate, sun-drenched beaches, golden sunsets and superb local restaurants. Because of our all year round good climate, warm seas and safe swimming beaches, Umhlanga Rocks has always been a preferred holiday destination, drawing visitors both locally and from overseas.

All of our self-catering guest suites have a private entrance and patio with barbeque facilities and all of our accommodation has air-conditioners, ceiling fans, en-suite bathrooms, with shower and bath, TV with personal DSTV decoders, tea and coffee making facilities, under counter fridge, personal safe and hairdryer.

Each self-catering suite has its own well-appointed kitchenette and its own lounge area which leads onto a private patio, lush tropical gardens or sea facing pool deck. The B&B option is available to all of our guests with a choice between a hearty continental breakfast or a full style English breakfast.

After a busy day sightseeing, or sun tanning on the beach, you can relax in our tranquil surroundings, or unwind around the swimming pool.

In the evening, bar-b-que under the stars or take a stroll to any number of nearby good quality restaurant and bars. Secure off-street parking is provided as well as free (fibre optics) high speed Wi.Fi. A laundry service is also available at a nominal charge.
