    I had the privilage to be at the Spa on Saturday and when we got there, we had a wonderful breakfast, the staff sang to us and then we received 2 treatments from the nicest therapists. I had a full body massage and a leg and foot massage. The surroundings are so beautiful and peacefull. The owner and manager are both lovely people and so friendly. I’ll just have to go back on another occasion for some more…

    More than just a spa, a retreat in nature!!
    We had the pleasure of celebrating my friend’s birthday at the Klippenbosch Spa last week. We enjoyed seeing some giraffes while driving through the small nature reserve and were welcomed in such a warm and gracious manner by the friendly host Adele and Hantie who is the owner. Hantie has over 40 years experience as physio therapist. While waiting in the cozy living area by the fire place, we were offered something hot to drink. Hantie then personally introduced the staff to us individually by name. This left a lasting impression on me and I loved that she treated them with so much dignity and respect. I felt that this also reflected the mentality and character of the management of the spa. We loved the song the ladies sang in their mother tongue as well as a birthday song specially for my friend. After changing into our robes we were taken to a lovely sun drenched deck enveloped by nature where one sit back in chairs looking out onto the trees. We loved that there were no music and only the singing of birds while getting pampered by the very experienced massage therapists. They are very conscious over the level of massage one prefer (ask you before they start) and made sure to give me a very gentle one due to some ongoing health issues. In between the 4 treatments we were offered a snack platter while sitting in the garden next to the pool. My one friend even fell asleep while getting the facial massage 🙂 Afterwards we enjoyed a delicious lunch. The butternut soup was the best I have ever tasted and the main course very tasty too. I unfortunately forgot a piece of clothing there and was so pleasantly surprised to have the wonderful hostess/manager Adele personally deliver it the next day at the house I’m staying in Pretoria - such a kind and thoughtful gesture. This is more than just a spa, it is a connection with nature where one can hang your heart and rest your soul. I’ve done a lot of research before booking this spa and it was the only one with no bad reviews. You are not just a number and from what I can tell most of the customers have been there before. It is also the best value for money in terms of the amount of hours of treatment they offer. Just book this place, you will not be dissappointed!! Thank you Hantie, Adele and all the wonderful staff for making our spa day so special!! We will certainly be back!

Klippenbosch offers a unique and very special spa experience in beautiful bushveld surroundings. Hantie is a warm and gracious hostess, while her staff and therapists are lovely. We chose the full day spa package with an overnight stay in a delightful country cottage - excellent value for money. The treatments are divine. Breakfast, snacks and lunch are healthy but heavenly, as well as stylishly presented. To sum up - a fabulous way to spend a relaxing day, while escaping the stresses of everyday reality.

Everything from the booking to leaving was exceptional. They have fantastic client care and make sure that you have all info regarding your booking and getting there as well as personal request addressed before you even arrive.
The staff are all very welcoming, skilled and professional. Magical hands. The venue is an absolute oasis and the food delicious.
Hentie thank you for your vision and Adél and team for executing so beautifully! You'd be hard-pressed to find better value for money anywhere. Well worth the drive out there.
