The Luxury of being free!

Gulu Private Resort is pleased to announce that we will be opening our doors again on 15 August 2021 and bookings are now welcome! The Resort is secluded and private, accommodating only a small number of guests at a time. We offer En-suite Accommodation, Exclusive Private Functions, Private Conferencing and Private Workshops.

Situated on the banks of the Gulu River, only 15min drive from the East London Airport on your way towards Port Alfred. Gulu Private Resort is the ideal driving distance for a speedy business trip to East London. On your return to the Resort at the end of a long day, you will find a friendly family welcoming you to your temporary home away from home. Unpack your suitcases, put down the laptop, kick off your shoes and enjoy a locally produced craft beer or a lovely glass of Cape Town’s finest wines. Still need to finalise a few emails? No problem! Make yourself at home on the deck outside the restaurant overlooking the Gulu River or find a garden bench, where you can finish off your day's work.

This privately owned family run Resort in East London offers personal attention, clean, cosy accommodation, conference facilities, function option and a beautiful newly built braai area, all with amazing views in a beautiful natural setting.

Our focus is more on corporate, couples and quick weekend getaways, as we currently do not have many amenities on site to keep kids busy during the day. We encourage all our guests to please keep this in mind as well as the fact that we do have animals on the premises, being an out of town Resort.

With all the formalities out of the way, pack your bags and escape for some well-deserved down time on the beautiful rivers and beaches of the Sunshine Coast in the Eastern Cape.


Our accommodation is situated on a hill overlooking the garden and partial river views, within walking distance of the Gulu River. Water activities will soon be available to all guests. Remember to bring your sunglasses, binoculars, cameras and a cooler bag for those relaxing river trips.

We offer 8 en-suite units, sleep a maximum of 2 guests per unit or 1 person per unit. Each unit consists of a Double bed, En-suite - Shower only, TV, Air conditioner, Microwave, Bar fridge, Coffee Station and a Private entrance.

PLEASE NOTE: WIFI is only available in the communal area. Please ensure you bring your own WIFI routers for your stay. We experience load-shedding from time to time, please ensure you have everything you need for these sessions, as we might not have what you need.
