We had to make an impromptu booking for one night in Nelspruit due to car problems and selected La Villa Vita. What a pleasant surprise! Our room was clean and warm with all expected amenities. The staff was friendly and the dinner and breakfast excellent. The value for money was good compared to similarly rated establishments where we stayed in... More

Unfortunately we will not be back to this place. The service was not ideal, cold water showers and not really welcoming treatment. Not worth the price you pay. The atmosphere is cold and uncomfortable. The only saving grace is Benedict and Life who were beyond friendly.

We are putting quite an effort into training our staff plus rewarding good feedback, so it is always pleasing to get positive feedback! We are currently busy with extensions and we hope that our outside breakfast area would be much more to your liking. We must of... More

My boyfriend and I needed to overnight in nelspruit on route to Mozambique,and have heard good things about La Villa Vita. It's a lovely old Tuscan styled home decorated beautifully and the view quite special from the main area. The staff were friendly and helpful! We decided to skip dinner as the kitchen required pre-ordering off the ALC menu (... More

My husband and I and our 10month old daughter went there for a weekend stay. The entrance is really beautiful, I just found the parking a bit odd. The guests booking the more expensive rooms could park next to the entrance and the standard room (which is actually as expensive as other hotels in the area's exec rooms) guests had... More

We had an amazing time in this beautiful Italian inspired hotel. The room was incredible and all of the staff were very friendly. Breakfast was great but dinner could have been missed. We will definitely be back and we highly recommend it.

This trip was a bit of business and a little bit of play! The warm welcome on arrival was just the start excellent service, wonderful food and a lovely comfortable room. Drinks on the terrace next to the pool was another highlight! This will be our accommodation of choice when next visiting the area! Thanks to the team!

We stayed one night on our way to Kruger. The room was acceptable, the staff were friendly and helpful but I would say the food quality, for an establishment at this level was disappointing. I would stay here again, I just wouldn't eat dinner there.

I would come back and recommend this place any time! Staff was friendly, place is awesome, and very restful. Food was good but breakfast buffet could be improved. Has many areas, the bonfire area, the bar lounge, the pool, the patio, all we're great.

We stayed here for only 1 night after spending a wonderful time in Kruger Park on Safari (read my other reviews). After a streanous drive we arrived around 1PM and were immediately ready for check in. Each room has a designated car park, which is a welcome bonus. The property is kind of hidden, at the end of a small... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the middle of Nelspruit surrounded by nature reserves yet only five minutes from the Central Business District is the "The Villa Life". An elegant Tuscan mansion with high ceilings, stone walls and complete facilities appointed with the finest furnishings surrounded by beautiful gardens and with excellent privacy and security. Here weekenders, business & holiday guests enjoy the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere of lodge style living in the middle of the small but vibrant city of Nelspruit.La Villa Vita offers the perfect combination - the ambiance of a guest house with the amenities of a small boutique hotel. We invite you to enjoy the fire place in the Cocktail Lounge, a sun downer on the Bonfire Patio, a business meeting in the small Meeting Room, the gourmet dinners in the Grand Hall Room or a private dinner in the Piano Room - maybe even with your own private pianist. Or just relax under an umbrella at the Pool Garden. All the facilities are for guests' exclusive enjoyment with excellent service all around. Stretch out next to the pool while being served your favourite drink, stroll in the exquisite gardens or go for a leisurely hike in the surrounding nature reserves. Get your pulse racing on the treadmill or with the free weights in the gym. Ask for a private dinner and Jacuzzi on the Sundowner Patio or just kick back and relax on a couch on the Pool Patio - perhaps with a magazine or book from the small library. Like to have your own bush braai experience? Then ask about the Boma a short walk from the main building. Whatever you prefer, we know that our accommodation will evoke both luxury and style and leave you wanting to return soon. ... more   less
