About Us

Spoil yourself with an affordable break-away in a gorgeous setting. Only three hours away from Gauteng, Rotary Resort is situated at the foot of the Hlumuhlumu mountains, in the breath taking scenery and fresh air of the Mpumalanga country side.  Far enough from the city, our local hospitality will ensure you have an unforgetttable experience.

The diversity of our accommodation makes the resort a popular choice for single people, couples and groups of up to 90 guests. There are 26 en-suite rooms, a privately situated cottage which accomodates 7 people and has 22 rooms in the main complex which ensures that we can cater to any need.
Badplaas is situated at the foot of the Hlumuhlumu mountain range, 283km from Johannesburg in the Mpumalanga. The famous hot water mineral springs bubbles out at a rate of 30,000 liters per hour. It used to be known by the local tribes as “Emanzana” which translates to healing waters.

Badplaas is also blessed with more than 215 bird species unique to the Province. Should you visit us with your own transport, the Kruger National Park, Lydenburg, Graskop, Barberton and Nelspruit are all within driving distance for day trips. 

The Resort was officially opened by Mr. Rob Ferreira, Director of Mineral Baths in South Africa.  Our mission is to provide our elderly and retired citizens, not only with an unforgettable, but above all, an affordable holiday.
