The Merchant Hotel @ Lake Umuzi forms part of the Lake Umuzi Waterfront with a variety of restaurants and entertainment venues. It’s central position, within 2 km from Sasol Main Gate, the CBD, Casino, the Secunda Sport Stadium, Lilian Ngoyi Convention Centre and Sasol Recreation facilities, makes it an ideal stay over for singles or couples visiting Secunda.
In line with Lake Umuzi’s philosophy, striving for the greenest environment possible, the Merchant uses zero electricity to heat water (solar/gas combination), LED and energy saving lights throughout the building and has recently replaced all old style compressor driven air conditioners with the latest energy saving, inverter technology air conditioning.
Whether it is our warm friendly staff, our large complimentary breakfast, complimentary internet, green energy, close proximity to all Secunda has to offer or our relaxing environment, we are proud and pleased to say that not only our international but also our local guests return time and time again to The Merchant Hotel @ Lake Umuzi.
