Located on our family run sugar cane farm, Shalwyn, in Tala Valley , Kwa-Zulu Natal. Situated 20 minutes from Pietermaritzburg, 45 minutes from Durban, pure country bliss is not out of reach.
Our venue is an old shed transformed and restored to an elegantly rustic taste. Handmade driftwood chandeliers lower the high ceilings and cast romantic hues against the block walls. Large wooden doors opened wide afford breathtaking views of the valley. The reception room emits character & atmosphere that will have a lasting impression on your guests.
Enjoy a drink out on the sprawling deck while the African sun sinks and disappears behind the hills. During the colder months you and your guests can gather round roaring log fires and admire the endless starry skies.
The main attraction to Shalwyn is our vast open space and sweeping views, engulfed in quietude, you quickly forget you are not far from the city. We can comfortably seat from 50 to 300+ guests at round tables, with ample space for dance floors and entertainment. We offer an exclusive service with our emphasis on creating a personalised and memorable setting just for your special occasion.
We pride ourselves on our excellent and convenient bar facilities. Allow the friendly staff to serve you an ice cold beverage inside the venue under the thatch lapa or outside on the deck. The Oregon and slate counter add to the authentic country feel, taking you far away from the city hustle.
Off premises catering is sourced and pre arranged by Shalwyn with Hamblins Catering Services. Hamblins has been running successfully for many years and we have entrusted them to uphold our excellent name and keep our guests 100% satisfied with their creative menus and excellent cuisine.
