Matumi Golf Lodge is a 5 Star bed & breakfast establishment, situated in the tranquil and secure environment of the Matumi Golf Estate in Nelspruit in Mpumalanga, province of the Rising Sun. Just 25 km from the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, the Lodge is situated close to the world-renowned Kruger National Park, with the nearest entrance gate to the park being less than one hour’s drive away. Matumi Golf Lodge is the perfect place for quiet weekend breaks, energetic golf trips or a more luxurious, comfortable setting for the travelling professional. The lodge is ideally positioned midway up the 9th fairway of the Nelspruit Golf course (Home of the annual “Jock Open” golf tournament) with magnificent views over the golf course and the Crocodile River Valley. The lodge boasts 7 spacious, luxuriously furnished rooms, tastefully decorated to create a relaxed, sophisticated yet homely atmosphere after a long day for the travelling professional, aspiring golfer or international holidaymaker alike. The rooms are comprised of three different categories, i.e. “Deluxe / Luxury Rooms,” and the “Executive / Honeymoon Suite,” each catering for the individual requirements of residing guests. These differences are mainly attributed to bathroom fixtures and fittings, bed types and overall room size. The reception desk will be pleased to assist you in planning your visits to the numerous tourist attractions the region has to offer. The bar area provides a warm environment in which to relax around the fire stove on cold winter evenings, while during warmer weather, watching the sun set over the fairways from the outside patio is the ideal way to end one’s day. Breakfast at Matumi Golf Lodge is undoubtedly the highlight of the day. The full breakfast is included in the room rate and special dietary requirements will gladly be cater for; these can be stipulated during reservations. Lunch and dinner are available on request.

My partner and I recently spent three nights at Matumi Golf Lodge in Nelspruit. We found the accommodation to be first class with the staff very pleasant and helpful. For anyone visiting Nelspruit, this is the perfect place to stay. It is located within the gated Nelspruit Golf Course, which makes it safe and secure. You can take a leasurely stroll around the golf course or avail yourself of the club house facilities.
Would definitely stay there again.

Lovely location on the golf course, but there was no one available to welcome us and check us in. Access to the pool and outdoors blocked by gates and warning signs about the owners dogs and children. We couldn’t find any one to serve us a pre dinner drink so we went to the golf club. Breakfast had to be pre ordered the night before and was extremely basic. The room was a decent size and the bathroom had a bath and separate shoes. Totally underwhelming experience., very different to our previous visit a few years ago.

I'm sure the experiance at Matumi lodge is good but the attitude I got from the owner was appauling. I booked through Groupon and cancelled 3 weeks in advance, initially I was told I will get a refund from Groupon even though Matumi had already remeeded the voucher from Groupon. After about 3 weeks they tell me they will refund me by the 14th of October which obviously didn't happen. I kept calling them and they kept promising to call mee back which they never did, today the woman who says she's the owner there screamed at me when I asked when can I expect my money back and told me they will not refund me and then hung up on me. Seriously??????

Matumi Lodge is awesome! Friendly staff, delcicious breakfast, everyone is very helpful and accommodating. The rooms are beautiful and the location is peaceful and tranquil. I believe there is no home away from home, but Matumi Lodge comes really close!

Each time I come here I stay in a different room, and the room I'm in at the time becomes my favourite. Every time! It's cosy and warm in winter and cool and calm in winter.

I really enjoy staying here and would highly recommend it.

It is a MUST for golf players coming far from Nelpruit but not ideal for join holiday if not. However, the lodge is very nice and comfortable after hole 1 and whit a great view to the hole 7 and 8 at the back.

They should install alternative energy. There was no electricity on the Sunday from 6am to 9pm. So the day was not enjoyable at all. This means one could not enjoy being at the facility at all on the day.

very nice resort, we do not play golf but enjoyed watching what was going on. Staff are very friendly and helpful. l Would say that you could do with an extra small plate at breakfast for the toast. And at times the grass cutting when you were trying to have a rest went on for quite sometime, but having said that it would not stop us staying there again, John and Howard are very good at making you welcome and o make sure that you have all that you require. Many thanks to all
