Blue Marlin Hotel

The Blue Marlin Hotel is well known and loved by all those who have passed through its doors during its colourful 60-year history.

We have recently had a refreshing revamp to improve our guest experience, offering modern touches while preserving the unique ‘Marlin’ personality that remains in the hearts of so many of our guests, who return regularly to our shores.

With 122 rooms and exquisite sea views, The Blue Marlin offers comfortable accommodation and a range of facilities to suit your needs. Each space is modern, comfortable and varied in amenities according to your needs, from the outside pool overlooking the surf below to tasty treats served at our Lighthouse Restaurant.

Stay in the heart of the charming South Coast town of Scottburgh, within walking distance from bars, restaurants and shops, and only an hour’s drive from Durban.

Dip more than your toes in the Indian Ocean and embark on an incredible diving expedition to the world-famous Aliwal Shoal, a short boat ride away and easily organised by our in-house dive shop.

Tee off in paradise, with an array of world-class golf courses within close proximity of the hotel, or rejuvenate and revitalise at our in-house spa.

You can be as busy or as relaxed as you wish when staying at The Blue Marlin, but before you tackle the day ahead and explore the South Coast, there’s nothing better than a cuppa and hearty, homely breakfast to get you in the right mood.
