Tony Balabanoff, CLHG divisional director: operations, and Lizelle Henze, opening general manager of Town Lodge Umhlanga, are excited to bring the latest in affordable hotel experiences to business and leisure guests.
Zuki Jantjies, CLHG divisional director: sales and marketing, and Jennifer Beard, group sales manager, receive a warm welcome from workers on the construction site of Town Lodge Umhlanga during Africa’s Travel Indaba in May 2019.
The 154-room Town Lodge Umhlanga is located on the corner of Umhlanga Ridge Boulevard and Meridian Drive in Umhlanga Rocks, KwaZulu-Natal. It is close to sister properties, the 168-room City Lodge Hotel Umhlanga Ridge and the 125-room Road Lodge Umhlanga Ridge, adding another CLHG brand to this growing business and leisure node.
Town Lodge Umhlanga will have a fresh identity that will secure its share of future markets to this busy region. It will be a place where people stay, meet and relax, from new, trendy travellers to regular, loyal clientele.
The hotel will welcome guests to a fresh design concept across four floors and, as with all CLHG properties, include rooms designed to meet the special needs of the disabled. Other notable features include two boardrooms (16 pax and 14 pax), spacious restaurant, swimming pool and parking bays for 110 cars.
“Town Lodge Umhlanga will offer the delicious full English and Continental breakfast offering and will have a lovely sundowner bar serving draught beer, cocktails and trendy gins,” says Tony Balabanoff, divisional director: operations.
The newest Town Lodge is within close proximity to the beach, Gateway Theatre of Shopping and Durban, and a 15-minute drive from King Shaka International Airport.
