Home // Summer Sun on the South Coast – The Blue Marlin Hotel, Scottsburgh

Nestled in sun-tropical gardens with a sparkling pool and an ocean view to take your breath away, the Blue Marlin is one of those excellent family hotels where guests intermingle and return year after year. Features also include a swimming pool, games room and playground. With a history spanning 60 years, holidaymakers have been making cherished memories at The Blue Marlin for decades. Location is everything at The Blue Marlin Hotel. It doesn’t get much better than having the ocean on your doorstep! Survey the spectacular surf as you sit perfectly positioned at the peak of the charming seaside town of Scottburgh, just 45 minutes from Durban, along the picturesque KwaZulu Natal South Coast. With 122 rooms and exquisite sea views, The Blue Marlin offers modern 3 star standard 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. This favourite South Coast family holiday resort has also undergone a complete refurbishment, now offering affordable modern accommodation with the same heart and soul of yesteryear. 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.
