Hands On Retreat is a 4-Star, boutique retreat and sleep spa in Craighall, Johannesburg. Here we focus on "our time" for couples 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. Pure pleasure!

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.

All of the units have their own garden entrances with a dedicated patio area, seating and table. Enjoy the fresh air while working on a smartphone or laptop with complimentary Wi-Fi, or relax with a book or a newspaper.

Each room has an en-suite bathroom with a shower and bath, toilet and basin. There are an extra-length and depth queen-size bed, underfloor heating, a mini safe and flat screen TV with selected DStv channels.

The Premium Rooms feature both a double bath and a double shower making it ideal for that special anniversary, wedding and honeymoon.

Guests can enjoy treatments on the deck overlooking the Craighall brook, meditate or just relax and enjoy nature at one of the many rest spots dotted around the garden. Light breakfast, lunches, High Teas and conversation picnic baskets can be enjoyed at the Fresh Coffee Shop.

Transport from the Gautrain station can be arranged for both overnight and day spa guests.

The spa pampers include a Couple Hot Stone Massage and picnic, the 3-hour Couple Spa Pamper or the Couple Full Day Spa Pamper.

Guests recharge and recover in the tranquil garden surroundings, yet most modern amenities including Wi-Fi access in all the rooms, the patios and onto the garden.
