A stunning little gem is in the final throes of being constructed on the outskirts of White River, Mpumalanga.3


With an expected opening in mid-January, the boutique destination will be set for the high season of international tourists that traditionally converge on the Lowveld in the first quarter of the year.


Cindy Sheedy Walker CEO of Extraordinary has expressed her delight in adding this hotel to the Extraordinary Collection of Luxury Lodges and Hotels. “We will be offering several new packages in conjunction with our Kruger Concession lodges, and including this in the Extraordinary Journey – a package that includes Cape Town, Kruger, Victoria Falls and Chobe.”


Situated approximately 10minutes’ drive from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport and only 3.5 hours’ drive from Johannesburg, Country Boutique Hotel is easily accessible. The Kruger National Park is a mere 46 km away, whilst the Panorama Route beckons within an hours’ drive.


The hotel boasts twenty-two rooms, of which fourteen are courtyard facing whilst the balance offer gorgeous views of the Whiteriver Valley. The original homestead of owners Piet and Ria de Jager which was located on their family avocado farm was the perfect setting for a small hotel. They decided to redesign their family home and create this charming little haven for select guests. The gorgeous double volume entrance leads into the cool inner sanctuary offering a tranquil lounge, light and airy dining room which opens onto the wide open verandahs.


Owner Ria enjoys the true country style of the lowveld she grew up in and mentions that she wanted to achieve an understated elegance in her use of light fabrics with splashes of bright colour, and glittery chandeliers and white linen for evenings. The table d’hote menu will offer guests a relaxing dining experience accompanied by a great wine selection.A gorgeous new style boutique destination soon to be experienced.
