About Egweni

Egweni, or "Place of the Vaal River" in the indigenous Zulu tongue, is situated in the beautiful town of Parys in South Africa's Free State province. As the name describes, Egweni is located along the banks of the mighty Vaal River, only 110 km south of Johannesburg. With friendly owners, a warm atmosphere and fresh flowers, a warm welcome awaits you. Egweni is the ideal breakaway weekend venue or stopover on business trips.

Egweni is a farm-style, architecturally designed establishment providing stylish accommodation which presently consists of five Double Rooms, two Single Rooms and a Family Unit. Each unit is an individually decorated luxury suite furnished and decorated with your comfort in mind. The tasteful décor, good service and view over the beautiful Vaal River, with its breath taking rapids, creates a relaxed ambience in which you can completely unwind.

The owners of Egweni are presently developing the second phase, which includes four state-of-the-art conference rooms, and a further eight en-suite bedrooms. Future developments in the planning stage include a restaurant, a chapel for intimate weddings, stylish picnic areas, a wellness centre, and various entertainment areas along the river frontage to ultimately create one of the most luxurious and popular resorts along the Vaal River. Whether you visit Parys as a tourist or on business, Egweni offers you a warm welcome and relaxed stay.

Very tired facilities. Clean though and more than adequate if just passing through.

We were absolutely surprised by this wonderful venue.   That is situated right next to the Vaal rivier, we enjoyed the nature as well as the coziness and comfort of our self catering house.  The hosts were really kind and made us feel very comfortable.   Great value for a really affordable weekend stay in a beautiful little SA TOWN
