Umhlanga’s new apartment hotel is a Capital idea!

Luxury hotel and apartment group The Capital Hotels & Apartments has opened The Capital Pearls Resort Hotel in Umhlanga, KwaZulu Natal.


The Capital Pearls has direct access onto the main Umhlanga Beach, and offers 140 apartments and extensive conference and meeting facilities accommodating up to 200 delegates.

The contemporary apartments are a mixture of executive suites, and one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, each including a modern fully equipped kitchen and living area, all designed to strike a balance between the comfort of home and the luxury of resort living.

The hotel is in the fifth phase of The Pearls of Umhlanga development, offering easy access to a swimming pool, bar, sun deck, more than 16 restaurants and a children’s play area. Complimentary access to the development’s Planet Fitness Gym is also available to all residents.

All within walking distance is The Pearls Mall, the Umhlanga Pier and Lighthouse, Umhlanga beach promenade and the many other local restaurants and amenities that make Umhlanga a popular choice for conferencing and leisure trips.

Officially opening its doors in December 2017, The Capital Pearls is the group’s eighth property in South Africa, and its first property outside the main cities of Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town.

“Our guests choose The Capital’s hotels and apartments across South Africa because we are 25 per cent more affordable than other hotels of comparable size and quality,” says Marc Wachsberger, MD at The Capital Hotels and Apartments.

The Capital Pearls, along with all The Capital’s properties across South Africa, will not offer services such as porters, bedtime turndowns, sewing kits or unlimited toiletries. Instead, it is designed to make travellers stay more efficient and cost effective by offering free uncapped high-speed internet, laundry services, secure parking, and shuttle services.

The hotel is the perfect place for families holidaying in Umhlanga to stay, as its spacious apartments all include a kitchen – perfect for preparing midnight snacks, family meals, or even prepping food to meet youngsters’ particular tastes and eating schedules. The hotel’s play area is a great place for them to burn off some energy, while the pool is the perfect place to splash around.

The Capital Pearls also offers a comprehensive solution for business travellers who seek a balance between the comfort of home and the luxury of resort living when they’re travelling for work.

The Capital Pearls offers conferencing facilities for up to 200 people, with six different spaces that can be configured and equipped to host banquets, lectures, workshops, or private meetings and fine dining.

Accommodation options in The Capital Pearls include 38m2 studio suites that offer a king-size bed or a twin set, with a modern kitchen and living area, and tea and coffee facilities. Bathrooms have showers, and ocean-facing studios have balconies to make the most of the coastal views.

The 75m2 one-bedroom apartments include a bath and shower, as well as a contemporary living room, dining area and balcony. A fully equipped kitchen makes this an ideal choice for the executive visiting the Umhlanga area on business, providing an alternative to the 16 restaurants that are part of the Pearls complex.

The 90m2 two-bedroom apartments include the same features as the one-bedroom units, although they have two bathrooms, and the option of a king-size or twin beds in the second bedroom.

The 150m2 three-bedroom apartments are ideal for professionals, large groups or families, and offer modern living spaces and first-class facilities, including a work space and an entertainment area, in addition to the standard kitchen and dining facilities.
