Durban is known for its wonderful weather and the Gooderson Tropicana Hotel, one of the city’s most stylish beachfront hotels. It is the perfect year-round destination that offers something for everyone and is ideally situated on Durban’s Golden Mile, overlooking the warm Indian Ocean.

From the 168 rooms, guests can enjoy panoramic views, waking up to the sun rising over the breakers or looking out as the sun sets and the lights of the beachfront dot the evening sky. Large windows open to fresh ocean breezes while air conditioners beat the Durban heat. Each room features an en-suite bathroom and amenities that include a TV with selected DStv channels and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Diverse accommodation options mean this is the ideal venue for a business trip, an intimate getaway or a family break. Children under the age of 15 years stay free of charge and pay for breakfast only.

The Tropicana boasts 5 fully equipped conference or function venues. The largest seats up to 300 delegates in cinema-style. Professional banqueting staff ensures that each function is a success. As a result, the hotel is a very popular wedding reception venue. Guests have a wide range of conference and wedding packages to choose from.

The hotel is also a diner’s delight. Guests can relax on the terrace of the friendly sidewalk Clippers Cafe Bar and enjoy a variety of coffees and a slice of cake, a light meal, or simply a sundowner. The terrace is the ideal place to while away those lazy afternoons or watch an adrenaline-pumping sporting event. Dinner is served in the Seven Palms Restaurant, which also serves the renowned buffet breakfasts. The Ocean View Bar and Business Centre offers computer access, as well as light snacks and bar service late into the night.

Gooderson Tropicana Hotel is close to most of Durban’s attractions that include the beautiful beaches, uShaka Marine World, the International Convention Centre, Suncoast Casino, the Moses Mabhida- and Kings Park stadiums and the Kingsmead Cricket Ground. For adventurous visitors who wish to explore a little further, there are the Zululand game reserves, Zulu cultural experiences, and the breathtaking Drakensberg mountain range.
