Premier Hotel Sani Pass (Southern Drakensberg)

Premier Hotel Sani Pass is currently closed for refurbishment and will reopen February 2017.

The hotel is nestled at the foot of the Pass on the banks of the Mkhomazana River with its fresh water direct from the Drakensberg Mountains.

Surrounded by mountains, the hotel is the base for 4X4 excursions up the Sani Pass which can be reserved for guests at our reception desk.

Nestled in the foothills of the Drakensberg at the foot of the Sani Pass, the hotel is 19km from Underberg. A new tarred road is being built from the Lesotho border post via the Katse & Mohali dams to Maseru and the South African border post to Ladybrandt in the Free State.


The district is renowned for its natural beauty. Guests can enjoy fishing as well as golfing, hiking, horse-riding, tennis, bowls and squash at Premier Hotel Sani Pass.
