Less than an hour from Cape Town, overlooking the picturesque Idas Valley on the outskirts of Stellenbosch, The Hydro is a unique Spa that commands breathtaking vistas in every direction. The magnificent Simonsberg mountains are close at hand to the East, while to the West, stately trees and manicured lawns merge into gently sloping orchards and vineyards.
This is the foreground for a view that sweeps towards Table Mountain – a familiar, far-off profile that is regularly silhouetted by spectacular sunsets. Surrounded by such splendour, a quiet awe fills visitors to The Hydro, encouraging levels of relaxation and tranquility that herald ultimate rejuvenation.
Beyond the many massages, wraps and cleansing treatments on offer, The Hydro specialises in stress-eliminating therapies that boost both physical and mental wellbeing. From the tension-releasing ‘Liquid Body’ technique, to the ultra-slow, soothing movements of Aquarelax (a warm water treatment designed to give a profound sense of peace and relaxation) The Hydro offers a unique range of facilities and treatments for every requirement, whether related to health, rejuvenation or the simple need to escape.
During a stay, guests can expect to acquire fresh knowledge as well as healthier habits that enable them to sustain their newly acquired vitality and peace long after they have returned home.
