Being massaged by one of the many excellent massage therapists literally feels if you are touched by angels! The soothing ambience will relax you completely, and if you really want to experience something amazing, spend a little extra time in the riveting surround shower. After a visit to this spa you will feel that you have been on holiday,,

Today I had a hot (warm) stone massage and pedicure. Upon arrival it was a combination of take your time and rush as we need to get the process started. The pedicure is recommended. The face rest was uncomfortable. The men's locker room could use some additional amenities and towels inside would be helpful. Overall I left relaxed.

I had the unfortunate experience of trying out a new spa in Boksburg THE HYDRO SPA and I think its safe to say that change is not always good. Before I could even step through the door I had problems nonetheless that is in the past and I will be very wary about changing my spa's. This is by far... More

My wife and I were staying at the hotel and had some time to kill so we decided to have a spa treatment. I had the deep tissue massage. Like most spas, it is worthwhile to arrive early to fill out a quick questionaire form and enjoy some of the spa amenities. My treatment was for a full hour and... More

With time to waste before we headed to the airport we decided to pay the hourly rate for a late checkout & enjoy spa treatments. Get to your appt early so you can enjoy the outdoor pool, steam room, jet pool, refreshments & fruit. I had the four seasons treatment which after almost 3 weeks in Africa & doing safaris... More

At first unsure about forthcoming experience - but it proved to be a pleasant one and was a jwell managed afternoon. Staff are friendly and help put one at ease. Just a bit pricey to do on a regular basis!

Went for our anniversary, were really looking forward to a very expensive treat for 2, upon arrival my husbands changing rooms were disgusting to the point he took photos to show me as I would not have believed him - Octavia's spa in a 5 star hotel should be at least 4 stars right? Definitely not, towels and gowns all... More

Good place for a day spa. My husband and I had massages:mine was 90 mins and his was 60. No complaints about massages. Spa could use some sitting stools for hair drying and some razors for men and women. My shower had no shampoo. Had to move.
