GREAT LOCATION and BEST VALUE for money! Hands On Retreat is a 4-Star, boutique retreat and sleep spa in Craighall, Johannesburg. Here we focus on "us time" and offer special packages that combine accommodation with spa treatments. Couples have the opportunity to break away for a night or weekend. In our contemporary rushed lives, it is all the more important to make time for each other. Our most popular package is the Couples Sleepover with a hot stone massage for couples, combined with a romantic picnic. Or you could check in for a Full Day Couples Spa treatment and spend the night! We are close to the Sandton and Rosebank Gautrain station, a hop away from the Hyde Park Shopping Center. The setting is a park-like garden with tall trees, its own brook flowing through it and abundant bird life. The accommodation is ideal for business or leisure travelers, with numerous treatment packages for individuals or couples. RATES DROP FOR WEEKLY AND MONTHLY STAYS

The manager Karin and her staff were very friendly helpful, welcoming and enthusiastic. They were kind enough to help me pull off a surprise for my fiancés 25th birthday, he was very impressed and also surprised. We cannot wait to go back!!

The room we stayed in: 1. Bed must be replaced immediately. Springs are finished, the noise is irritating. As this was our 3rd visit, our input regarding this hasn't been considered. 2. The bathroom full of spiderwebs. One wonders when last any cleaning took place. The massage treatment is great though. We'll not visit this place again until new beds and maintenance are done.

Thank you, we really enjoyed the special treat to relax and sleep over. It was a great treat for us as a couple. Just want to make a suggestion, try and not come to knock for any questions like what time will you be up for breakfast this could have been asked on the form we filled out when we arrived or after the treatments before check in when we did the review. Other then that everything was perfect and we really enjoyed the day out and the spoil.
