Royal Palm Hotel Re-Launches

On Thursday, 01 February 2018, the Royal Palm Hotel, located on Palm Blvd, New Town Centre in Umhlanga Ridge, hosted a prestigious cocktail party to celebrate their official re-launch as an independent hotel. The decision to become independant was based purely on the desire to offer their loyal customer base a more personalised service as an independent hotel.
