눀 – It was a surprise when we finally saw what our friends were tipping us: the place stands for its name. It's a real Utopia. Every little detail so taken care of, from delicate lights all over the place to the soft sheets. And the bathroom with both shower and tub was great for a dip by a forest-looking window. The breakfast was deliciously served outside, in front of the pool, which allowed us to eat as we watched the nature all around. Important to be said: it seems like you are the only ones in the middle of fully-living trees, huge rocks and exquisite birds. Wifi covers the whole building.

This is a truly beautiful guest house in a stunning position with lovely views. Calm but close to all amenities so also very convenient. Our room had everything we could need and a super comfortable bed so we slept really well. Patricia is an interesting and knowledgeable hostess, full of local information and her two dogs are adorable.

Breakfasts are generous although orders seem to sometimes get a little confused. For dinner you need to either order in or prepare your own in which case you might want to mention it earlier in the day so that plates, BBQ etc are all left at your disposal.

We had a lovely time at Utopia, thank you Patricia!

This was the perfect short break away. The venue is more intimate than a large hotel and allows for some downtime without all the crowds. The view is lovely and spacious, the rooms are excellent, the décor is intriguing and unique, and the hosts are helpful and provide jus the right amount of personal interaction. This was a short stop over between two busy work-weeks and it was just what I needed to relax and recharge.

We have had a great pleasure of staying twice at Utopia in Africa, once in 2017 and now again in 2022. What a delightful place! Really feels like a home away from home. Patricia is a wonderful host, always making us feel so welcome and I love listening to the stories she has to share. Even though guest villa is located in the heart of the town, you would be mistaken for thinking you were in the Bush. The location is just perfect close enough to most tourist attractions. The breakfast menu is minimal, but wholesome. The first time we visited we were lucky to see the porcupines and bushbabies. This time round we enjoyed the company of Oreo and Alice. We hope to back again!

This was our second stay at Utopia in Africa and we definitely hope that we can return. It was just as wonderful as we had remembered from staying there as a family in 2016! The rooms are beautiful and so comfortable. It is the perfect stop off when travelling from Johannesburg airport to the Kruger after surviving an international flight. The owners could not have been more welcoming or helpful. We thoroughly recommend Utopia as a wonderful place to stay.

Amazing house with a view on a luxurious nature. Patricia and Hameed are very friendly hosts. They decorated their home with a lot of taste. We had the great chance to share our dinner with them. Extremely nice people. All in Utopia is made to have a great time. We enjoyed every second.

Wonderful, interesting oasis after a safari in most basic conditions. We stayed only one night, but it would have been nice to stay even longer. Interesting details and art all over the house that itself is very interesting architecture. Beautiful view over the city to the mountains. Clean and spacious rooms with a nice shower and a fridge.

A great place to stay. Rooms are lovely. Well appointed, remembering the little things like a hook in the bathroom for clothes. Breakfast was great, a cooked option and plenty of cereals, bread etc. Lovely homemade jam. Staff pleasant and owner was friendly. I highly recommend.
