I had a hot stone massage which was sublime. It was a full 75 minutes long, and all the oils that were used were heated as well making the experience even better. The massage bed had an electric blanket on it, so even that was warm! Perfect for a cold Winter afternoon. My therapist was really skilled, and gave me some good suggestions for body products that would be suited to me.
Right next door, there is Aurelia’s restaurant. The food is nothing fancy (think burgers, sandwiches etc) but the high tea spread looked fantastic! At only R85 per person, I think it is a steal. The restaurant has a really nice view of the gardens as well, making it a perfect summer spot.
