3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

this really eccentric building looks like a castle on first approach.very steep driveway,then more steps to reception,garage parking available at extra cost.rooms spacious well appointed ,but bathrooms tiny ,no bath and very little shower pressure.breakfast good ,service fine ,overpriced for the accomodation provided,also garage should be included,as parking difficult.!

Room Tip: there is a suite available ,this may have a bath as well.

This establishment just blew me away. An absolute gem. Fantastic setting, beautiful gardens and well appointed. The staff are warm and friendly and no need to go out for dinner. Whether on business or pleasure, this is a must when passing through Nelspruit. As Arnie says, "I'll be back!".
It is more of a boutique hotel than a guest house.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

As two families travelling together, after 4 days on safari, we wanted a base to see the Blyde River Canyon and surrounds. If you decide to stay in Nelspruit, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend La Villa Vita. We had four spacious rooms, in beautiful surroundings, which felt like a home from home. A nice touch was to arrive with garages assigned to us and William there at the bottom of the steps to meet us all. A proper villa with your own space. Tranquil and sense of being "special guests". William and Stieen will take very good care of you. Enjoy.

Room Tip: You can always ask Stieen if you have a preferred menu request.

I am so happy to have found this little gem, a piece of heaven. Excellent accommodation, offering very spacious rooms. After my weeks stay it was very hard to pack up and go home. The food is creative and sensationally divine, Stiaan you are a Maestro in the kitchen! The service is on a par with the best in the world, thank you. Willie I could not fault your service for one moment, always there to assist.
Bed's are turned down every night, slippers placed next to bed, nice fluffy white gowns, if you are looking for a good value hotel look no further!!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In the middle of Nelspruit surrounded by nature reserves yet only five minutes from the Central Business District is the "The Villa Life". An elegant Tuscan mansion with high ceilings, stone walls and complete facilities appointed with the finest furnishings surrounded by beautiful gardens and with excellent privacy and security. Here weekenders, business & holiday guests enjoy the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere of lodge style living in the middle of the small but vibrant city of Nelspruit.La Villa Vita offers the perfect combination - the ambiance of a guest house with the amenities of a small boutique hotel. We invite you to enjoy the fire place in the Cocktail Lounge, a sun downer on the Bonfire Patio, a business meeting in the small Meeting Room, the gourmet dinners in the Grand Hall Room or a private dinner in the Piano Room - maybe even with your own private pianist. Or just relax under an umbrella at the Pool Garden. All the facilities are for guests' exclusive enjoyment with excellent service all around. Stretch out next to the pool while being served your favourite drink, stroll in the exquisite gardens or go for a leisurely hike in the surrounding nature reserves. Get your pulse racing on the treadmill or with the free weights in the gym. Ask for a private dinner and Jacuzzi on the Sundowner Patio or just kick back and relax on a couch on the Pool Patio - perhaps with a magazine or book from the small library. Like to have your own bush braai experience? Then ask about the Boma a short walk from the main building. Whatever you prefer, we know that our accommodation will evoke both luxury and style and leave you wanting to return soon. ... more   less
