I was on business for one night in KZN and a colleague suggested Cowrie Cove in La Lucia near Durban. What a brilliant suggestion. From King Shaka Airport it is about a 20 minute journey using the M2/M41/M4. Easy to find. Upon entering, one immediately just falls in love with this place; It is a calm refuge from the busy world outside. The rooms are suites and are huge, tastefully decorated with elegant and functional furniture. My bed was incredibly comfortable and the sheets were Egyptian percale cotton. The shower in the bathroom was massive and the bathroom fittings were really classy and ultra-functional-a rare combination. Secluded patio with exterior furniture outside.There is an exquisite attention to detail in Cowrie Cove that is so obviously lacking in so many other hospitality establishments these days. Breakfast was a sumptuous affair, individually cooked to my requirements and it just hit the spot magnificently. Help yourself to tea and coffee throughout the day and there is an honesty bar available for guests. Unwind with a drink around the lovely pool at night. Sheer heaven. Kim and Garth are very friendly and helpful owners and ensure your stay is hassle-free. I didn't manage to visit the beach on this occasion but am sure I will manage it next time round as it is very close by. Can't wait to return!
