The Sani Pass Hotel

Nestled in the beautiful Mkhomazana Valley at the foot of the notorious Sani Pass, Sani Pass Hotel and Leisure Resort is well known for its warm hospitality, breathtaking views of the Drakensberg and personal service.

Opening its doors in 1958, the Resort has played host to many generations creating delightful memories. Only 6.5 hours from Johannesburg and 2.5 hours from Durban, the resort offers a host of indoor and outdoor activities to keep the whole family, international and business travelers entertained.

The hotel can accommodate up to 175 guests and our extensive range of facilities ensures non-stop fun and relaxation for all.

Now under new management, a team with a wealth of international hospitality experience, renovations have been well underway since 2011 restoring this historical hotel to its former glory with a whisper of modern styling.
