The luxurious countryside retreat Tintswalo at Waterfall, north of Johannesburg, has launched its newly relocated Waterfall Spa.

The spa has been moved from its previous location to the top floor of a building set apart from the main hotel. It comprises one single and two dual treatment rooms, as well as a spacious balcony with views overlooking the estate dam. The balcony is to be fitted with a canopy and heaters for the colder winter months, and will be used as a facility for select spa treatments.

Treatments can also be arranged poolside at the hotel, with views of the polo field, or in the comfort of one’s room. There are plans to introduce candlelit evening couples’ massages.

The spa is managed by independent business owner and qualified therapist, Katlego Maloka, and her team of five. The choice of spa packages features the signature ‘Especially for You’ treatment, which lasts four and a half hours and costs R1 960pp (€126). It consists of a full body massage with organic oils, a facial and paraffin manicure and pedicure – as well as a glass of bubbly and canapés for the ultimate pampering experience.
