The invigorating and healing qualities of hot mineral waters have been known for centuries. The waters that are found at The Natal Spa have the added benefit of being "Triple Waters" i.e they contain carbonates, chlorides and sulphates and have a temperature, at source, of 40 degrees C.
The historic spring was discovered in the 1880's and since then has provided a constant supply of the beneficial waters.
The Natal Spa was developed around this very valuable resource and has provided solace and refuge for the weary traveller since the 1890's.
The Natal Spa resort and Conference Centre is set in 800 acres of beautiful KZN bushveld. We have access to +/- 4 kms of the magnificent Bivane River that flows through our property and lends a sense of tranquility to our surrounds.
Our gardens are lush with lawns, trees and shrubs and together with or riverine system, these ideal habitats have given rise to the bountiful bird life that we enjoy.
Nearly 100 species of bird have been identified at the Natal Spa and we are home to a pair of breeding Crowned Eagles.
The Spa is known for it's cuisine - our "farm-style" breakfasts are inclusive and you have a choice from our extensive and sumptuous al-a-carte menu in the evening.
A superb carvery buffet is also sometimes on offer.
The Spa is situated on the historic "Battlefields" route - 35 kms from Vryheid in Northern Kwazulu Natal. It is equidistant from Durban and Johannesburg - only 3,5 hours from either centre and ideal for an overnight stop or a weekend getaway.
