Breakfast on the deck is really lovely, with a wide range of birds and a great view. The rooms are pretty and spacious - the bathroom could be more private but aside from that, we enjoyed our stay and appreciated the warm hospitality.

Stayed one night. Fairly quiet area so would need a car. Small and secure car park. Lovely setting. Beautiful views and nice breakfast area by the swimming pool. Very nice large room and bathroom with a balcony. Owner very helpful. Would recommend.

This is an amazing place. We stayed there for 2 nights. On the first night, the owner Patricia invited us to watch her feed the animals in the nature reserve behind the guest house. She put out food and we watched from the balcony as gentes, bush babies and porcupines came to eat, almost within touching distance. The rooms were... More

We had the pleasure of staying for one night and we had three rooms -- all very spatious, very clean and highly comfortable. Despite its somewhat confined space, our three kids (boys aged 7, 8 and 10) enjoyed themselves and were taken to watch the feeding of the spotted genet as well as to see the bushbabies. We came too... More

Stayed here with friends and had an absolutely fabulous time. Would recommend Utopia highly. I have visited Nelspuit many times before but this is my best experience of accommodation in the area. Our room was quiet, tastefully decorated and the staff were excellent. I would visit again should I ever be in this part of Africa on another occasion.

My husband was looking for a place to stay as a personal retreat, where he could just relax and basically be around no one...he found it! On Sunday, I met him at church and then headed over just to check it out. I made my reservation for the following weekend! Patricia, the owner, had told me I could come anytime... More

This place was a gem. The owners are so kind and provide a fabulous breakfast atop a deck that overlooks lush green hills. We stayed there for one night as a stop between travel destinations and we couldn't have asked for more! Highly recommend.

This cozy guesthouse and its wonderful hosts have made our family feel home in Nelspruit. We were welcomed with tea or coffee and offered solutions for dinner. The house is amazing with a nice terrace, pool and good view. The room is large with a great bathroom with spa and shower. The Internet works perfectly for those who need to... More
