Royal Zulilly Ocean Villa

Relax | Enjoy | Experience


Situated on KwaZulu Natal’s unspoilt Dolphin Coast just 25 minutes north of Durban, 8 minutes south of Ballito, and a mere 10-minute drive from King Shaka International Airport, Royal Zulilly Exclusive Ocean Villa is a beautifully-appointed, exquisite gem nestled in the tranquil coastal forest of Westbrook Beach.  With its enchanting view of the warm Indian Ocean and only a stone’s throw from the beach, this quaint guest-home is the ideal luxury getaway, offering its guests an intimate, personal service catering to their every need.

Royal Zulilly’s unique and charming mix of African, beach-house and Bali-inspired architecture and décor lends itself to an ambiance of relaxation and comfort, leaving guests well-rested with wonderful memories to cherish.

Dedicated Service | Superb Food

On arrival, you will be welcomed by our team of friendly, dedicated staff, giving you just a taste of the wonderful, warm hospitality and attentive service you can expect during your stay.

Delicious breakfasts (inclusive) and light lunches (to-order) are prepared and served daily by the Chef. For dinner, guests are spoilt for choice with Westbrook’s popular Spice Restaurant right on the villa’s doorstep and many more superb eateries in nearby Ballito and trendy Umhlanga only 15 minutes away. Just ask, and we will gladly recommend the best dining-out venues to suit your palate. Or, if you prefer to dine in for the evening, Chef would be delighted to prepare one of his mouth-watering culinary specialities (by prior arrangement).

“How can we serve you?” is our motto. Our ‘extra-touch’, personal service and attention-to-detail are designed to make sure we deliver moments, memories and experiences that will leave you re-energised.

Villa Features & Attributes

The villa’s unique Afro-Bali-Beach theme and features exude stylish comfort and luxury to harmonise with the natural, tropical surrounds, and the calming sound of the sea.

The villa accommodates twelve guests in its six stylish, individually-decorated rooms. Five of the six rooms span the upper level of the villa, opening out onto a spacious deck overlooking the garden, pool and Indian Ocean. The sixth room is situated downstairs, intimately tucked behind the lounge.

GO TORooms, gallery and facilities

The downstairs sea-facing living area is open-plan, with a spacious lounge and dining room that flow seamlessly through stack-back glass doors onto the garden, boma, swimming pool and jacuzzi. Adjoining the dining room, just off the open-plan kitchen, is a covered pool-deck with a beautiful driftwood bar and outdoor dining furniture, where guests can enjoy sumptuous breakfasts or lunches al fresco-style, or sip sundowners on a warm, breezy evening.

Next to the swimming pool, perched under the shade of a beautiful indigenous Milkwood tree and encircled by natural driftwood furniture, the Zulu-inspired boma is the perfect setting for friends, loved ones and guests to gather around the fire-pit and create beautiful memories. For a true cultural experience, enjoy a delicious traditional South African barbecue (“braai”), or an authentic African feast, proudly prepared by the Chef.

Services | Activities | Experiences

There’s lots to do in and around the villa. Put your feet up by the pool and soak up the sun, sea-breeze and soothing lull of the ocean, or venture out to explore, discover and enjoy the multitude of fun activities, cultural attractions and memorable experiences, both locally and within driving distance.
