Durban – home to sizzling surf, the bunny chow and ‘Howzit my bru’, where the sun shines all year round and the seaside is never too far from your doorstep. The Oceanic Resort, found just metres from Durban’s popular beach promenade, welcomes you with arms wide open and is a glorious base from which to discover this warm (really warm) and welcoming city.
Durban is probably your best option in the country to truly escape the clutches of winter, with average temperatures reaching 25 – 27 degrees during the day; the weather is at its most steady this time of the year – perfect for long beach days, picnics or road trips.
While sipping your morning coffee over an early sunrise and planning your day ahead in one of South Africa’s most vibrant cities, you can allow yourself to get back on track during a refreshing weekend break at The Oceanic.
Onsite facilities include 27 high-rise, self-catering apartments, a swimming pool and outdoor braai area, Jacuzzi and the popular La Vita restaurant offering home style dishes to warm you from the inside out.
