This is simply my favourite guest house when I visit Nelspruit. The rooms are stunning, the beds are comfortable and the rooms are tranquil and private. Breakfast or afternoon coffee on the deck is wonderful especially with the breathtaking view of nature!

We stayed in the guineafowl room nr5. Really a treat. Very large and gorgeous room, with a roomy bathroom with a tub that fits two easily. The rest of the house is very tastfully decorated and has the feel of a warm home. Stay here if you are looking for a nice getaway from the crowded touristic places around krugerpark.... More

Unfortunately I have to agree with Marylene's review: not my Utopia either. And I do get a bit of a schock when I read other reviews saying that the guest house overlooks the Kruger NP...sorry, but anyone who knows South Africa is aware of the fact that the Kruger Park is not in Nelspruit! We also chose Utopia because of... More

Beautiful place with fantastic view. We liked that one evening we could buy dinner and all the ten guests sat together at one big table. Made contact with other guests which was valuable. I would recomend to ask for a room with a view.

it will be hard to explain the charm and the feel of this place. i had no idea what to expect since my agent who booked my safari travel put us up here. historically my BnB experience is not good. i am a high-end traveler for vacation (and a low budget work traveler so i know the range). anyway this...

Have stayed here numerous times and it never let's me down. Great location, great setting for breakfast, didn't want to leave for work. Host and her daughter were great. Will definitely be back when I next visit nelspruit.

Utopia in Africa is lovely. It is set in a very nice neighborhood in Nelspruit bordering a nature preserve so we were able to view Bushbabies and porcupines after dark when they came up below the deck. The room was large and very comfortable but what sets this home apart are the owners, Patricia and Hameed who were so warm... More

I booked this hotel because of the excellent reviews I had read. However, I was not as enthusiastic as most reviewers. I found it overrated in absolute terms and in comparison with similar places in Nelspruit. The location is definitely a plus and so is the architectural design of the building. But I did not like the outside breakfast area... More

Best shower we had during our holiday. We slept in the Kings room and the kids slept on a sleeper couch, which was great. The beds are a little short for long people. Also internet was very good. A variety of coffee and tea is included. The owners and staff are very friendly. The whole guesthouse had nice and different... More

the couple is amazing, very friendly, Villa Utopia a stylish, interesting place to stay, lovely view on montains and forests, among nature, but nearby the centre of Nelspruit, clean and big rooms, phantastic breakfast on the terasse of the Utopia, really a good recommendation to stay. visits of Krueger National Parc or city of Nelspruit.
