The group was founded in 1993 when a number of entrepreneurs including investor, and Chief Executive Officer of the SNG Group Mr. Saantha Naidu acquired a holiday apartment building on Durban’s Golden Mile, the Coastlands Durban Hotel and Self Catering apartments. During 2007, the SNG group identified an Area in Musgrave to develop upmarket Residential Apartments, however during the construction phase it was decided to adapt this building according to the requirements of a Hotel, which then opened as a four star graded Hotel in November 2009. One year later, in November 2010 saw the launch of another four star Coastlands Hotel in Umhlanga, followed by luxury apartments in Umdloti and on Kwa-Zulu Natal’s most prestigious Zimbali Golf and lifestyle Estate.
In 2015, Coastlands Hotels and Resorts added the iconic Royal Hotel to its portfolio and is hard at work to restore this ‘old lady’ to its former glory.
