Reserve Resort


Dar alIslam

Situated in the Sabie Valley on the R536 road in Kiepersol, Mpumalanga, a mere 25km from The Kruger National Park – Phabeni Gate, The Reserve Resort sits on the banks of the Sabaan River, just 50 metres from where 3 rivers meet, the Sabaan, Sabie and Mac Mac.

The natural surroundings and tranquil setting lends itself to lazy afternoon teas, cocktails on the decks, fresh country fare and festive gatherings.

The gardens and grounds include a large children’s play gym, swimming pool with a deck overlooking the Sabaan River and also an undercover kindergarten play area.

Phase one of our development offers four Sabaan Riverside Rooms and one Suite, offering Bed and Breakfast amenities and services. Phase two of Hotel & Spa development is currently under construction, scheduled to open late 2023 and is situated on the banks of the Sabie River.

A la Carte Breakfasts, Lunches and Afternoon teas are served in the Reserve Restaurant. The Restaurant is also an ideal venue for country weddings, children’s birthday parties, baby showers, kitchen teas, pool parties, corporate events and much more.

We are based just 11km from Hazyview, 65km from Nelspruit, 68km from the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport and 26km from The Kruger Park – Phabeni Gate.

Nearby attractions include: – The Kruger National Park, Gods Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, The 3 Rondavels/Blyde River Canyon, Graskop Sky Lift and many more.

Luxury Hazyview Hotel and Guesthouse

An oasis of luxury in the heart of the evergreen haven of Hazyview, The Reserve offers its guests a truly quiet escape from the world. With stylish rooms, a spacious restaurant and a rejuvenating spa (opening in 2023), guests who choose to stay at The Reserve are pampered and leave feeling refreshed and revived. The gentle bubbling sounds from the nearby stream along with the peaceful sounds of a breeze blowing lazily through the swaying green trees which provide natural shade to the hotel, all add to the calm atmosphere that we’ve become known for.

Situated close to the Kruger National Park, The Reserve is unlike any other Hazyview hotels. We are a boutique hotel in every sense of the word and we cater to only a few overnight guests at a time, to ensure maximum privacy and a space in which our guests can truly unwind without being disrupted by noise. Our tranquil setting is ideal for visitors of all kinds, including couples, small families and business people passing through the area. We have lush gardens and a play area for children to enjoy, and a bar where guests can indulge in a cocktail as they watch the sun dip beyond the mountains and trees. There is something for everyone at The Reserve.

Kruger National Park Accommodation

Many who visit the Kruger National Park prefer to stay outside of the park rather than settle for the rustic accommodation within. Our exceptionally close proximity to the park makes us the first choice for anyone wanting to experience the park during the day but rest their heads on a luxurious king size bed once the day of safaris and sightseeing is over. Our Kruger National Park accommodation is like no other.

Our location is less than half an hour from the closest Kruger gate and guests can easily enjoy a full day safari, leaving before the sun is up and returning before dark.

Guests can expect comfortable accommodation in any one of our current rooms while family style accommodation, for larger groups, is currently being constructed and will be made available in 2023, along with our spa and conference facilities. Our current accommodation is fully furnished and guests can be social with their meals, by taking a short walk to the restaurant and joining us for breakfast, lunch or a light snack. For evening meals, dinner is available in peak season and available on request in low season [table d’hote menu]. Groups of more than 10 guests can be accommodated for dinner at the restaurant.

An Evergreen Wedding Venue in Hazyview

Beneath the shade of the Fever Trees and the other indigenous foliage, loving partners can exchange their special vows which will bond them in matrimony. We have the most picturesque wedding venue in Hazyview, complete with accommodation and a restaurant to cater for the reception. We can set up the perfect outdoor wedding, one that will be characterised by the exquisitely green surrounding nature. We offer tailor made packages for weddings (event planning) from a – z. Winters are mild here, which allows couples to plan their outdoor nuptials for any time of the year. The surrounding scenery will make for the most beautiful backdrop for your wedding photographs.

As more couples choose to leave the traditional indoor wedding and instead celebrate the start of their new lives together beneath a canopy of green leaves, The Reserve is the intimate venue that you’ve been searching for.

Second Phase of Construction

Adding more Hazyview accommodation while also setting up a fully functional conference centre and spa is the next development phase of The Reserve. Opening in late 2023, our boutique spa will offer guests all kinds of luxury massages and beauty treatments. In the hands of one of our professional beauty therapists, guests can indulge their senses and experience complete relaxation.

Book your stay at our Hazyview hotel today, or contact us for more information, before you travel to our small town. We’ll help you plan the most memorable stay that will entice you to come back for another visit.
