The Royal Villas, Eswatini
Kruger National Park, South Africa
The Royal Villas combine to create an award-winning hotel, guaranteeing you a luxurious stay in South Africa’s Eswatini, where untouched wilderness meets rich culture and heritage. We love how this resort remains tethered to its African roots and allows you to absorb the Eswatini way of life.
We love how these villas are surrounded by green landscapes and mesmerising views of the Royal Mdzimba Mountains, but also only a ten-minute drive from the bustling capital Mbabane. With this in mind, The Royal Villas offer you the perfect balance between a quiet retreat and cultural adventure.
The 57 secluded villas range from Standard twin rooms to Family Rooms, or for a little extra indulgence, The Sultan Suite will have you feeling like royalty with your own private dining room, lounge, steam room, jacuzzi and immaculate garden, all lavishly decorated. We love the rooms with warm tones and thoughtful touches which create an air of luxury.
When the temperatures begin to soar, take a dip in the glorious pool or top up your tan as you lounge in the serene terrace area. When hunger strikes, Lihawu restaurant offers a charming fine-dining experience, or on warmer nights enjoy the traditional African cuisine in a tropical setting as you feast under the thatched gazebo. To accompany your meal, choose from any of the thousands of wines stored in Sivuni, their premier wine cellar.
Surrounded by African wilderness including mountains, plains and rivers, The Royal Villas are in a prime location for experiences such as game drives, hiking and even white-water rafting. Alternatively, Mbabane is home to an assortment of markets, golf courses and other experiences to immerse you in the rich Swazi culture.
