About Us

We, Vernon and Cindy Malyon, took over Spotted Grunter Resort on 1 August 2016.

Since taking ownership we have carried out major renovations, added more rooms and made the guests stay more comfortable by adding aircons and larger TV’s to each room. While Vernon takes care of the maintenance and development of the resort, Cindy handles the day to day running by keeping a beady on housekeeping, kitchen, bar and reception.

Cindy is also a qualified Yoga Instructor and holds classes for guests as and when the need arises. Vernon handles the Fishing Charters and the Ocean Viewing Trips out to sea. He has many years fishing experience and is always available in the Fishing Tackle Shop to offer advice.

The Spotted Grunter started off as a farm and developed into a camping ground before the rooms were constructed to form the Resort. It is named after the Spotted Grunter, a fish which has its home in the mighty Umzimvubu River. Vernon can also be found in the Anglers Arms on occasion, strumming his guitar and belting out popular tunes.

Spotted Grunter Resort is pet friendly. You are welcome to bring your pets along to stay with you, please bear in mind that we have pet ducks so it is advisable to keep your pet on a leash when outside your cabin.
