Experience Durban’s Point Waterfront from the Comfort of the Docklands Hotel

Docklands Hotel in Durban

I remember a time when Durban’s Point Road area was a frightening underworld with a dubious future.  As a teenager in the 90’s we were warned by our parents and our friends’ parents of the acute danger associated with visiting a certain well-known nightclub in the Point Road area. Needless to say, these warnings often went unheeded and most of us made it through school and the start of our working lives unscathed.

Durban Point Waterfront

Durban’s Point Rd region – Then & Now

Fast forward to 2011 and times have changed dramatically. The Durban Docks have followed in the footsteps of city improvement districts in Cape Town (Sea Point, Woodstock) and Johannesburg (Newtown). By building on its unique postindustrial, Art Deco foundation; Durban has developed one of South Africa’s most sought after neighbourhoods in the Point. Now accessed via Mahatma Gandhi Rd (previously Point Rd), the area is a bustling up and coming district of trendy sidewalk cafes, upmarket apartments and hotels and romantic canals.
