Set in a bamboo grove replete with the calming sounds of bird calls and running water, the five-star Fairlawns Boutique Hotel's elegant and award-winning spa, extends into its own private outdoor space to create a wellness area that will have you wishing you had nowhere else to go anytime soon.
Cascades of water tumble into the gorgeous heated outdoor pool that offers you a view of the Balinese style garden and despite being able to cater to around 18 visitors, the Spa is designed to offer you privacy with treatment rooms nestled into the bamboo grove linked by narrow pathways and others overlooking the gardens and pool.
Great attention has been paid to the details here with many of the design elements having a Balinese origin.
Tucked away into a quiet corner of Morningside in busy Sandton this is the perfect urban escape. The new features include a traditional Japanese sentō bath and private Thai sala (open pavilions), plus signature natural clays and oils used for the wide range of treatments. The spa also offers a range of grooming and revitalising facial treatments and can create gift hampers filled with beauty products used in the spa.
We predict that groups will love the private dining sala with a bar designed for up to 8 guests. There is also a couple’s treatment suite complete with a a double spa bath, and new relaxation areas. Say bliss!
Open 08:00-19:00, treatments start at 09:00. Sundays and public holidays 09:00-17:00.
Price/Additional InfoA full body Swedish massage (60 mins) costs R750.
