This third generation family-run hydro is full of surprises. Everybody is so friendly and helpful and the whole place is calm and serene, starting with the loveliest 2 ladies at reception, Elizabeth and Thato. All the beauty and massage therapists have golden hands and a full body massage is truly an out of body experience. The hydro offers Turkish steam... More

I had not been to Hoogland for 6 years and was pleased to go back and find that the services offered were now better, more varied and more professional. The staff were going out of their way to help. The daily meditation,nature walks and yoga were very good. The pools, steam bath and gym offer good supplementary treatments and a... More

Arrived at 1 PM in time for a massage I had booked. The lobby, as is much of the accommodation, is a wonderful throwback to the 70's. Many may not like it I thought it was really sweet. Check in courteous and quick. The room complete with shaggy blue carpet and 70's wood was extremely clean and comfortable. The therapy... More

Nothing has changed in the past 18 months, staff and management remain consistently around, watchfully and friendly, the food is great and the newish musli is beyond great. It is worth the trip from Cape Town as we do not have anything near this in the Western Cape in a world where noting works and standards drop, Hoogland has kept... More

An excellent place to unwind and detox. I have been going to Hoogland on a regular basis every 3 to 4 months for the past 4 years. Food is marvellous, staff are warm and sincere, treatments are professionally done by excellent masseuses, and I always return to Johannesburg with batteries fully re-charged! I often include physio treatments with Jurgen, and... More

Just 1 hour drive from Jo'burg is Hoogland Hydro - a wonderful oasis of tranquility, relaxation and healing, where you can simply relax totally, or detox using the 'hydro therapy cycle' and chill-out in the fresh air, or indulge yourself in pampering massages and treatments, or take a health-restoring fast under the expert guidance of Dr Andre and Sister Elsa....

I cannot fault the health treatments & hydro facilities at the Hoogland Health Hydro, however I was disappointed with the accommodation. The rooms were incredibly tired & the building in general had the feel that it was in desperate need of attention. I had to move rooms 3 times, as the 2 of the rooms I was shown were leaking,...

Monia V, Manager at Hoogland Health Hydro, responded to this review

Good Day Thank you for taking the time to write. Hoogland is much more than a spa, and we pride ourselves in this. My grandfather built the building, and it is not very modern or upmarket. It is homely and comfortable, and the sprawling space allows it to never feel crowded, even when we are full, one of the many... More

Staff friendly. Grounds beautiful. Food delicious. Will go again for sure. Will check my body from head to toe when I leave because I was bitten by one of their ticks and was very ill for about a week. Other than that the staff is friendly and the facilities great except for my bathroom which I could not use.
