We took the half day treat as the finishing touch for our two weeks holiday and it was just as relaxing as we expected. Just need to make sure that other guests respect the quietness and peace.

Stayed: April 2012, traveled as a couple

Wow, this truly lives up to the name, I had booked my wife and myself in over the last weekend, and well it was simply awe inspiring and relaxing!
Karin the manager was always at a persons beak and call, and always looking to make the stay as comfortable as possible.
Hands on Retreat Spa is a dream in the middle of the city! I will recommend them any day.

My sister-in-law went here just after Christmas, stunning location, very relaxing, hope for another visit on my next trip to SA (hint hint)
A great place to go to chill and relax. Excellent head, foot and hand massage. Neck massage was a little severe though

have been a few times now and loved every visit. I am a big massage fan and have had massages all over the world and I highly rate this place.
the ambience is stunning, nothing to beat sitting on a deck overlooking the river with your neck/head/back/feet/hands being massaged.
it really is an oasis for the soul.
