    Pleasant accommodation in a dune forest setting


    Over the past few years, I have had to spent time in Richards Bay on business, and prefer to stay in the Imvubu Lodge. I find it a nice, uncomplicated place to stay, that provides comfortable accommodation at a reasonable cost. This is unusual as Richards Bay can be expensive because of the number of business tourists coming through town.

    What I like about Imvubu is that it is set a little way out of the rather unlovely town centre and has been tastefully developed amid coastal dune forest. Each hut is out of view of its neighbours, and there is a nice shady pool complex. Although it is right on the coast, it is not possible to access the beach from the top of the cliff (which is a major plus from a security point of view), but you can get a good view out over the coastline and the entrance to the port.

    The restaurant is very pleasant and overlooks a small lake with good birdlife. The food is good but unspectacular, and the breakfast buffet is generous.

    I have used Imvubu on business, but it would also make good holiday accommodation, particularly for families.

    For first time visitors, Richards Bay is rather spread out, and you will probably need a car to get around. The town layout is confusing, so try to make sure that you pick up a copy of the excellent town map from tourist information if you arrive at the airport, or bring a GPS.
