The KZN (and indeed South African) hotel mix has always had a glaring gap, beach resorts. Tongaat Hulett have been pushing for this to change and partnered with the KZN government to get certain legalities out of the way.

Tinley Manor is surrounded by sugar cane fields owned by Tongaat Hulett, and they have set aside two land parcels for resort development. Both face the ocean and the river mouth.

Club Med Tinley Manor is the first proposed beach resort for the area. It is 25min from King Shaka international airport and about an hour from downtown Durban. Perfect distance to be out of the city, but in spitting distance still.

This is one to watch.

when? done loads of club meds with the kids in the med and awesome experience. moving back next week so will keep an eye on this
Not sure on the time frame yet, but in Tongaat Huletts most recent land report they stated they were installing infrastructure to support the development of the sites. So if this is underway, I would hazard a guess that construction would start in a year or so? Guess we need more info to be released.

Better renders and a resort layout. This will be very prominent with 345 rooms and a further 50 larger suites. The first subsaharan Club Med resort and meeting the drive for more beach resorts along the KZN coast. There are plans for another resort on the other side of the river mouth.

Club med have a site up and running with JLL http://clubmedtinley.live.jll.com

For more images of the hotel, I can't get them here - http://clubmedtinley.live.jll.com/gallery/

Yeah. The resort is just a small part. The master plan includes a second resort on the other side of the inlet, and masses of residential and commercial development. Will transform all the cane fields.

Well website was not up and running 3months ago when I last searched on this project. The renders are also newer than the ones on the architects website.

Again we keep hearing that this imminent from Tongaat so it's all we have to go on

Thanks, they look new and fresh! This is type of resort SA has been lacking for far far too long and will make a massive difference in attracting a broader range of tourists to the country giving a proper beach and bush offer

Fantastic to see that it is confirmed and locked to be Club Med. This will be transformational for KZN and will unlock other parts of the puzzle... And with 3 more resorts planned in Blythedale, Zimbali Lakes and North shore of Tinley.

Will unlock true beach and Bush holidays year round

There is alot of infrastructure that needs to be put in place to service the site before it is ready. It is in the middle of nowhere and off the grid. So all of that needs to be there.
