5 Star Hotel in Port Elizabeth The Boardwalk

One cannot resist the lure of Africa.

- Rudyard Kipling

The latest addition to the exclusive SunLux Collection and one of the top 5-star hotels in Port Elizabeth, The Boardwalk stands as an elegant gateway to the Friendly City and the world-famous Garden Route, and invites you to explore Africa's best experiences in the wildlife-rich Eastern Cape. Embark on an African soul journey from the Port Elizabeth beachfront through the historical coastal City and further afield to the Addo Elephant Park.

With a colourful sea-faring history dating back to the 15th century, the Friendly City retains its air of Victorian elegance, softly tempered by the casual coastal atmosphere. This unique combination of grace and charm is perfectly mirrored in the classic Victorian white-and-red façades, Tivoli-styled gardens and debonair 5-star interior of The Boardwalk hotel on the Port Elizabeth beachfront.
