Utopia is in a lovely neighborhood atop the ridge. Overall it is really great—decor, staff, food, rooms. One area for improvement is the doors to the rooms are like typical household bedroom doors (very lightweight and thus noise travels easily) vs. insulated sound-proof doors. I could hear everything in the hallway outside my room and those entering the room across... More

We stayed here at the beginning of May after a very long flight and drive. We had a very warm welcome and the bed & breakfast looked very clean, beautiful and organized. The view from the room and balcony was stunning and was also very relaxing. Patricia was a very good hostess and organized a really nice and pleasant dinner.... More

We chose Nelspruit as a middle stopover to Kruger national park. Nelspruit is very peaceful and beautiful medium size city and we loved our stay at 'Utopia in Africa'. It is located at a hill with a magnificent view. Neighbor area is safe and it is good to go out for a morning walk around. Staffs were very hospitable and... More

We stayed in Utopia in Africa for 2 nights. This was a very pleasant experience. All rooms in the house, including the veranda were cozy, very well decorated with attention for details. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. They made us feel at home. We strongly recommand with no hesitation.

We stayed 2 nights in this beautiful guesthouse in the hills above Nelspruit! Tastefully decorated with extremely comfortable, large room and bathroom! To eat breakfast out on the verandah is such a treat! We interacted with other guests over a very good candlelit dinner! We will most certainly be back! At the risk of sounding shallow, we did miss a... More

We picked this lodge for one night as a place for stopover on our way to Kruger National Park. We arrived late from Johannesburg on a rainy night and much later than was expected but we were still warmly welcomed. The rooms are big and really comfortable. The rooms we had were overlooking the woods. You could easily think there... More

Property is absolutely lovely and service is good. Would definitely recommend to people. The only thing i didn't like was that the owners had the tv up very loud in the morning which woke me up. Dinner wasn't available when we arrived but they have a service called Mr Delivery where you order from local eateries then they deliver to... More

We stayed in Utopia on many occasions. Although in the centre of Nelspruit, it is overlooking a green valley. The rooms, we stayed in, were very cosy with a sense for detail: an outside terrace, nicely decorated, stylish furniture, great bathrooms, nice toiletries and generous towels. The breakfast is excellent. The hosts are helpful and make you feel at home... More

This is a very cool B&B in an attractive neighbourhood. We were 2 couples and each room was very different. The whole place is so full of character and the owners and staff just wonderful. We had a very nice dinner with them and 4 other guests outdoors on the deck with great conversation during a beautiful evening. The views... More
