We camped and got more than expected. There is plenty of beautiful space to put up a tent, listen to birds and just relax. Facilities include power points with automatic lights at night, kitchenette with separate mens and ladies toilets and showers, outdoor shower, restaurant and a river to fish in. The owners are also really friendly and are more...

This is the perfect getaway to fully unwind and recharge!! One really leaves Wellvale Resort relaxed and ready to face life again. Go prepared with enough drinks and food for the self-catering option.

Please invest in fridges for the rooms & Aircons, this is especially a huge problem with children keeping their daily needs like colddrink, yoghurt and cheese cold and fresh, One can not walk from lodge 6 to the kitchen used by the campers to get your stuff. Please re-look at your parking plan, to ensure that the visitors can park...

13km of terrible dirt road lead to a lovely oasis in the middle of nowhere. Superb bathroom and outdoor shower, and very spacious cabins. We missed bedside tables for personal items needed close by, like spectacles, phone etc. The communal kitchen was great, but quite a distance from the cabin. This would be a location better suited to guests who...

Wellvale is a hidden gem in KZN. We spent an idyllic weekend in this peaceful, tranquil setting with fantastic hosts. I would strongly recommend a stay in this haven and thank Jaap and Nienke for the wonderful hospitality.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wellvale Resort, a top class eco-tourism hideaway, is bordered by the Mvoti River and boasts spectacular views of the Nsikeni Mountain. Situated in the popular Dolphin Coast region, Wellvale is only a short drive from Durban's King Shaka International Airport and perfectly located for day trips to some of South Africa's finest beaches. Accommodation is provided in luxury Lodges along the river with outdoor showers and king-sized beds, or in our family room which can sleep four people comfortably. We also have three shaded campsites and self-catering facilities for the more adventurous. Meals are served on our terrace where you can enjoy the bird song of the many different species resident at Wellvale while taking in the view of the mountains. After dinner you can relax in our fully-stocked, cosy bar, or pull up a chair beside the outdoor pit fire and enjoy a night-cap. As supporters of eco-friendly tourism we run our resort with the environment and local community in mind. You are welcome to visit some of the projects that we facilitate in the area, including an after schools club for local children and a soccer training initiative. Wellvale River Resort is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed retreat, while still being well-placed to explore the beautiful Dolphin Coast. ... more   less
