Inside Beverly Hills


Whether you’ve been there or not, practically everyone you know has heard about Beverly Hills hotel down in uMmhlanga, Durban.  Established in 1964, it offers panoramic beach views and 5-star rooms. Rich in history, it was the spark of a dream that Sol Kerzner had many, many years ago when he sat on the shoreline of the uMhlanga beachfront. Earlier this year I was lucky enough to spend a few days at ‘the Bev’, as it is fondly known by locals and regular guests and my stay will be forever remembered.

The hotel staff have ensured that it their service is designed to take care of every single need, from newspapers on the door to laying out the slippers at your bedside at night. The terrace offers panoramic views of the sea which compete in beauty at both day and night.

Exciting news is that the team who run the Bev have recently embarked on their very own social media journey.  For snippets of info and a peek into their lives, give them a follow.

Now, do yourself a favour and take a look at the photos of this gorgeous hotel.  Where else would you rather be at right this very second?  Yes, I thought so.

  1. How I wish to stay at one of the Tsogo Sun hotels, its my dream. Ive heard that you guys have the best hotels in the country. I always see pictures of the rooms and the dream gets bigger. I know one day I will.

  2. The hotel looks stunning. I have never been there as I’m from cpt. Perhaps I’ll make a booking for the end of year and surprise the family. Looks amazing

  3. Why set foot on international shores when we have everything right here in Durban? Durban has the best coastline and vibe thats within reach. Beverly Hills has always been a mascot for Umhlanga and what a luxurious establishment it is. I have had the honour of going there for many business functions as well as spending some quality time with friends whilst sipping on cocktails watching the majestic sun set over the Indian ocean. It doesn’t get any more opulent like the Beverly Hills and I am sure to have this spectacular hotel on my no.1 list if ever I am celebrating anything!

  4. Of course my favourite hotel would feature in this brand new blog….the only hotel in the world with opulence, luxury and service par excellence! You have not lived until you visit the Bev and experience hospitality second to none from the best team in the world. From kamantha at reservations, Colin at front desk, Claude the jack of all trades, Naveen at f&b, Moira at housekeeping and the best GM that ever lived John de Canha! Love you guys….

  5. Such a glorious hotel -glad it has been beautifully restored since its steeped in memories and years

  6. I love the Beverly hills. My daughter always takes me there. Its the best lamb curry at Elements. The staff treat you like such royalty. Everyone feels like a celebrity. The GM John is so visible throughout the day and he makes for engaging conversation. We love kamantha, she is so warm and hospitable, and also Colin and Claude. Great team!

  7. Beverly Hills is absolutely beautiful but leaves a little to be desired after dining there a short while ago. Was very surprised that the wine by the glass was more expensive than the bottle itself. Hopefully this has changed and decent wines are now served by the glass. Not very memorable compared to Elangeni and Oyster Box. Will give it a try again soon.

    1. For me the Bev is the only hotel with consistently great service … The Oyster Box did nothing for me especially the extremely poor service. I am indifferent to prices if I am treated like a VIP as I am at the Bev.

  8. Just love the services you offer and your specials are affordable, You truly the best hotel I ever seen, Big up Beverley Hills you are my number 1 hotel, much love of you guys:)

  9. The “Bev” is one of those hotels that as you walk down to the beach in Umhlanga, you just imagine what is inside as you walk past… Thanks for giving us a peak! Looks STUNNING!

  10. Wow the Beverly hotel is so beautiful,its like a wonderful dream but one day hopefully I can stay there and my dreams will come true

  11. Oh my! That’s stunning! Thin I need to get hubby to book us a weekend away at the Beverly Hills!

  12. OMW, can I just book in tonight? Hahaha… ok, no… but soon!!! Have never been to the BH and seems like Ive been missing out BIG TIME!

  13. Wow… looking amazing…. we stayed @ the Beverly Hills for our honeymoon in March 1994….. was an awesome time… so I think its time to go back!!!!

  14. I always look at that amazing hotel when I’m in Durban and I agree with the others it’s a dream to spend at least one evening there 🙂
