The palace, reflecting on parts of KZN history, is the vision of Durban artist Peter Amm, who has used his entire collection of Zulu art and crafts,
incorporated into more than 40 beaded columns of exquisite beauty.

It has been designed principally by Kevin MacGarry of Architects Collaborative, with assistance from the owner, who has been
nurturing the site for some four decades.

The visitor to this truly unique destination will be forgiven if he or she felt a distinct sensory overload as there is so much to take in,

Perfect location to explore both North, South & the Midlands. Kloof is an upmarket quiet, leafy suburb where you can walk, cycle or go for a run. The Hotel is absolutely amazing, massive rooms with loads of African Arts and Crafts.

As a business traveler you see many hotels - but the Amamzulu African Palace is different. The decoration in the African Amazulu style is overwhelming. The whole house is colorful and overflowing with work of arts. Any time you discover something new. The house is located directly on the Kloof with a magnificent view of the valley. The terrace with its view is a great place to end the day with a beer or glass of wine.
The rooms are large, clean and comfortable and give no reason for complaint. The owner was very flexible regarding the time for breakfast. The rich breakfast itself was freshly prepared with fresh fruits, cereals, toast and eggs and bacon, etc.
I enjoyed the stay very much and would gladly come back.

Wow! Came down for a 40th and a break from the rat race and we left completely refreshed and rejuvenated! Secluded and quiet and all the amenities you could wish for. Perfect for a chilled breakaway with your loved one. We will definitely be back! I’ll bring my trail shoes next time as the Kloof is right next door.

What an amazing experience. Let's start with Alta, the manageress, not only did she respond to all our queries immediately, She was prepared to go above and beyond the call of duty. Her knowledge of the establishment was impressive. Ammazulu - we loved the clean, spacious rooms. The intricate African decor and artworks - breathtaking. The architural symmetry is something to behold. The decor doubling as acoustic instruments to stop any echoing in the cavenous hall is architectural ingenuity. The view over the valley is indescribably beautiful. Our breakfast was natural foods, freshly prepared and beautifully presented. The staff were friendly and attentive. We will be back to hike the Krantzkop gorge in the valley below, to sample the jacuzzi on offer and to have sundowners on the deck. Ammazulu is a winner!!!

We have stayed here twice now and can’t wait to go again. It is just on the edge of the greater Durban area but it feels like you’re out in the country being on the edge of Kloof gorge. The actual hotel decor is indescribably amazing it is magical. Rooms are very large, beds comfortable, cannot fault them on anything. The breakfasts are outstanding. This is a hidden gem that I would recommend for a weekend getaway for anyone, just go and stay there you will love it!

I have stayed over at this establishment a number of times. It remains one of the best experiences in guesthouses - the rooms, the view and the decor. I only noticed recently that they added a sauna to the experience!!! A must.

You cannot describe this hotel easily as it is totally unusual and amazing. The decor is all made from recycled items, glance up at the pillars decorated with marbles and you will see an array of teacups and metal kitchen items hanging down, or look at the sculptures made from tree roots, a large chicken in the garden which has a super-market trolley in its head, pictures made from items from around the world eg: embroidered handbags from Thailand together with slippers and a bathmat! Sounds crazy but it works. One of the staff will take you round and explain everything to you. there are lovely views from the terrace outside too. Not to be missed.
