The Royal Villas
The Royal Villas Swaziland offers award winning accommodation, conference
facilities and fine cuisine all year round.
Set in a beautiful secure estate with stunning views of the Royal Mdzimba Mountains, the gold and browns of the African savannah are echoed throughout the Villas with each room designed to make the most of the African sunlight and views.
The signature Lihawu restaurant provides a fine dining experience with exquisite pan-African cuisine. Furnished in elegant African style, the warmth and gentle lighting are greatly conducive to ordering something special from Sivunu, our premier wine cellar.
Guests have a choice of lounges and outdoor venues in which to relax and soak up the best of Africa. Whether you prefer the welcoming pool terrace or the more formal lounge, you may be forgiven for being reluctant to ever leave this haven of elegance.
Located just 10 minutes from the capital Mbabane, the Villas are well positioned close to a range of attractions and activities.
Each of our 57 luxury guest rooms are set within 14 carefully designed Villas providing a haven of optimum comfort for the trendy traveller or businessman. Furnished with extra comfortable beds fitted with exquisite cotton, each room is fully-equipped with air-conditioning, heated towel rails, mini bars and Wi-Fi.
Every Villa is prepared with well appointed lounge areas, dining rooms & beautiful gardens.
When taking a room in a Villa, the residents of that Villa (4 rooms max.) share the common facilities of the dining room, the lounge, and the outside seating areas (with the exception of the King Suite private outdoor patio). Occupying an entire Villa entitles the guest to exclusive use of all facilities within that Villa.
The Lihawu is open to the public and offers a delightful ambience of contemporary Africa. The menu features Classic African Fusion Cuisine as well as monthly seasonal specials.
The restaurant can seat up to 130 people with smoking and non smoking sections & a gorgeous open door wooden deck facing the swimming pool.
The Lihawu proudly features the Sivuno Wine Cellar which boasts up to 1000 different superior wines. For the connoisseur, our wine club features personal wine storage space and excellent prices on selected featured wines.
On the Upper level of the restaurant is Endzaweni private dining facility featuring state of the art boardroom facilities with built in projector and viewing screen.
Enjoy an after dinner chat in the Ensangweni Whisky / Cigar Lounge. Entry is age restricted - must be over 18.
On the last Sunday of every month, The Lihawu hosts Sunday spit-braai barbeques beside the swimming pool area - an ideal family event!
Lihawu is open 7days a week;
Monday to Friday 07:00 - 22:00;
Saturday and Sunday 07:00 - 23:00.
