About

Set in 550 hectares of beautiful KZN bushveld amongst giant Cambrian granite boulders that are millions of years old, the Gooderson Natal Spa Hot Springs & Leisure Resort has beautiful views over the Bivane River and abundant bird life. Legend has it that the river at Natal Spa's warm water and bubbles were the work of a large black snake with an underground lair. While that myth may have kept the ancient San people from the healing mineral waters, it certainly didn't have the same effect on Oom Piet Wessles or the generations of visitors who have stopped over at this oasis between Vryheid and Paulpietersberg.

My wife and I enjoyed a midweek two night stay at the resort. The facilities, catering and service were excellent and exceeded our expectations. Understandably all facilities are not operational midweek (Zipline).

A lovely location with the hot springs, spoilt by maintenance issues in our rooms (flooding bathrooms) and pathetic excuses as to why the rooms were not ready at check-in time - even though reception had suggested the rooms would be available early. As recommended we arrived early to have lunch in the Bistro, but had to wait 2 hours after lunch to actually move into the rooms.

My family had such a great time that we extended our stay. Everything was fantastic, especially the hot springs and most importantly the members of staff who were all phenomenal. Thank you Chef George, Chef Jabu, Cynthia, Luyanda, Charles, Chef Paseka, sis Nelly (House keeping) & Lindobuhle. The two gentlemen at the zip lining were also fabulous. Great holiday destination indeed. Highly recommended.
