We stayed in the standard room, and the accommodation was very comfortable, with direct access to the gardens. I enjoyed the food, there was plenty and it felt very healthy. I had not expected the detox to be so tough. I was wanting to be pampered and did not enjoy that aspect enough as I was suffering from the detox. If I did it again I would stop the obvious toxins e.g. coffee, fizzy cold drinks and alcohol a week before arriving so I could enjoy the massages more. Staff were extremely helpful and problems resolved quickly.
For the first time after 20 years of my last visit I did a 7 day detox at Hydro again. So much had changed and for the better I must say. Renovated rooms and surroundings as well as a flexible eating plan. The vegetarian food was delicious and appealingly presented and the variety of juices is nice. The only thing that I would recommend is to have the colonic treatment included in the 7 day program or at Least promoted already at the time of booking
I stayed with a friend on the 4 night package, expecting a ‘spa’ getaway, and it turned out to be so much more. I arrived with the feeling of ‘I’m just going to chill and enjoy this’, to feeling more determined to achieve weight loss and having a feeling of wellness as each hour went by. The Doctor was incredible - so warm and engaging - and she gave me fantastic advice that I’m implementing at home. All the staff, from the friendly restaurant staff, to the housekeepers to the therapists, were impeccable. I loved the food, which made me glow from the inside out. I achieved weight loss, and a feeling of health and serenity during my stay, not to mention silky smooth skin (please book the Cocoon Wrap, Hydrating Facial And Hydrotherapy). Thank you for the life-changing experience!…
I've taken a long time to post this - my bad! Had a life-changing experience at The Hydro in May 2019. Wonderful facility but what really makes them world-class is the people - the therapists and every other staff member from the kitchen to cleaners, reception and supervisors. The Liquid Body treatment by Jenny Bovim is absolutely unique and not to be missed if you are visiting, as are her mindfulness talks and sessions. Great food and professional and friendly service from the kitchen staff - I hardly missed all my bad habits for 10 days. A very belated but sincere thanks to all the staff including Mario, Reinette, Leroy, Wendy, Engela, Riaan, Noma, Libby and of course Jenny! I'm really looking forward to visiting again in a few months' time.
I have always visited for years for massages. And I also leave a credit balance for my next visit. This time mani and pedi was the worst I’ve received. There was no placing hands in water 😳. Nails no shine with buff🤦♀️🤦♀️. Ok so only massage with Mario. And then only to leave and another set of challenges that they cannot find my credit balance. No management on call after hours 😡😤
