Did you know?
The Brazilian football team that played in the 2010 World Cup stayed at the Fairway Hotel and Golf Resort.
The Fairway Spa, just a couple of kilometres away from one of Randburg’s major shopping malls (Cresta), is a world away from city chaos. You’ll find this oasis on the restful fairways of the Randpark Golf Park. It forms part of the Fairway Hotel and Golf Resort, a slick five-star property that has been personally recommended by Graham Cooke, president and founder of The World Travel Awards.
As a golf resort spa the Fairway reflects the colours of its surrounds: green fairways and blue water features in its calming decor. Relaxation is aided by indoor and outdoor lounging areas, and a café-style bistro. With all the facilities expected of a modern day spa and 11 treatment rooms, it is able to accommodate corporate groups or pamper parties, bridal showers and the like. It’s also a great option for partners of avid golfers who don’t share the love of the green.
There’s an accent on hydrotherapy treatments at this Gauteng spa, with saunas, a Rasul chamber, a Kneipp pool (a cold water pool beneficial to blood circulation), flotation tank, steam rooms , a jacuzzi seating eight and a swimming pool.
Other facilities include laser hair removal and skin rejuvenation, an 8-seater pedicure station, slimming treatments, massages, facials, body wraps and bronzing, professional make-up, and hair styling at a salon called Hair @ The Fairway.
Worth special mention is the Romantic Couples Overnight Spa Journey. This package begins with a welcome drink, some time spent in the sauna, followed by the refreshing experience of the Rasul chamber where the use of indigenous clay is combined with steam and a soft, rain-like shower. Thereafter couples relax in the jacuzzi and flotation pool, before enjoying a full body massage and a hair and scalp treatment. Accommodation in the luxurious Fairway Hotel and a full English breakfast is included.
