How to Choose a Boutique Hotel in South Africa

Are you planning on visiting South Africa soon? South Africa is a place steeped in history, culture, and picturesque views. Visiting the country is an experience you will never forget. Why not make your trip extra special by staying in a boutique hotel while you’re there?

If you’re currently planning your trip, you may be looking at places to stay. Let me give you some help. Take a look at these top tips for creating the perfect experience in South Africa.

What Will You Need?

It could depend heavily on whether your trip is for business or leisure, but most people will want good hotel features while travelling. Consider the features you need or want. For instance, you may want to look for a hotel in South Africa that offers personalised service, an onsite spa, restaurant facilities, free WiFi and air conditioning during your stay.

Similarly, you’ll want to think about whether you want to be near tourist attractions or if it’s easier for you to be near to something else, e.g. a workplace or someone you know in the area. Figuring out what you’re going to need during your stay will help you decide where to lay your head each night.


It’s true what they say; you get what you pay for. If you’re just looking for somewhere to sleep, you can expect to pay middle-of-the-road prices for a middle-of-the-road hotel. However, if you want somewhere you can relax, be spoiled and pampered, it’s better to search for luxury accommodation. It doesn’t mean you have to pay above what you can afford, but it does mean you’ll get a personalised service throughout.

Get Recommendations

If you’re new to travelling in South African regions, you may be wondering how to find the best accommodation. Try using a comparison website to narrow down your search. If you’re still finding it difficult to decide, ask someone who has been before.

Getting recommendations from someone you know and trust is one of the easiest ways to book an accommodation you’ll be happy with. Failing this, visit the hotel websites and take a look at the reviews left from past visitors.


It’s important to consider the amount of space you need. Are you travelling with your family? Are you likely to have business colleagues visit your luxurious suite? Are you looking for a romantic hotel for a romantic break? This may mean you need a spacious suite, a guest house, or even a boutique hotel spa where you can make use of amenities like a gym, swimming pools, or massage therapy. The team at SEVEN Villa Hotel & Spa offers intimacy with the small-sized hotel, enabling them to provide personalised service.

Choose your Boutique Hotel Wisely

If you’re looking for a boutique hotel in South Africa, you’re likely to find them in many cities. At SEVEN Villa Hotel & Spa, you can be sure you’ll receive a service second to none. At the award-winning hotel, everything is taken care of for you. Why not take a look at the boutique hotel's offers and get in touch for more details?

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
