Thaba Eco Hotel is such a beautiful hidden gem just south of Johannesburg. The staff are all very friendly and the rooms extremely beautiful and clean. Highly recommend this hotel if you are planning a few days in JHB area. Close to city centre but in nature. The Kraal Kombuis restaurant serves quality food and wonderful options. Will be back...

I visited Thaba ya Batswana for a two-day conference and found the facilities and overall approach to conferencing refreshing. The executive boardroom is well equipped and luxurious; with snacks and coffee provided on a seemingly ongoing basis. They also managed to keep the water pitchers filled which can sonetimes be a challenge at full-day conferences. The accommodation was well appointed... More

I spent this weekend at the Thaba Eco Hotel and oh, what a joy it was. From the warm and sincere welcome at Reception (thanks Marie and Busi) to the gorgeous bedroom and magnificent bathroom (with skylight!). From the exquisite 90-minute Signature Massage at Sinzanani Spa (thanks Rebone) to the delightful meditation trail and welcoming swimming pool. From the friendly... More

I never knew that this place existed but set in a beautiful indigenous garden with beautiful views of lush green hills, it was a very pleasant surprise! And you even catch a glimpse of the Jozi's CBD every now and again - but you would never know that you were so close the heart of Africa's economic powerhouse. The rooms... More

Just outside Jo'burg and business districts Sandton at 45 minutes you find this oasis at Klipriviersberg. Must say above expectations: great venue for all sorts. We stayed there with a group for a business conference, but can imagine suitable venue for social evens e.g. wedding etc. as well. Only caveat is noisy aircon in central conference hall (Lobola), which they... More

The restaurant service was the lowest point. The food was great, but service was very poor. we ordered food on our table and it came 1h10min later. it took about 15min for someone to offer us a drink from the time i sat down. i assume that the reason you are missing the 5th star is because of the restaurant...
