I love visiting the Riverview Spa for celebrations with my girls. Whether for birthday celebrations, career celebrations or just some special time. While the staff are very accommodating and friendly, my favourite experience was the quality of massages. The 90 minute full body massage was the best I have received. The overnight accommodation is impeccably clean and comfortable, and I really appreciated the small gestures and momentos that were left waiting for us. I've recommended this place to so many, and have heard no one complain about it.

The absolute best aspect of this spa is the setting and in second place a team of charming therapists. A perfect country escape on the outskirts of Johannesburg. My visit was shortly after a lot of rain around Gauteng and the scenery was just brilliant. I booked the ‘Me Time’ package as it includes several treatments, meals and accommodation. Well priced and it includes a good variety of treatments like massages, steam room and jacuzzi sessions and more. The place was busy on the day I arrived (based on the number of cars in the parking area) but the treatments are performed on different areas of the estate so it felt very private and the personal attention by the team was excellent. I wish I could rate various aspects separately as some were 5 star all the way and others not so much. Setting and scenery: 5 stars. Therapists and treatments: 5 stars. Welcome and attention: 5 stars. Food: 2 maybe 3 stars (it was not horrible, not fabulous, just fine). Accommodation: 3 stars (room was comfortable and great linen but the room booked for me is adjacent to the main house so lots of traffic from main complex with a garden gate being opened and closed as people come and go; not really private). Biggest disappointment of the room was the plugs nests, looked amateurish and a bit DYI. What about neat multiplugs secured to a wall maybe? What I disliked most is the use of plastic. The place prides itself on its country setting and natural environment and products with natural ingredients are used for treatments. Yet this ‘natural’ vibe was destroyed by the use of plastic straws and swizzle sticks for drinks and horrible plastic containers for the picnic lunch included in the package. There are so many better looking and earth friendly recyclable options available for food packaging these days, I do hope the team will consider these in the future. I will go again but only for a day visit. A full body massage in a bungalow with views of the river and my own private jacuzzi looking at the hills and valleys of Muldersdrift were brilliant. Oh and PS better quality nail varnish like OPI, Essie or Morgan Taylor may be a good idea.

Dear Daleen Thank you very much for your time to send us your in-depth feedback. We appreciate your positive review on our beautiful location. It is indeed close to paradise at the moment and it is our privilege sharing this lovely space with our clients. We appreciate you recognizing our five star level of service, welcome and attention, therapists and therapy, private therapy rooms overlooking the riverfront and reasonable pricing. Although we are not graded a five star facility, we aim to deliver the highest quality of service, comfortable, accommodation and highest value for money possible. Your visit did indeed fell over a busy time but we do schedules and organize our program in such a way that it is still very private for our guests to enjoy the tranquility of being close to nature, we are happy that you also experienced that. We took your suggestions to heart and herewith some feedback. Room-plugs in chalet 1 : Attended to - multi-plugs secured to the wall - thank you for the suggestion. Room tip: Choice of room: If you prefer one of our most private rooms, please request one of the following chalets: Chalet 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 - if it is available by the time of reservation, we will gladly allocate it to you. Chalet 1, 2 and 3 are considered as our Garden chalets and closer to the reception and pool/treatment areas. Even though these rooms are beautiful and considered relatively private, close by activity might be possible during busier times as these chalets are located closer to the main building. Plastic packaging for picnic's - this was high on our priority list and we are very proud that we rolled this out for the new year. It is with great excitement that we found a suitable supplier for what we were looking for and we now changed all our picnic and take away containers to Green Picnics - and we do now use biodegradable and compostable packaging as well as paper straws - as we also believe some things should last and some things shouldn't. (greenhome.co.za). We incorporate this as far as possible. Thank you ones again for your visit and constructive feedback. We trust that you will have a blessed year ahead. Looking forward to welcoming you back in future. Best regards Elmari & Riverview Team

We recently celebrated my husband's birthday at Riverview Spa with the most relaxing and incredible Aroma Full Body Couple's Massage done by friendly and very professional staff, followed by a Jacuzzi session in a tranquil, natural environment. The "Cherry on the Cake" was definitely the scrumptious and mouth watering picnic at the riverside. The food was so fresh and appeti

I have adopted this spa as my OWN. I feel so at home here. The tranquility and atmosphere is mind blowing. One will go far to get a full body massage to the quality of this.... it’s is world-class. The calmness of the nature is amazing. Staff is friendly and very professional. Here one can relax and feel the calmness flow over you. When you leave you feel like a new person. I’d recommend Riverview Spa to everyone.

We had an amazing 2 night stay at Riverview Spa. The food was delicious and beautifully plated. The accommodation ticked all the boxes. All facilities were clean and adhered to covid protocols. The treatment rooms are immersed in a natural setting with sounds of the river and birds adding to the ambience. All therapists were experienced and treatments left you relaxed and wanting more. The service was immaculate and the attention to detail appreciated. An amazing experience. Can't wait to go back!

This spa is in a wonderful country setting. There are friendly faces everywhere and the therapists are efficient.

Treatments are done in wooden therapy rooms across the property with interesting nooks and crannies everywhere

The lounge area has everything to ensure you are comfortable during the stay.

Take a walk down to the river to make the most of the time here
There is also a restaurant on the premises that serve meals

A wonderful, peaceful place just outside the city

We have been going to Riverview Spa for as long as I can remember, I will not go anywhere else very easily or by choice. Elmari , her therapists and her front office managers are so friendly and accommodating and nothing is too much to ask. The treatments are all divine! You are not rushed and it's truly the ultimate relaxation experience. The food is honestly delicious - home made and always so well presented! The spa itself is so serene , all the treatment rooms and common areas so tastefully decorated and the views over the river or the pool just add to the ambience and serenity.
I can honestly say we have never had a bad experience at Rivierview . If you are looking for value for money and somewhere not too far out of town , but makes you feel like you are in the countryside , I would highly recommend this spa! You will not be disappointed.

I have been going to Riverview Spa for years now, and keep going back time and time again. I have been there on my own (and had sleepovers for an extra treat!), I have been with a group of friends, and I even had my daughter's mini-spa party there! The food is lovely, the setting is absolutely beautiful and the treatments are amazing. Every therapist at Riverview is professional and nurturing, and I always leave Riverview feeling like I have spent a mini-vacation away from home. It seriously nourishes my soul after a day there. Elmari and her staff go above and beyond to ensure that your experience is wonderful - whether you're having one treatment or five! You have to try them out when you're next looking for a spa pamper, you won't be sorry!
