We just recently got married at Likweti, and between us and the guests took over all 10 chalets. Where to start? In the run up to our arrival Adri was absolutely brilliant with all of her preparation and planning, so that when we actually arrived the day before the wedding we had absolutely no stresses at all! We had such a wonderful welcome, we immediately felt at home and knew that we would be looked after.
The suites are GORGEOUS! They are absolutely stunning - spacious and incredibly well decorated. And the private plunge pool and outdoor shower were amazing - we were very sorry that we didn't stay for a couple more days after the wedding just to enjoy the accommodation and location!
Adri recommended the DJ, minister, traditional African dancers and looked after all of the food and drink for our stay (the food was excellent by the way), and even when an extra guest turned up unexpectedly Adri and the team sorted everything out with minimum stress. We couldn't have been in better hands, and at every stage knew that we were being extremely well looked after.
We cannot recommend Likweti enough as a wedding venue (we got married under a giant fig tree and it couldn't have been more special), or similarly as a honeymoon destination or even luxury retreat. The prices are very reasonable for the service and level of accommodation you receive, and Matt and I are very much hoping to come back next year for our first anniversary. Make sure you stay for at least 3 nights though, if you stay for less you will regret it!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- "Likweti" is the SiSwati word for "morning star", which symbolises new beginnings. The Private Reserve includes a four-star lodge and an estate. Those in the know say that location is everything. We tend to agree. But we also believe in a return to nature and in creating a sustainable lifestyle. This 2 000-hectare unique Lowveld paradise is located a mere 10 minutes' drive from the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport(KMIA), just 11 minutes from White River and only 20 minutes from Nelspruit. Nearby attractions include the world famous Kruger National Park, Blyde River Canyon and even the sunny beaches of Mozambique. Swaziland, the smallest country in the Southern hemisphere, is also within reach. Likweti lies both above and below the mist belts of the distant Swazi mountain escarpment in Mpumalanga, South Africa. Giraffe, nyala and warthog families wander freely on the property. Bird life abounds, with over 300 species calling the reserve home - a birdwatcher's paradise. Feathered residents include the elusive African Finfoot. Nocturnal sightings of bush baby, porcupine, serval and genet complete this tranquil bush experience. Accommodation at Likweti Lodge has been designed with maximum privacy and indulgent comfort top-of-mind ensuring that guests will enjoy their tranquil bush experience in the height of 4-star comfort. ... more less
