Nelspruit - The Country Boutique Hotel is an intimate little gem in Mpumalanga’s breathtaking lowveld.
It feels personal and the ambience is heady. It is decorated in the French baroque style, with chandeliers, mirrors, sleek materials and stark palettes with bold splashes of colour.
The quality finishes, a sparkling swimming pool and formal colonial gardens are also boutique hallmarks.
The double-volume entrance leads into the cool inner sanctuary, with a lounge and dining room opening on to a wide veranda.
The table d’hôte menu offers a relaxing dining experience, and is accompanied by a magnificent wine selection.
The hotel is about 10 minutes’ drive from the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport and only three and a half hours’ drive from Joburg. It is perfectly situated for day visits to the Kruger National Park, a mere 46km away, and the scenic Panorama Route beckons within an hour’s drive.
The original homestead, set on an avocado farm, has been redesigned into the charming hotel. There are 22 elegantly decorated rooms. Fourteen of them face a courtyard, while the rest have views of the White River Valley.
The owners have achieved an understated elegance in creating this haven for select guests.
l The Country Boutique Hotel, as well as the Ingwenyama Conference & Sports Resort, Mabula Game Lodge and Khaya Ndlovu Manor House are offering Independent Travel Club members a 20 percent discount on standard rates, valid until November 30.
