We went to Bergwaters Eco Lodge for a couple's side-by-side full body massage at the Beauticus spa. Our booking was on a weekday at 3 in the afternoon. We arrived an hour early so may have caught our hosts off-guard as the hostess had all her fingers wrapped in tinfoil. We were received in the parking lot and lead up... More

The overall venue looked lovely. The blue swimming pool was well maintained and gave me a false sense of comfort.

The most disappointing of all... More

They have quite a few things to do, like tennis, squash, table tennis, a hiking trail, a pool table, darts and a swimming pool.

We found Bergwater online and booked a long weekend break to get away from the city. We found a little piece of heavan instead. Bergwater is ideally located 2.5 hours from Gauteng.
