What a pleasure for us to know that you are considering iNsingizi Lodge & Spa to host your company’s conference. We realize that you will be keen to ensure that your staff relax and are given first rate treatment whilst they are away from their busy office schedules and what better way of doing this than with a conference venue that’s “away from it all?” You will no doubt agree that the success of any conference lies not only in the content but also in the choice of venue, the whole atmosphere of the learning process and knowing that the “behind the scenes“ work is being responsibly and meticulously handled by professionals. This way you, as the organizer, get to relax too and ensure you have a productive and unmatched conference. We have become a venue of choice for companies wanting a personalized, relaxed and efficiently run conference for a few reasons:

Location

iNsingizi Lodge & Spa is nestled in the beautiful craggy hills of Mid Illovo and Eston on a private 400 hectare Estate. It is breathtakingly “away from it all” as you’ll see and yet it is only 45 minutes from Pietermaritzburg, 60 minutes from Durban and 5 or 6 hours drive from Johannesburg.

Venue

We have a dedicated conference centre which comfortably holds 25 people in a U shape or 50 to 60 people in cinema style and there are numerous break away rooms, away from the centre. We offer, as part of our conference package, an overhead projector, flip charts, a whiteboard and a 42 inch TV. Any other equipment can be sourced and hired on your behalf and any special requests taken care of so that the end result is a meaningful and productive conference tailored specifically to your company requirements.

Spa

The added incentive of a de-stressing spa treatment after a conference is often the “cherry on the top“ that ensures a memorable occasion.  It means that everyone arrives back at the office fresh, relaxed and free of tension. Why not investigate our conference and spa package which combines the best of both worlds? Because we specialize in smaller conferences, you and your company are not just numbers to us and we believe the personal touch is important. Dialogue and our relationship with you are vital and the hallmarks of how we work with our clients. We will spend as much time as necessary before hand, exploring your conference needs and how we can accommodate them in our facilities.  And once you’re totally happy with the arrangements, we’ll ask you for a deposit to secure the exclusive use of the conference venue on your chosen date. There are a number of popular options to get you started on what to settle for….
