Just had a single night here, but it was well worth it. The place give you that wonderful secluded feeling usually only found deep in the bushveld, when in fact it's well situated within the greater Johannesburg area. I highly recommend the place and will definitely be swinging by again when I get the opportunity.

A beautiful resort set in a national park, removed from the hub hub yet close to the urban center. We stayed in Joburg overnight as a layover between flights and went there instead of an airport hotel. It was well worth it even with the half hour drive from the airport. The food in the restaurant was very good!

I spent a night at the hotel to attend a business meeting. Staff at the hotel were unbelievably pleasant and helpful. The hotel has an unstable phone line and internet connection but the staff go out of their way to make up for any hiccups. The conference venue is excellent and hosted us well. Overall a lovely experience.

I was a day visitor at the hotel on the 4th November 2016 and I must say, I liked the nature and mountain views the place offers. Very quiet, away from the city buzz and hype. Their Sinzinani Spa is by far the best I have ever visited; friendly and warm, welcoming staff from the minute you step into the...

One wouldn't think it possible to find such tranquil surroundings in a city like Johannesburg. But here you have it. Our room was gigantic compared to most other hotels. And the view was just amazing, with a sunset to match. The rooms are only accessible by golf arts, which is great - no car sound systems disrupting your break away....

I really enjoyed my stay at the Hotel and also did not feel like we were in Johannesburg. The rooms feels were clean and the bedding was the best. Although only stayed there for a day but will ensure that I come with my family in the next meeting

We stayed in a deluxe suite and were pleased with the accommodation but feel the restaurant was not 4 star. Breakfast was disappointing as there was no fruit or cereals and we waited of long time for our food even though there was only one other table with guests. We asked for brown bread toast, they gave us white bread!

Thaba Eco Hotel has recently been voted as the BEST 4 Star hotel in Gauteng at the Lilizela Tourism Awards, and is now also a registered FAIR TRADE tourism certified business.
