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

We stayed here for a week of relaxation before setting off on safari in Kruger National Park. Patricia and Hameed are the most perfect hosts. We felt welcome right from our arrival and throughout our stay. Their whole style is one of creating a feeling of relaxation for their guests. Accommodation is comfortable with a pleasing informal style of furnishings.... More

Fantastic place, lovely decor and great hosts. The breakfast was great and the rooms large and clean. We had booked to stay 2 nights but we did leave after the first due to having a very active toddler with us! The balconies are great for adults but a little concerning if you have children. The open pool was an issue... More

My husband and I stayed at Utopia in Africa for 3 nights just before Christmas 2014. The hotel is a little hard to find as it is an actual house that has been converted into a beautiful guest house with individual rooms. The house is located within a residential area so a car is a must if you wish to... More

Every time I visit this Guest House in Nelspruit, I leave inspired, energized and rejuvenated. The rooms are awesome and cater for all your needs and requirements. The staff are obliging, friendly and to be honest you feel like you are part of the family. Spectacular pool area and view,,, cannot wait to visit again!
