 Q: Can I run multiple bhyve hosts under VMware nested VT-x EPT?
 A: Yes, but you must enable [1] it: look for the GUI or vhv.allow or
    vhv.enable options

At [1]:

 Virtualized HV is available for virtual hardware version 8 VMs on hosts
 that support Intel VT-x and EPT or AMD-V and RVI, but it cannot be
 selected through the user interface. To enable virtualized HV, edit the
 outer guest's configuration file by hand and add the following line:

  vhv.enable = TRUE


If you read [0] further, there are answers about Linux KVM, VirtualBox
and Hyper-V. The latter two does not support VT-x EPT.

You may want to ask the VM hosting people about their implementation and
configuration.
