We just came back from Ku De Ta where we spent another 4 days. I have stayed in 11 different B&Bs in White River and this one by far is the best one. The setting is beautiful, serene and all rooms face a magnificent garden. Our room with the four poster bed was stunning, spacious, with a full bathroom as...

I spent a night a Ku de Ta and loved it. Johan was fabulous, very accommodating. The room was spacious and had all ine needed. Woke up to lots of birds chirping. Centrally situated and secure parking. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation in White River.

Central living areas are spacious and well appointed. Each room equipped with amenities such as fridge and kettle - even milk in the fridge! Would highly recommend this B & B. Central...

What a fantastic venue! The rooms are very spacious and comfortable, tastefully decorated and arranged so that privacy is guaranteed. The garden is without doubt the finest I ever seen and is huge, its like being in a forest. The koi pond if you call it a pond is many, many, yards long and winds its way all around and...

I loved our room, the gardens and water features and the Koi pond circling throughout the establishment. It was mid December just before the rush crowds so we had the place to ourselves. Tanya is an exceptional host, nothing was too much for her and she personally attended to making our breakfast. I am African so to me simple is...

This guesthouse is very basic. No warm water! No hairdryer. Nothing extra. The breakfast however was nice as well as the garden. Centrally located but that is the only positive thing. I wont return or recommend it to anyone. No Dstv only basic channels.

Exceptional service, cleanliness, hospitality. Very comfortable. Not really worth listing services and facilities because the owners of this Establishment will make anything available. We arrived late, requested meals at silly times, were in a big group and were not the easiest guests......and not once were we denied anything. Fabulous.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to KU DE TA, a B&B/Guesthouse in the heart of the South African sub tropical lowveld.We have 7 en suite rooms, all with own outside entrances, most with private, outside courtyards, some with additional outside showers and some with large farm style verandas ideally suited to the Lowveld climate. All bedrooms are individually decorated with solid, bold, Indonesian Teak furniture along minimalist lines to add to the feeling of peace, serenity and tranquility. The koi pond meanders all around the house, in and out of the courtyards, reflects a feeling of calm delight.The spacious lounge with its oversized daybeds is ideal for lazy, relaxing afternoons. We serve a full South African breakfast in the dining room, where all the windows and doors can be stacked away to open the entire space to the front garden. Dinner on request, please book a day before.The lush subtropical garden with it’s rolling lawn, majestic Royal palms, large dappled shade trees, orchids, epiphytic ferns, colourful shrubs and rare plant collectors plants is a cool escape.We're in the country town of White River, amongst all the splendours of the lowveld. Blyde River Canyon, Kruger Park, Historical Barberton and Pilgrims Rest. The Crocodile Gorge or en route to Maputo, or one of the many private Game lodges. Interesting craft shopping at Casterbridge, and dining at some of the finest restaurants. ... more   less
