|When Constantine Vladykin built a holiday home in Umhlanga he named it in his native Russian tongue. Teremok means “little hideaway” - a name that was applicable upon its conversion into a boutique lodge for business executives and the well-heeled in 2003. |
Its meticulous transformation has been well documented and, despite its proximity to the beach and accessibility to amenities, it’s an oasis of serenity. Spacious rooms each boast their own balcony offering breathtaking sea views or a vantage point of the park-like garden. Hands-on owners ensure that personalised service and attention to detail are mandatory in this five star establishment.
Each individually decorated room offers extra length beds (twin or king size), handcrafted ceiling fans, airconditioning and, while most have a separate entrance, each has its own private balcony. The open plan bathrooms have a large shower, freestanding bath, double basins and a separate toilet and bidet. Extras include a home entertainment system with DVD player (with a library of DVDs available) and flat screen TV as well as free ADSL internet connection.
Additional facilities include wellness centre that includes an extensively equipped gym and a therapy room and a pool.
Situated at 49 Marine Drive in Umhlanga, Teremok is ideally located just 1km from Umhlanga Rocks village, 4km from the Umhlanga and La Lucia Ridge business area, 20km from Durban central and 36km from Durban International Airport.
