This place was a gem. The owners are so kind and provide a fabulous breakfast atop a deck that overlooks lush green hills. We stayed there for one night as a stop between travel destinations and we couldn't have asked for more! Highly recommend.

This cozy guesthouse and its wonderful hosts have made our family feel home in Nelspruit. We were welcomed with tea or coffee and offered solutions for dinner. The house is amazing with a nice terrace, pool and good view. The room is large with a great bathroom with spa and shower. The Internet works perfectly for those who need to...

We stayed here for a week of relaxation before setting off on safari in Kruger National Park. Patricia and Hameed are the most perfect hosts. We felt welcome right from our arrival and throughout our stay. Their whole style is one of creating a feeling of relaxation for their guests. Accommodation is comfortable with a pleasing informal style of furnishings....

Fantastic place, lovely decor and great hosts. The breakfast was great and the rooms large and clean. We had booked to stay 2 nights but we did leave after the first due to having a very active toddler with us! The balconies are great for adults but a little concerning if you have children. The open pool was an issue...

My husband and I stayed at Utopia in Africa for 3 nights just before Christmas 2014. The hotel is a little hard to find as it is an actual house that has been converted into a beautiful guest house with individual rooms. The house is located within a residential area so a car is a must if you wish to...

Every time I visit this Guest House in Nelspruit, I leave inspired, energized and rejuvenated. The rooms are awesome and cater for all your needs and requirements. The staff are obliging, friendly and to be honest you feel like you are part of the family. Spectacular pool area and view,,, cannot wait to visit again!

This B & B rates beyond the traditional 5 stars; the architecture and artwork are great, the accommodations spacious and totally comfortable. Over the top are Patricia and her super-competent daughter Claire. Thank you, thank you for taking charge of re-arranging our travel plans. Everything worked out beautifully. We felt truly cared for and worried over. And oh, the superb...

We bookended our journey with stays at UIA. It was a delightful experience. There was a warm welcome from the owners and loved our rooms, with great balconies overlooking the bush. The place is full of character with high thatched roofs and gigantic bath tubs. The beds were the best we stayed in, super comfy. I should also mention the...

We stayed at Utopia for one night as a stop-over between destinations so we probably didn't get the full experience. The lodge and rooms were absolutely beautiful. The owner was very nice but I would have preferred a better vegetarian option (no one asked and I couldn't eat the majority of what was served) and some assistance with lugging our...

We stayed at "Utopia in Africa" for six nights and had a fabulous experience. When we walked in, we were very impressed by the beautiful decor throughout the property, and the warm welcome by the owners Patricia and Hameed. The view from the hotel is nothing short of spectacular, overlooking a beautiful green valley with rolling hills. We saw countless...
