10/10 Exceptional

Perfect place for recharging and forgetting about work! Friendly staff, wonderful rooms, great food, and the perfect place to escape from work! The rooms are spacious and well decorated, very comfortable and peaceful. The food was great, and even though I enjoy all of the unhealthy types of food, the gluten-free/sugar-free/super healthy options were truly wonderful. the spa has some really great options so you can choose a different treatment each day. Mountain bikes are available, but the roads are not great for riding on when vehicles fly by on the dirt road doing 60 kph. I would ask that the staff find farms in the area that would be willing to allow cycling on their roads instead of asking the customer to ride up random places and ask. The evenings are peaceful and enjoying a glass of wine on the patio before dinner was very enjoyable. Definitely going back again!

Sante Wellness Retreat & Spa has the most amazing world class day spa, the treatments are exceptional. The staff are all welcoming and very professional. The accommodation was luxurious, with every need catered for. The grounds and the views of the Drakenstein mountain range exceptional. This is a 5 star Retreat - will definitely return for a longer stay. Highly recommended.

8/10 Very good

amazing ambience
Coming to Sante on dirt road indicated something very quiet and special and it was. beautiful place, tasteful decorated on a big land and beautiful view. Very big room, romantic bathroom and balcony with dream view. We just laved it. Suggestion for management, do something more about food, as people who stay at your place probably would like to eat at spot. Very simple selection for breakfast: coconut yoghurt with fruit, eggs and boring, but probably healthy muffin. Same breakfast each morning. We took dinner only once, again seems like same menu each day and quality and taste not fitting to Sante` niveau.
