About Tropicana Hotel
Gooderson Leisure’s Tropicana Hotel, one of the Durban beachfront’s most stylish hotels, is the perfect year-round destination that offers something for everyone. Ideally situated on Durban's Golden Mile overlooking the warm Indian Ocean, it is close to most of Durban’s attractions – the beautiful beaches, uShaka Marine World, the International Convention Centre, Suncoast Casino, the Moses Mabhida and Kings Park stadiums and the Kingsmead Cricket Ground. For adventurous visitors who wish to venture a little further, there’s the Zululand Game reserves, Zulu cultural experiences and the breath taking Drakensberg.
From the 168 rooms guests can enjoy panoramic views, waking up to the sun rising over the breakers or looking out as the sun sets and the lights of the beachfront dot the evening sky. Large windows open to fresh ocean breezes while air conditioners beat the Durban heat. Tea and coffee making facilities, DStv, an en-suite bathroom with shower, a personal electronic wall-safe for guests’ valuables and full Wireless Internet Access (WIFI) are just some of the creature comforts.
The Tropicana is also a diner’s delight. Guests can relax on the terrace of the friendly sidewalk Clippers Cafe Bar and enjoy a variety of coffees and a slice of cake, a light meal or simply a sundowner. The terrace is the ideal place to while away those lazy afternoons or watch an adrenaline pumping sporting event. Dinner is served in the Seven Palms Restaurant (which also serves buffet breakfasts). The Ocean View Bar and Business Centre offers computer access, as well as light snacks and bar service late into the night.
