Three generations of holistic health care

Hoogland is a family owned and run Health Hydro, established in 1977 by Abraham Kruger and his wife, Annette. It is now the 3rd generation Krugers and their dedicated staff who are caring for guests, many of whom have become like family over the years.

More than a Spa - Much more

Over the years the word spa has been used extensively in South Africa to describe many things, some of them not really living up to what you expect. Have a look at the International Spa Association's definitions of different types of Spa. Hoogland will fit the bill for as a Destination Spa, a Medical Spa and a Mineral Spring Spa, but we are also much more than that.

Some people describe Hoogland as a Health Farm because of the beautiful setting in the picturesque Shurveberg hills, some people describe us as a health retreat because it is one of the few places you can visit on your own and regroup naturally, and to some people it is a home away from home.

Hoogland is a peaceful haven where people from all walks of life come to manage their health and wellbeing holistically in a homely yet professional environment.

Integrative wellness in a comforting environment

A variety of supporting therapies and therapists, including registered medical practitioners and complimentary healers, help to enhance integrative mental, emotional and physical wellness.

Nourishing, balanced buffet-style meals, nurturing staff, soothing Hydro therapies and the ageless peace of the rocky Schurveberg Mountains in our dedicated nature reserve, makes Hoogland an unparalleled retreat.

Manage stress, maintain a strong, healthy body and instill a positive attitude. Within an hour’s drive from the centre of Pretoria or Johannesburg, enter a realm that will surprise you. Tucked away in a valley resembling a giant crater, opening onto the picturesque Hennops River Valley, Hoogland Health Hydro was one of the pioneers of natural health promotion in South Africa and innovators in maintaining that sparkle so typically overwhelmed by the demands of the ‘real world’.

Many of the holistic medial treatments initiated at Hoogland since the 1970s have since been imitated by spa’s around the country. In order to maintain the in-depth experience of the original, Hoogland still integrates these as well as pampering therapeutic massage and beauty therapies into an environment of exquisite natural beauty and backs it up with round-the clock professional medical care.

Hiking among the numerous species of antelope in the dedicated nature reserve, breathing the air freshened by indigenous flora and bathing in superior mineral water form the backbone of a nature cure which enhances the professional treatments. Knowing you are going to sleep where you woke up puts the finishing touches on an experience guaranteed to make a real difference.
