High Rustenburg Hydro
If you need a break from the rat race, your unhealthy diet, and your cigarettes, this is a wonderful place to take it. The Hydro at Stellenbosch was founded by Cleto Saporetti in 1972. They have five basic principles: Diet to cleanse; Treatments to rejuvinate; Exercise; Relaxation; and Lifestyle Motivation. You're in for some hydrotherapy, massage, exercise and raw food, but the effects of a stay here are glorious. All treatments are administered under medical supervision.
The Hydro is a wonderful place to take care of yourself away from everything. It is about an hour from the Capetown airport; transfers can be arranged that whisk you there after the long flight. The trip takes you through rural landscapes that turn to vineyards. The area is lush and the colors are beautiful of the green vines, the grapes, the red earth. The Hydro is up a long windimg hill in a small facility that is casual. It is a homey atomsphere in an intimate environment where the staff know you and are friendly. The facility has basic rooms; they are furnished simply. This is not a flash health resort or spa. The basics are there, not much more though. There are guided hiles several times a day with cheerful guides. The first two meals of the day are usually taken alone in your room on in a common facility inside or out. Those meals are usually fresh fruit and a beverage such as herbal tea/water. Dinner is communal with a lovely buffet of organic whole grain and fresh ingredients. Fresh baked bread or a baked potato is the stable. There is always a healthy soup. Quantities aren't restricted but should be limited to allow for improved health, if you are trying to lose weight, release toxins, etc. There is an inside pool with water aerobics, yoga, a small gyn with free weights and older machines. Affordable, a delightful retreat.
