The Umphafa Lounge is the epitome of African design. Inspired by the Zulu culture and the beautiful landscape and seascape of surrounding Kwa-Zulu Natal Province, including a centrepiece known as the ‘Wag ‘n Bietjie’ tree (Wait a While tree) - its distinctive two thorn nodes, each of which face forward and backward, are said to symbolise travellers’ ‘comings and goings’. The symbolic tree is styled from 180 pieces of wood forming a double helix raised above the food and bar area.  

The lounge offers business- and first-class lounge facilities, including TV, free WiFi, workstations, shower suites, a buffet and complimentary drinks including beer and wine, upping its game as the lounge for exclusive VIP services. 

This lounge is managed by a third party operator.
