7 Brah­man Hills

Not­ting­ham Road

South African Country Life - - Country Escapes - Tess Pater­son

Just off the Not­ting­ham Road exit on the N3, Brah­man Hills is an ex­cel­lent base for ex­plor­ing the KZN Mid­lands. The ho­tel is fast gain­ing renown as a wed­ding and con­fer­ence venue, but its se­cret weapon is the spa. Sur­rounded by a gor­geous gar­den, the build­ing is a de­light – airy and mod­ern with gen­er­ous port­hole win­dows re­veal­ing the rolling hills be­yond. I start with a head-to-toe ex­fo­li­a­tion (a mix of sugar and rose-gera­nium oil) fol­lowed by a soak in a bub­ble bath that turns my skin to silk. Af­ter that, it’s a full body mas­sage with lo­cally sourced and biodegrad­able prod­ucts that is so ut­terly re­lax­ing I could hap­pily curl up and snooze the af­ter­noon away. For man­i­cures and pedi­cures, a bright com­mu­nal salon runs the length of the build­ing. And for brides-to-be (or any small party) the Tran­quil­lity Lounge or Cham­pagne, Cof­fee and Choco­late Bar are avail­able for pre­treat­ment gath­er­ings, com­plete with prop­erly de­li­cious eats. –
