The coastal village of Morgan Bay lies nestled between majestic cliffs and a mile-long stretch of unspoilt beach. It is flanked by a stunning lagoon which carves open a sandy mouth to the raw beauty of the Indian Ocean.

Yet in spite of it's incredible natural beauty, it is the simple memories of good times had there that people often recall when they speak affectionately of 'Morgs'. Morgan Bay is essentially a place of lifetimes of fond memories plenty of old ones, and many new ones still to come. It is a place of friends and family where both children's laughter and the cry of the Fish Eagle are second nature a sort of safe haven of halcyon days spent splashing in the sun and good times shared with loved ones. In Morgan Bay, life is able to stand still whilst the hustle and bustle of day-to-day city life passes one by. Where everyone is always on holiday, being removed from the present somehow enables one to reconnect with ones past. And as has been said by many a wise man: 'If you know where you're at and where you've come from, it helps to tell you where you're going'.
Time spent in Morgan Bay epitomizes everything that a good holiday should entail - a good amount of rest, good company, good food, good times etc. It's a place to get lost and find oneself, and a place to be oneself again.
Anyone who has ever been to Morgan Bay will understand what it means to feel welcomed back again.

The separate (very well-catered) dining room for kids under 5 years old, the nannies, and the entertainment team. My oldest son Leo still talks about the sandcastle-building competition and the treasure hunts.
A pram if you have a child under three, even if you don’t usually use one. Some of the rooms are a bit of a distance from the action and it’s easier to push them up the hill than to carry them.
Private dinner in the Green Door wine cellar, the mangrove walk, yoga on the beach, the spa (which has just received the Les Nouvelles award for the most unique spa concept category).
However whatever you choose to do at Umngazi it is sure to be a fantastic way to leave the world behind!
