Nice and cosy, tucked away from the cities. Good if you are looking for some peace and quiet. Food is good. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Hosts are very pleasant and accommodating. Pity the swimming pool is not taken care of though.

What a beautiful setting ! We had a wonderful time at Wellvale. Management most helpful and considerate. Ablutions and communal kitchen always spotlessly clean. Enjoyed the fishing in the river (bass, catfish and tilapia). Road a little rough but we managed fine with ou Wimpi caravan by taking it slowly. We stayed a day longer than our planned three days...

Wellvale Resort is for me, the best break away spot i have been to in years. The fact that there is no cell reception is an absolute bonus to have some proper peace and quiet. (There is Wi-Fi available if you really need to contact somebody.) Our couple of days spent there was total bliss, Jaap and Nienke are incredible... More

It was our fourth stay at Wellvale and it was a delight! The location is special, the lodges clean and luxurious, the hosts loving and caring. And the food is excellent! We chilled at the pool, went fishing, enjoyed the company of Jaap and Nienke and their kids and went on day trips to Ballito and surroundings.

We went for a 2 night romantic couples weekend. Wellvale is truly beautiful situated in a scenic, lush forest. The staff were amazing and so accommodating. Breakfast was beautiful and they packed a picnic basket for us to take down to the river. Tranquility for the soul!

Lovely place,friendly owners, beautiful nature. Eat at restaurant or share kitchen with campers, clean and fully equipped. Please add bar fridge to villas. Open-air shower a winner! Access road is bad.

A very peaceful, quiet, friendly and tranquil environment. The managing couple always ready to assist.A place where you can relax and reflect.There is however a need to expand the kitchen so that there will be no congestion during meal preparations.

Hi. We spent 4 nights at Wellvale caravan park section. Lovely thick green grassy stands with everything close by and nicely laid out. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it. Preferably in the cooler months though. Thank you Jaap and Nienke Dot and Dave Wright

Great place, and great hosts! Thanks Jaap and Nienke, we loved your cooking. Especially your desserts, hmm chocolate mousse. The flowers and birds are amazing, à big variety. We stayed at lodge 6, the lodge with the great view and nice terrace.

When arriving on the Emirates flight at 5pm one doesn't want a long drive, most of it in the dark. We nonetheless wanted a quiet place in the midst of nature, both to get over our flights from Europe and to start seeing African wildlife. Wellvale was just perfect: it's less than an hour from the airport, in a beautiful... More
