Zomba, Malawi
Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Clean, decent shower, good mattress, nice receptionists, overall a good place where to stay in Blantyre. It is a bit out of town but this means they have rooms when nobody else has. Free WiFi. A plus is the eccellent Italian seafood restaurant on the premises. Fairly priced for Blantyre (80-100 USD)

Villa 33 transports you out of the hustle and bustle of the city, into a magical garden paradise. I love staying here as the rooms are sunny and cheerful. The gardens magnificent with little monkeys jumping around from tree to tree. The Italian restaurant has a flamboyant Italian chef, who is happy to make personal recommendations or tailor a dish...

We were found Villa 33 via trip advisor; we were around the corner at BeesBooks and looked for something near - we were so so so so pleased with it all! Bruschetta, Pizzas, wine then ending with tiramisu and espresso - was like we were back in Italy where my office was for a few years. Thank you owners managers...

I had a wonderful time at Villa33. The garden and courtyard are gorgeous, and the service excellent. I enjoyed all the meals I ate there (not an extensive menu, but an enjoyable one), and the staff was very helpful. I stayed in one of the new bungalows on the left when you come in. They're basic but quite nice. Clean,...

Thank you for the review! Our coffee is sourced from a local tea and coffee estate which is located an hour away from Blantyre so they are always freshly roasted!

WiFi in the restaurant (which, admittedly, has a limited menu but the good was good). Staff were very helpful and friendly. Recommend going up to mount Blantyre and seeing the sunset. Rooms were good. Electricity was constant, good power the showers. Plus monkeys in the garden that kept their distance. Who doesn't like watching monkeys?

they have reduced the meals on offer compared to previous years, so could only go for one option which was ok, they had no sweets or puddings, yet it is now cold in Malawi. They only had ice cream on offer. Staff are lovely and the place is clean and it is very tranquil

Thank you for your review and feedback. We had some unexpected kitchen staffing issues during your stay which have now been resolved. Our new staff will be undergoing training over the next few weeks which we hope will allow us to once again serve the tasty meals that we have been known for.

There is nothing more annoying than turning up at an establishment and finding that they have changed your original booking. In other words, you book a particular room location or bed configuration and when you arrive you are allocated something different. So this is what Villa 33 did to us. We booked a family room and were allocated 2 double...
