Dewy-eyed romantics who fancy a soul-stirring safari jaunt without roughing it under canvas can expect to be blown away by this five-star boutique property in Mpumalanga – the so-called “land of the rising sun” that extends east from Gauteng to Mozambique and Swaziland. As location’s go, it doesn’t get better; not least because you’ll be so close to Kruger National Park – the Big Five winner that’s home to more species of large mammals than any other African game reserve.
There’s just eight incredibly luxurious suites here, all of which feature French boutique-chic decor (crystal chandeliers, lavish fabrics, elegant hand-painted furniture, statement-making wall coverings) as well as king-size beds swathed in high-thread count cottons. A terrace with private Jacuzzi, outdoor day bed, fireplace, flatscreen TV with satellite channels, DVD player, and gorgeous bathroom with bathrobes, slippers and toiletries complete the lovely touches.
Elsewhere, you’ll find an outdoor pool lined with sunloungers, beautiful gardens, and an excellent all-day restaurant for freshly-prepared dishes created with in-season and organic ingredients (many of which are grown on the hotel’s farm). There’s also a deep spa menu for splurge-worthy beauty rituals, all of which can be enjoyed in the privacy of your opulent suite.
How to Get There
On a recent visit to the Timbavati area, we needed to find overnight accomodation in Nelspruit for two nights. We were very fortunate to find this really special place, while close to the Kruger International Mpumlanga Airport, once you have entered the premises you feel totally ensconced in a quiet tranquil environment. The service, food and location are amazing. The folk who look after you could not have been helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We will go back.
Beautiful place near the airport.
Rooms very clean and comfortable.
Different types of food, well cooked
It's the perfect place for a birthday party or wedding. Or a afternoon with the family.
We happened upon this boutique hotel, recommended by our agent. Wow, what a show stopper! Huge room, Louis lV style furniture, wonderful staff and beautiful food. The setting is simply magic with a 200 year old rock fig on the back veranda.
Well worth a visit.
On short notice we were accomodated! The respect for our privacy was noticeable and the private dining particularly good! Staff was on hand but unobstrusive. Overall an above average experience!
Although a bit expensive for us middle class, worth every cent!!!!!!
We had a lovely stay at Belgrace - they were very accommodating for our last minute request. The family room was spacious and comfortable, the jacuzzi was full with hot water when we arrived and the bottle of bubbly was a great extra touch. Being able to dine on our own front porch was a great option, especially with a couple of tired kids. Shame we only had one night
