I visited Utopia Village with my son. Our experience there has spoiled him for life and I had to explain to him after that their service is unique and he may never experience such outstanding service again. Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff and owner Paul sets an amazing example by personally ensuring that guests have... More

This completely renewed resort is owner managed and they personally lead staff by example to treat guests as though they were friends visiting their home. Chrisna and Paul Avenant purchased this resort in May 2014, closed it for complete overhaul Sep - Nov 2014, and now have a beautiful modern facility. We have been to upscale resorts around the world,... More

The executive summary is that this is an excellent resort and my husband and I would stay here again. The longer review includes information that I search for when I conduct research or information that I think would be pertinent to others: If you have food sensitivities or special dietary requests, Utopia Village accommodates this very well. I am gluten... More
