South Africa’s first Hilton Garden Inn


Hilton has signed a management agreement with UA Hotel Company to open a 207-room Hilton Garden Inn in Umhlanga, Durban on South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal coast.

Hilton Garden Inn is the group’s “select services” brand and the hotel is expected to open in 2020.

The new hotel will be part of Umhlanga Arch, a significant mixed-use development under construction in Umhlanga’s Ridgeside precinct.

The Hilton Garden Inn Umhlanga Arch will be in close proximity to King Shaka International Airport, La Lucia Ridge, Durban and the Gateway Theatre of Shopping.

The hotel will offer its own business and fitness centres, an outdoor pool and various food and beverage outlets, including a garden and lounge bar.

Africa is home to nearly 90 Hilton hotels trading and under development across five brands, including Hilton Garden Inn.
