Durban, with its year-round warm weather, is one of South Africa’s favourite holiday destinations.
As a result, there is a need for homeowners and accommodation rental owners, to know of the best beds for sale in Durban, at the best prices.
But specifically because of the humid weather all year round, you have to be careful about which bed you choose, because it’s so easy to overheat, and with some beds, in Durban, you are likely to downright cook.
It’s always vital to do your homework first, and this bed guide should help you decide on what factors to look for pre-purchase, but we need to mention that in Durban specifically, you need beds that come with good ventilation systems, like the Genie bed set, in order to prevent overheating, mould and mites.
Anyhoo, here are 5 of the best retailers in Durban:

More than any other retailer we’ve listed, this warehouse sells a huge variety of premium brands (14 in total), including Genie Beds, Cloud Nine, Rest Assured, Edblo, Genessi, Restonic, Universe Bedding and Simmons.
Their store consultants are trained as sleep pros, so they can also help advise which bed is going to be best for your needs.
