Attraction details
Owner description: Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom basks lazily in the green hills just north of Durban. Conveniently situated between Umdloti and Umhlanga, it is the ideal getaway for those seeking all the thrills and spills, laughs and luxury KwaZulu-Natal has to offer. In the Sibaya Casino, players and gamers can try their hand in some the biggest and most exciting tournaments that South Africa has ever seen.

If you are looking for a gambling experience but also want a relaxing holiday you can do no better than Sibaya. We spent 3 weeks there in April / May and what a time we had. We have been to Sibaya before but stayed in the lodge this time we stayed in the Sibaya hotel and what a difference. We stayed in an executive suite which was like an apartment with all amenities large power shower and separate guest bathroom. Room was spotless and looked onto the pool area with a verandah both by the living room and the bedroom area. Rooms were cleaned everyday sheets and towels changed daily the little extras like chocolates on the pillow each evening added the personal touch.
The Aqua restaurant is our favourite place to eat with delicious sea food and excellent wine list ask Lance the manager to do his party piece opening a champagne bottle with a sword very impressive. There is a live 2 piece band at the weekends and these guys were good entertainers. The staff at Aqua are very knowledgeable about the food they serve and Clinton and crew will make you very welcome.
As for the gaming you can get all your entertainment either in the prive room where Robin Kennedy and his staff are among the most pleasant and helpful or in the main gambling area were there are all the slots and tables you could wish for.
The Sibaya Casino is not in the main area of Durban but Umhlanga with its good restaurants is only a short drive away as is the KIng Shaka airport. If you want to get around you will need to hire a car if you do not have one but Sibaya is a little piece of calm and tranquillity among todays hustle and bustle with all the gambling excitement and with the Rand exchange against the £ great value for money FORGET VEGAS

We were group of 6 friends who were in mood to dance . Hence decided to visit Bhangra nights which happen only on Fridays . It starts after 10.30 pm and continue till 4 pm . All of us had our drinks before going to casino ( as drinks are over priced ) . Immediately took to floor and started dancing till 3 am . We were exhausted fully and returned back at 4 am on saturday. All Indian songs and indian crowd , must visit for all the Indians . Well managed security and safery for single women also . Everyone enjoys themselves without stepping over others . Dance floor is quite spacious with DJ playing superb Hindi songs . Though i was disappointed with no punjabi songs choice.

What a joke!!!!!

The Mangwanani franchise is a brilliant setup but i have to say that they are in desperate need of better therapists. The attitude from them was just another customer as what i experienced in Fourways too.

The location is surperb but seriously lacking in the experience. If you want to experience real Beauty Treatment, try out Rocher Beauty at Cabana Beach Resort.

Sorry but this was not what i expected and could be 100 times better.

I visited the mangwanani spa for the first time with my mum. We chose the moonlight night spa package. It was an incredible experience. When we arrived at the spa we were welcomed with drinks and a snack platter. we then were given gowns to change in as well as slippers. The gowns were too big even though we specifically stated the sizes on booking. The handing out of gowns and slippers was very unorganised. But other than that it was an awesome experience.
The food we were given was divine, I opted for the grilled fish while my mum had the chicken salad. The dessert was incredible. The only downfall with the food was that there was not enough time to enjoy the desserts in between massages.
The hot stone massage was absolutely fantastic. To end the night off we were given amarula and chocolates. We got to keep the slippers and the water bottles which was great.
Overall a fantastic experience. I will definitely be returning.
