On a private game reserve bordering the Kruger National Park lies the conquering queen of African luxury experiences. This Royal majesty is set against the silhouetted back drop of the towering Drakensberg Mountains. Yet despite this awe inspiring setting it is the Royal Malewane’s lavish attention to detail in every aspect which belies belief and which has earned this regal property its plethora of “World’s Best” awards over the past decade.
Luxury beyond compare
The Royal Malewane reserve is set in the Mpumulanga lowveld and is well-known for its consistently incredible game viewing. Royal Malewane is the undoubted icon of extravagant safari destinations and offers its guests every modern-day comfort and convenience while at the same time embracing the wild heart of Africa. Royal Malewane prides itself in sharing an exclusive safari experience beyond compare with its heightened attentiveness to ultimate privacy, personalised hospitality and incredible wildlife sightings. The inclusion of the Royal Malewane Bush Spa, world-renowned for its striking setting and oasis of treatments, crowns the safari and all round experience with sheer indulgent pleasure.
Royal Malewane hosts a maximum of 20 guests insuring a continuously intimate experience. There is an option of either one of six luxury suites for couples, or for even more privacy and seclusion, one of two four-sleeper Royal Suites.
The air-conditioned luxury suites are an opulent hideaway from the heat of the bushveld yet display unparalleled views of wild spaces beyond. Each suite is generously spacious with a private outside wooden deck and rim-flow pool. If you are in luck, a small herd of elephant might drink even from the pool waters as you take an afternoon plunge. Classic mahogany furnishings compliment the refined extravaganza of Persian carpets and canopied king-size bed while indoor and outdoor showers leave you rejuvenated and refreshed.
The Royal suites exemplify the definition of style and splendour. An enormous outside deck and sparkling pool give even four guests the freedom to cherish their solitude, and the inside living areas tell stories of colonial times gone by through treasured antiques and over-sized chandeliers.
Both the Luxury suites and the Royal suites speak to guests seeking a high-end luxury retreat.
