This was my 5th visit to Brookdale & I loved every moment. The Brookdale experience is outstanding. It’s a haven where you can relax, be pampered & properly recharge. I learn so much during the talks at Brookdale & the food by Chef Yelena was so delicious. It is hard to believe that it’s all healthy, balanced meals. No starving. Just wholesome deliciousness. I hope to be back very soon!

This is a magical place that soothes the soul, opens the heart and heals the body. My sister and I left the kids with the hubbys and headed to Brookdale for a quick 2 night stay. We booked the standard room, which was lovely. Super comfy beds, good pillows, modern bathroom, electric blankets (which we didn't need) and a towel heater in the bathroom. The room opened on to a garden courtyard and was close to the treatment rooms and the main secton. I loved all the attention to detail. Everything has been set up to make your stay as calming and regenerative as possible. The food was spectacular. I didn't want my meals to end! The surrounding area is beautiful and lovely to go for walks in. My favorite part of my stay was the labyrinth. My best take away was just how wonderfully kind all the staff were and how welcome and valued they made us feel. Thank you Brookdale for a wonderful stay.

A wellness retreat in beautiful surroundings for body, mind and soul. Incredible massages, treatments and facilities! Gorgeous, healthy food in mindful portions. Great activities included to choose from: meditation, walks, gym, aquarobics, Pilates, yoga and excellent health talks. Do them all or do none. Enormous respect for quiet and tranquility. Worth the money for both the experience and the outcome.

What a fabulous weeks rest and pampering - well done to Wendy, Tamara and the entire crew - came back relaxed & lost weight. Was a great detox from work, cel phones and television. Nothing to do but eat healthy food and be pampered. Will be back again - first class hydro with first class service.

My daughter and I have just enjoyed our first stay at Brookdale Health Hydro in the KZN Midlands. The experience was ‘good for the soul’! Everything works like clockwork. Professionalism combines with kindness and caring providing a memorable experience. The genuine, warm approach of the owners cascades down to every staff member who interacted with us. Guests go there for many reasons including de-stressing, weight gain/loss, treatments and education on health. While my purpose was to spend quality time with my daughter, I loved the relaxed atmosphere, food, surroundings and choice of a wide range of activities. The indoor and outdoor pools, exercises and other classes add to the choice of activities while we enjoyed freedom. I particularly enjoyed Antoinette McDonald’s journaling course. Testimony to the experience of guests is the fact that amongst the 20 guests staying there during our 3-day visit, only three of us seemed to be there for the first time. Guests return year-after-year. I can’t wait for my next stay and highly recommend the facility.

I had a wonderful 3 night repeat annual visit to Brookdale, as many of the guests do. It is a Health Spa so you can expect nutritious, balanced and healthy meals, prepared according to the Nutrifit programme. The ambience of Brookdale is calm and peaceful , no cellphones allowed in certain areas, so be prepared for a digital detox which is good for mental health and stress levels. The highlight for me is always the wonderful spa treatments. All the therapists are well trained experts! Lovely staff, wonderful stay.

Every apsect of our stay was extraordinary, from the service, to the spa treatments, food options and our divine suite. The spa is located in a breathtaking natural environment, my husband and I felt at home and extremely comfortable from the moment we arrived. Every guest is treated with compassion and it is evident that the staff are focused on ensuring that guests have the very best of times. Truly a fantastic place for a romantic wedding anniversary. We enjoyed our stay loads!

Beautiful, serene setting to rest and recharge. Love the setting in nature, their ability to pamper one and introduce you to healthy ways of living. Fresh, healthy, colorful food, variety of exercise, spa treatments, wonderful amenities with jacuzzi, steam and sauna and nature at your doorstep. Excellent place to go when you need a break and de-stress. Wonderful friendly and professional consultants and health advisors. Thank you Brookdale for another great stay.

Another outstanding week at Brookdale. We have been coming here for approx 25 years and it has evolved into such a beautiful, relaxing, rejuvenating place. The staff are all carrying, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. The new upgrades to certain areas first class too. Meals are delicious, nutritious, and healthy. Can’t wait for our next visit in March. HIGHLY recommend.

There is not enough words to explain what a wonderful experience my 6 days stay were at Brookdale. Staff were caring, helpful and very professional - treatments were the best. All the lectures were outstanding. The de-stress and health reset plan really helped me a lot. I will recommend it to anybody and will visit Brookdale again
