Beautiful gardens, Opulent accommodation, large villas. Relaxed environment. Good spoil-treat for family. Quad-bike rides were a hit and don't miss the safari-drives. Walks in nature - just do it! Such friendly staff - all lovely people. The kitchen service needs to be streamlined - discerned travellers may not be so relaxed about long waits for food to arrive as we were. Menu could do with re-work. Because of the amazing staff we accepted slip-ups. Kind people and great service can mostly make up for a shortcoming.

Wow. Lejwe La Metsi is truly a royal gem set in a perfect location in Bela Bela. The pristine gardens | pool and entertainment areas are immaculate. The indoor relaxing lounge | private dining and bar area is beautiful and warm with great decor. There are 3 waterfalls which makes Lejwe extra unique and special with little streams and a bridge surrounded by beautiful gardens. Each Villa is luxurious and I had the pleasure of staying in Island Villa which was exquisite. Luxury at its best set in it's own private retreat. Each room is uniquely decorated with opulent decor and artwork. Absolutely exclusive and quintessential. The cuisine was superb. Compliments to Chef Justice. The Boma dinner was spectacular and like no other. What makes Lejwe La Metsi extra special and one of the best 5 star private retreats in the Bela Bela area is the 6 star service. A huge Thank You to Sarita | Obed | Piet | Cady and the rest of the Lejwe Team for making my stay one of the most memorable and amazing experiences. I highly recommend a visit to Lejwe La Metsi as it is truly a unique and royal gem.

A weekend to remember, Lejwe La Metsi epitomizes serenity and luxury. Despite the bad weather, the team went above and beyond to ensure my wife and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary in a memorable way. Sarita and Cady put "customer obsession" at the heart of their approach, always providing a personal touch. Extremely friendly staff, great (tasty) food and opulent villas are the balanced combo to expect when visiting. Will definitely be back to enjoy the amenities under better weather conditions :)

Lejwe La Metsi is the place to be. Their service is out of this world. I would like to thank Caddy and the Team for their excellent job. Morethan 5 Star Treatment. However the road to the resort needs to be attended as it to be attended to as it is not suitable for small cars

The setting was tranquil with lush gardens and surrounded by a natural waterfall and mountain. Accommodation was ultimate luxury; the decor, furniture and space made you want to spend more time indoors. Service and food was exceptional.

The property feature beautiful large and spacious bedrooms and is set in a great location offering superb views. The property is excellent for a small group looking for exclusivity and tranquility as well as offering a variety of areas that can be used for breakaways or special functions. The special dinner prepared for us in the private boma set in the middle of the reserve was an absolute highlight. Staff were friendly, professional and offered all round excellent service. A highly recommended stay in a beautiful space
