Excellent. If you want to feel like a Queen, this is the hotel to visit. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. The restaurant is very up to the standard but the waitresses need to smile a bit. I recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to take a little break from the city.

We really enjoyed our stay at Thaba Eco Hotel. It was a nice surprise that one didn't have to travel out of Joburg to enjoy such service, tranquility & serenity, all wrapped up in one. Will definitely keep the establishment in mind / in our plans for future getaways.

A fantastic evening thanks to the Staff of Thaba. Nothing was too much trouble to organize and even change, at the last minute. A superb venue for a Matric Dance, due to the location of the facilities, providing a beautiful and safe (contained) environment for a memorable occasion. The girls has a wonderful evening and many memories were made. Thank... More

Surrounded by the tranquil and picturesque Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve, one finds a piece of Highveld Heaven in the form of the impressive Thaba Eco Hotel. A decade of passion has resulted in brand renowned for world class customer service. Thaba Eco Hotel has recently been voted as the BEST 4 Star hotel in Gauteng at the Lilizela Tourism Awards, and is now also a registered FAIR TRADE tourism certified business.

With the luxury, executive and Bushveld suites, guests have a variety of room types to choose from. As part of their Green Policy, Thaba Eco Hotel has incorporated several creative and positive measures to contribute to the sustainability of both the area and the planet as a whole. All hotel rooms have been designed with the environment in mind. Colours of the exterior of the buildings represents the stone and tree bark to reduce visual impact, and only 50% of the Bushveld suites floor plan touches the ground to ensure the maximum protection of the fauna and flora. Thaba Eco Hotel also has a variety of stunning venues for weddings, conferences and other functions, such as the Marquee, Lobola and Tswana Banquet Halls. Leisure activities include the Sinzinani Day Spa, Meditation Trail, Guided Hiking Trails and the popular Thaba Lions Educational Centre.
