A two hour vacation at Hands On begins with a 30 minute seated neck and shoulder massage. No oils are used for this treatment. Instead the masseuse makes use of a silk scarf and strong flexible fingers. Next you get to put your feet up for a half hour foot massage surrounded by the divine aromas of peppermint gel and coconut aqueous cream. Finally hands are massaged for 30 minutes using coconut cream that smells good enough to eat. But fret not aroused taste buds as the last stop is the cool wooden deck where you can enjoy a choice of tea, coffee or juice with a freshly baked muffin. Sit back and enjoy the view of Craighall River while nature’s orchestra of animal life sets the mood. Stretched across the banks of Craighall River, Hands On Retreat is surrounded by 4000m² of lush green trees, vegetation and lawns straight out of a coffee table gardening magazine. Everything from the treatments and food to the fabrics and furniture is inspired by the purity of nature, except for the staff’s uniforms. Just like tired stressed South Africans, bird species flock to Hands On to nest in the tall lush trees. Their conversations and chatter set the mood within the resort, while the tranquillity of the trickling river overflows into every smile, room, deck and rest spot tucked away under canopies of green. This is a two hour in a lifetime opportunity to strip away all masks, stress layers and not your clothes and just be.
