What a disappointment! Booked a package for a special event and expected private personal treatment. Warm reception and beautiful robes booked in your size before the treatment. Then the suprise. More than 20 ladies undress for the occassion side by side in a tiny dressing room with one toilet sharing lockers for the day. The toilets at the pool out... More

The Bakwena Spa franchise took over at Sante Wellness Spa about a year ago. By chance we stumbled onto their fantastic half day special for the month of August (Women's month). Morning or Afternoon sessions are offered... we opted for the Afternoon session 12H00 - 16H00. The special of R650 per person included a full lunch with drinks, a 1hour... More

We had a spa day at Santé and we were greeted with a smile! We had the loveliest massages and could enjoy the jacuzzi, pool, sauna and steam room. Our couples massage was 5 star quality, the pressure was just as we had requested. We also tried their foot treatment where fish nibble your feet, what a strange and wonderful... More

Stayed there for 2 nights in July. Very spacious and comfortable room. Clearly an establishment aimed at the more affluent market. However, no warm water for 2 days in the middle of winter, leaking roof in the room and no WIFI although it is advertised as fully serviced WIFI. No initiative or any real attempt from manager or staff to... More

Didn't stay at the hotel, but went to the spa for a ladies day out. HEAVEN! The therapists were amazing. Every single treatment was relaxing and wonderful. The breakfast and lunch and drinks were amazing. The whole day was just incredible!
