Ballito, South Africa35 contributions6 helpful votes
I used to love recommending friends and family to this "hidden gym". Took a friend from Johannesburg for her birthday treat for the day. Booked for a game drive, massage and lunch. Staff are always extremely friendly and pleasant. Game drive was average. Ranger very knowledgeable about antelopes and other limited animals. Vehicles need upgrading. Massages One of the toilet in the bathroom was dirty. It made the entire bathroom smell. Spa facility Average body massage in Ballito and surrounds R450 to R470. Rain Form R650. Was expecting an unforgettable experience for this price. All I can say is I have never experienced such a confused massage, it was a combination of Swedish, Thai and some other skills that I cannot give a title too. I could not complete the after massage review because at that stage I had nothing to say. We canceled lunch because we were traumatized from our experience and there was a strong smell of "old" oil coming from the kitchen area. We laughed all the way home. We freshened up and untangled our hair and went to a restaurant in Ballito for a late lunch. Might still recommend the game drive but definitely not the spa. Besides the pool area the entire place looks tired. Not sure about its 3star rating. My friend got up with a painful body the next day. I was so embarrassed.
