We needed a place to relax after a long haul flight. This place was perfect and was beautifully decorated inside and out. High ceilings, comfortable bed, lush gardens, great shower and bath installations, excellent service. The highlight of our stay was the dinner - best gourmet meal I've had during our whole trip in South Africa, and arguably trumps most... More

The setting was beautiful and a pleasant surprise as we traveled up the hill, lovely! We had requested adjoining rooms so the two story; 2 bedrooms and 2 baths connected by a stairway, worked out perfectly even though our initial thought was it would be adjoining rooms on same level, but it worked out perfectly. A great place to start... More

Although we only stayed one night, we had a very nice stay. Beautiful room, very comfortable bed. We enjoyed a very nice dinner, cooked to perfection. Enjoyed a light breakfast before we departed for the Kruger National Park. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would love to stay again in the future.

We stayed for 2 nights at this beautiful place, located on a big and green property. Upon arriving we were blown away by the decor, it was like were being zapped into Italy. Very nice deco, greeted with enthousiasm by the lovely receptionist Valerie. The whole place is spacious with lots of privacy for each room. Good sized rooms, we... More

Well, I am not sure if I was somewhere in a villa in the Toscana or the hideaway of a mafia boss in Sicily... how cares the pool was great and tented terrace enjoyable and the food was excellent. So got all the ingredients of a relaxing hideaway from a crazy Maputo or a nice rest after a hectic business... More

The location is amazing with beautiful views & the rooms are stunning and a good size. The service was a little slow and there is room for improvement in that area.The establishment is highly recommended.

My colleague really enjoyed our stay at the Villa. The atmosphere and ambience was incredible. The setting and design lead to a pleasant stay. The only concern we had was some of the waiters need more training - during dinner we had to keep on calling him to our table for service, some were very softly spoken and we couldn't... More

What a wonderful place, we'll definitely return. The little touches really made our stay special - from the welcome drink on arrival, to the bed turn-down whilst we were having dinner. Food was great and the service wonderful - thank you to Jay-Dean and all her staff.

The ambience and setting makes LaVila Vita a pleasure to stay at however small issues arise that cause disappointment and unnecessary debate with staff. The in-room menus and information sheets are not up to date and pricing is always a surprise at the end of ones stay. I love eating at the hotel as heading to a restuarant with kids... More

My husband and I stayed there one night after a Safari on the way to CapeTown. The property is pretty resembling an Italian Villa in South Africa. The room was adequate. Poor lighting. The bathroom was tasteful. The staff was not friendly. We ate dinner at the restaurant on premises. The service was very poor and the food was not... More

Dear mychel53, We are happy that you thought that the room was adequate and that the bathroom was tasteful. We are in a process of adding rooms and hope to grow to a 21 room establishment in the near future. Thank you for the constructive criticism. We believe we generally achieve a five star level of friendliness and service. However,... More
