The Only Business We Love More Than Our Business, Is Your Business

Conferences & Events On Durban Beachfront

At Southern Sun Elangeni & Maharani we take absolute pride in our business. African hospitality that exceeds international expectations makes us who we are. But if you are here on business then we promise to love your business just as much as we love ours.

We put business first so whether you need a venue with the best views in Durban or you need a place for 500 hundred conference delegates to sleep, this is a hotel that delivers.

Our business experiences are customised to your needs – whether your event stretches over a few days, or a few hours and whether your group is just five or five hundred.

15 conference venues, 734 bedrooms and a team of banqueting and event organisers, ensures Southern Sun Elangeni & Maharani is uniquely able to facilitate any event. From product launches to wedding celebrations, executive board meetings to birthday bashes, there is a space for you at Southern Sun Elangeni & Maharani.

Not only will we ensure the setup is as you require it, our technical experts will be on hand to make sure your event sounds and looks great.

Catering to Your Business

Southern Sun Elangeni & Maharani’s Executive Chef oversees all your catering requirements. Take your event beyond break-time coffee and biscuits with an innovative and customized menu. Whatever dietary requirements, themed menus, or unique catering requests you have, our team brings it to the table.
