Many families have significant attachments to Pumula as they have returned year after year to create happier memories as the years pass us by ever so rapidly. As a family owned hotel we hold these family stories close to our hearts as we take great pride in being part of a family’s history and doing all in our power to ensure their memories are happy ones. We have never taken our foot of the peddle as we continuously strive to improve the hotel and its facilities without jeopardising its unique historic charm and in the process ensuring the experience each and every guest gets at Pumula gets better every time.
We pride ourselves in offering a constantly improving product and experience with utmost focus on personal attention and service excellence. This has lead Pumula Beach Hotel to continuously win awards year after year for exactly the above. Pumula Beach Hotel won the Lilizela award for the best 3 star hotel nationally for service excellence. Pumula Beach Hotel has also won the award for Best Family Hotel in South Africa 3 times! To achieve this level of excellence a huge amount of credit goes to the persistence and loyalty of the hotel staff and management who tirelessly maintain the highest standards. This environment lends itself to a very low Staff turnover with our oldest Staff recently achieving his 30th year Service Award. Proof of these efforts recently came from Consumer Watch radio and media personality, Wendy Knowler read as follows…“Good News some people still strive for excellence”…Kathy Nutman spent a week at the three-star Pumula Beach Hotel on the KwaZulu Natal South Coast with her family last month. Every staff member was friendly and went out of their way to make everything outstanding, even when we presented them with weird requests,” she said. “The food was outstanding, the wine list better than many a Joburg northern suburbs restaurant, the children’s entertainment exceptional and staff were constantly going out of their way to reunite guests with their mislaid personal items. The only other hotel in which I’ve had all my funny requests seen to with a smile, not matter what, was in Las Vegas, at eight times the price!”
