Hands On Retreat 4-star Guesthouse & Spa in Craighall, Johannesburg is a wonderful option for Joburgers and visitors who want the option of stepping out of the bustle of the city into a tranquil environment, without having to make their way to the countryside.

During a recent visit, I was just once again reminded how important it is to have a space where you can escape the hectic pace of Jozi for an hour or two. Situated on a wooded property near Johannesburg Botanical Garden, this upscale guesthouse and spa is the perfect spot for picnics, proposals and anniversary celebrations.

Not to mention dates with the girls and pre-wedding get-togethers with your troupe of bridesmaids. The moment the gate closes behind you at Hands On, you are swept into the dappled green calm of their intimate willow-lined property.

This cosy destination is the very antithesis of a big, commercial spa - everything is contained and personal.

The owner is extremely detail-oriented and takes great pride in creating a welcoming space for women and promoting the holistic wellbeing of every individual who crosses her threshold.

Best of all - they offer frequent specials that are promoted on their social media channels, so follow them on Facebook to make the most of these exclusive offers.

Hands On Retreat gets a big thumbs up from the Date Night Ideas team, so make a point of visiting the next time you're in Sandton and in need of some TLC.
