Celebrations include live music on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with cabaret/dinner in the offing.

On December 16, 1969, the face of Umhlanga changed forever. ‘The place of reeds’ witnessed the opening of the Beverly Hills hotel. This was Sol Kerzner’s first hotel, named after his daughter Beverly, and the first 5 star hotel in South Africa.

The hotel has become a landmark and icon hotel in KwaZulu-Natal epitomizing warm gracious hospitality and personal service. Five gentlemen who started their hotel careers in the hotel in 1969 are still loyal employees of the hotel and their memoires read like the who’s who of Hollywood. The rich and famous have graced the doors with many returning time and time again for pure indulgence and to languish in the exceptional hospitality offered.

As the grande dame of KZN takes on her mid-forties, the guests can revel in the celebrations and gifting. Until December 18, the venue offers special rates on birthday cakes, Pierre Jourdan bubbly, mezze platters and a sumptuous three-course set menu in the signature restaurant The Sugar Club @ R450 per couple, with a complimentary glass of bubbly. Celebrate in style and overnight at the hotel for just R1,450 pp.

Wallace Nock provides live music every Friday and Saturday night and for Sunday Smorgasbord. More information on 031 561 2211.

The Beverly Hills will run cabaret /dinner from December 18 to January 2. Watch this space!
