About Hands on Retreat
Great location and best value for money ... We are centrally situated in the upmarket "Parks" area of Northern Johannesburg and are within easy access to the surrounding suburbs of Rosebank, Sandton, Hyde Park and Randburg, whether by car or public transport. Located a short 10 minute drive from the Sandton and Rosebank Gautrain stations. We recommend the use of Uber taxi services and offer a special for first time users. Transfers can be arranged from OR Tambo, however the quickest option is to use the Gautrain.
Its back to nature here: the setting is a park-like garden with a flowing lawn, abundant bird life, lots of tall trees and its own river flowing through it.
Guests have access to both sides of the river to enjoy the abundant bird life, meditate or just relax and enjoy nature at one of the many rest spots dotted around the garden. Weather permitting, refreshments are served on the outdoor veranda with its spectacular view.
There are six double en-suite rooms have queen size beds, private garden access and small kitchenettes ideal for long stays for the discerning business or leisure traveller. All rooms have a separate bath and shower. There is 1 wheelchair friendly room.
