About Utopia in Africa Guest Villa

Utopia in Africa Guest Villa has been designed to ensure peace, comfort and privacy for its guests. Set high above the city of Nelspruit, it benefits from a refreshing climate and is nestled into the edge of a nature reserve, overlooking the canopy of its forest. The architect who designed the thatched villa, which is managed by his wife Patricia, created the concept to embrace both light and space, culminating in a sense of integration with the surrounding wildlife, with open views yet private areas to retreat to. Guests have exclusive use of the villa and are invited to lounge in one of the many indoor or outdoor areas. Utopia’s proximity to both the city centre and airport make it a convenient retreat for both the business traveller and the explorer.

The villa is made up of six double bedrooms, most with king-size beds of which three can be turned into twin beds, and en-suite bathrooms. Privacy and comfort is a priority at Utopia. Most of the rooms have their own balconies overlooking the forest below, and a small seating area inside. Each balcony has comfortable seating ensuring you will be able to enjoy private moments with refreshments from your own beverage unit. All bedrooms have been tastefully decorated and named after birds that are commonly found in the area.

The Sunbird and Owl rooms face east, offering views of the sun rising over the hills and nature reserve. The Loerie, Kingfisher and Guinea Fowl rooms face south, which ensures they remain cool even at the height of summer. Our latest room is the Barbet Room which offers views of the nature reserve and city. The Owl, Kingfisher, Barbet and Guinea Fowl rooms are under a high thatched roof, which creates a unique ambience. Single guests are welcome, or guests can rent the whole villa.

Breakfast is served from 07:00 until 09:30 each morning. You can help yourself to a selection of fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal, jam, cheese and bakery items. In addition, we will also serve a cooked breakfast. Should you require a light breakfast outside of these hours, this can be arranged in advance. Breakfast is served in the dining room or in one of the many seating areas outside overlooking the garden and the green forest beyond.

There are a wide variety of restaurants nearby which we would be happy to recommend; you can even order takeaway to be delivered to the villa if you prefer. Alternatively, we can serve you a light supper, but this must be arranged in advance. We have a fully licensed honesty bar, and tea and coffee is available throughout the day from a central area.

The wildlife, birds and plant life are all truly representative of Africa. The 4600 square metres of indigenous garden is at your disposal and has over forty species of mature trees. A wide variety of birds will call to you from dawn to dusk; it is not unusual to see numerous different species around the garden at any given time. Other daytime guests include monkeys, squirrels, the slender and banded mongoose, colourful reptiles and the occasional glimpse of the klipspringer. Our nocturnal visitors are porcupine, spotted genets, bushbabies, frogs, geckos and night jars or owls.

We only stayed here for one night but Patricia was very welcoming. A beautiful guest house with wonderful views over the nature reserve at the rear. Even a swimming pool for guests. The breakfast was also delicious.

Stopped for a 3 night stay during a business trip with 3 colleagues, the guest house was fabulous and would recommend it to anybody. The hospitality shown by the owner Patricia was first class, and all the facilities you could possibly need are there. Patricia even prepared a food hamper for our visit to The Krugrr Park, and the standard and quantity was wonderful and much appreciated as was everything else.
