We've stayed in a King room for 4 days and can definitely recommend this place. The décor throughout is classy but also homely and comfortable. The views on the nature reserve below from room balconies and the breakfast deck are beautiful, even now with drought. We heard so many birds and saw a Purple Crested Lourie twice. We also saw...

Just spent the night at this wonderful place after a long day s drive from Mozambique and we absolutely loved it!

We only had a few hours to enjoy this wonderful inn, but were so impressed we didn't ever want to leave! This is a gorgeous, art and artifact-filled home with fabulous rooms, wonderful food and kind, accommodating owners and staff. I'd love to return some day!

Second time around and still amazing. We stayed in the 'Sunbird' room with beatiful views from our deck over Nelspruit from Sonbeheuwel. Amazing restaurants only 5 minutes away. 5 star luxury and hospitality.

We had another fantastic stay at Utopia. We stayed in this place 3 years ago, loved it then, and loved it now. It is an absolutely stunning location, overlooking a beautiful forest reserve. At night, the bush babies, genet cats, and porcupines all come around and can be photographed. The entire house is beautifully decorated with local artwork. All of...
