VMS Resort Refurbishments


Vacation Management Services is excited to advise that refurbishment will be taking place at a lot of the VMS managed resorts this year. Here is a detailed breakdown of what is planned:

Umhlanga Cabanas

Umhlanga Cabanas' final units will be upgraded from July to November 2014. This is the third and final phase of the 3 year major refurbishment which commenced in 2011. To date 37 units have been upgraded leaving 19 which will take effect this year. Every unit has new patio tables and chairs. New balustrades have been installed in the 37 completed units which has immensely enhanced the look and feel of each unit. The current office/reception area will be converted to a guest lounge and WiFi hotspot. The new office/reception area will be below the games room. We are in the process of installing new entrance and exit signs. The deck which has been installed above the games room has certainly added value to the guests' holiday experience at the resort. The superb view from the deck is greatly welcomed and appreciated by all. Whether you intend basking in the sun or just relaxing on a sun lounger, the deck is certainly the place to be.

untide Hotel and Cabanas

Suntide Hotel and Cabanas will be undergoing it's much anticipated refurbishment from July to November 2014. We will be closing down the entire hotel building during the refurbishment to replace tiles, sanware and built-in cupboards in all units. Some units will also be redesigned to maximize the limited space and give the units a modern, clean look. Furthermore, some units will also be converted into bigger units to do away with all studio units in the building. The games room will also be given a facelift.

Suntide Illovo Sands

Suntide Illovo Sands' refurbishments will be finalized this year. The last 9 of the 30 units will be completed between January and March 2014 - just in time for you to enjoy a lovely Easter at your resort! The units were completely stripped and has new sanware, tiles, kitchens and a fresh coat of paint.

Sunshine Bay Beach Club

Sunshine Bay Beach Club will be worked on from July to November 2014 and we're upgrading units 1 - 15 as part of phase 1. Kitchens, bathrooms and lounges are to be modernised and updated. The porches will be enlarged for more comfortable outdoor sitting with some shade cover being installed to allow some protection from rain and sun. New appliances will replace the old ones with the addition of dishwashers in the kitchen. New mattresses will be provided in the bedrooms and bathrooms will be modernized. All of this will allow for more comfortable and enjoyable holidays for our guests.

Formosa Bay Resort

Formosa Bay Resort has been completed. All units have been upgraded and refreshed. The gardens are now up to their true potential and a pleasure to experience, adding to the enjoyment of this resort, thanks to a very hard-working and conscientious team and manager. Shade covers are being added to the units that are exposed to the severe sun, creating a more comfortable outdoor and braai area.
