About
Description
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 More 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 Less
