Enveloped by wetlands teeming with prolific birdlife and the majestic Mdimba Mountains looming over the fertile Malkerns Valley, Swaziland, Willows Lodge is a tranquil Garden of Eden. The ideal location make for the fabulous establishment to be a sought after getaway for business and leisure travellers alike.

Accommodation at Willows Lodge consists of:

Set within secure grounds overlooking sugar cane fields, Willows Lodge offer accommodation in 14 stylish brick chalets of which 9 are self-catering. With fully equipped kitchens you have a choice of self-catering or opt for bed and breakfast. The interior decoration is absolutely exquisite with soothing hues echoing the scenic calm environment. Sink into the Jacuzzi bath after a long day of exciting adventures or enjoy a refreshing shower outdoors, truly a unique experience.

Each of Willows Lodge's chalets has a lovely portable braai can be organized for you if you would like to braai at your own chalet and a splendid veranda from where to absorb the wetlands and mountain views. Enjoy delicious hearty meals in the marvellous dining area which leads to a communal barbeque area. Relax in the welcoming Willy's Pub, a friendly spot for socialising and from where to take in the astounding vistas from the bar's veranda.

Willows Lodge's serene surroundings is perfect for taking long walks, or you could escape and quietly fish for bass in the well-stocked dam. Have a meal at a nearby restaurant, shop for stocks at the shopping centres all mere minutes from the lodge, and enjoy live entertainment at the trendy House on Fire restaurant / amphitheatre. Play a round of golf at the spectacular Royal Swazi Resort, try your luck at the casino, explore the Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary on horseback and mountain bike, and hike the extensive network of trails. No visit will be complete without browsing the fabulous craft markets and fantastic Swazi Candles factory. Willows Lodge's inviting atmosphere is mind-blowing, the surroundings awe-inspiring, the lodgings gorgeous, undeniably a first-class accommodation choice whilst visiting the amazing Malkerns Valley.

Such a lovely, clean and cosy room, lovely gardens, quiet and was a great stay. Birds singing and nice to have a bar to go to. Took food as self catering, and had a nice evening. Slept well and had a great breakfast the next morning. Really a good place to stay when in the Malkerns area.

Superb. 5 out of 5

Very cozy and comfortable stay. The peacefulness and quiet farming environment allows for a wonderful rest. This is a "go-again" option without hesitance. Thank you Marcia and staff for the early morning breakfasts.

Located not very far from the main road. Friendly staff and lovely environment.
Cabins were very clean and warm. Was looking forward to a warm bath after long drive and unfortunately the only have showers. Breakfast was very nice except also they finish serving it around 09h00 which is still too early by any standards.

Booked 2 rooms. Each has tiny kitchenette with small stove and fridge. Rooms are comfortable but not luxurious. Beautiful gardens and grounds. Meals are available on request but we did not have meals at the venue, instead decided to eat out.
Was disturbed during afternoon nap after long drive from Durban, South Africa, by other quests who were off road bikers testing and revving their bikes. But otherwise was a quiet, peaceful venue.
Masha, the manageress, was efficient and friendly.

There was a mix up with the booking and I overpaid. The Receptionist suggested that I use my credit at their restaurant . However when I went there is the late afternoon the place was closed. I asked a staff member that was busy in the kitchen what time they were opening and she told me that the place does not open on Saturdays. Later on I heard some of noise coming from there and upon investigation found the place open and 3 people inside. Very confusing !
Overall a very nice place .

I enjoyed the stay at Willows Lodge. The staff was so kind and understanding. I liked the owner, who took time to come and greet us every morning at the breakfast table and asked everyone if everything is ok. I would not mind to go back there again.
