Relax at Sparkling Waters

Relax at Sparkling Waters

The Magaliesberg Mountain Range is a place of unrivalled beauty and unique abundance. This makes it the perfect escape for city slickers that need a break. Living and working in an urban area becomes enormously stressful, taxing the body of its natural, healthful resources. Without investing time in your body and mind, you can soon burn out. For this reason, it is essential to seek solace and real relaxation on a regular basis.

The Magaliesberg Mountains are home to a number of fabulous retreats for the weary and stress-ridden.

The sun deck is the ideal place for guests to go after their treatments, as they bask in the serenity of the Magaliesberg.
