Fordoun Hotel & SpaNottingham Road, KwaZulu-Natal Midlands
Fordoun combines the attractions of an upmarket boutique hotel and spa with a top class conference, wedding and event destination and a superior restaurant. Fordoun caters for resident guests of the hotel as well as day visitors to the spa and, from Thursdays to Sunday lunch, to members of the public wishing to dine at the restaurant Skye.
Fordoun Spa boasts a team of expert personal trainers, masseurs, nutritionists and beauticians, and features internationally proven healthcare and beauty treatments, including the rasul (a Turkish steam and clay treatment room), a saline Floatation pool, heated swimming pool, a gymnasium, sauna, steam room, vichy shower, hydrotherapy room and a couples' treatment suite with hydrotherapy bath.
Fordoun is located in the rolling grasslands of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, where the air is crystal-clear and smog and traffic are echoes of another lifestyle.
Guests can enjoy gentle walks around the grounds, visit the herb garden of Dr Ndlovu, or ride on mountain bikes or horseback along designated routes through the Fordoun estate.
Fly-fishing is available on three still waters on Fordoun, or, in season, in the pristine waters of the nearby Bushman's River. Golf is available at the magnificent Bosch Hoek course, a few minutes away in Balgowan.

Part of the holistic relevance of everything at Fordoun has led to the development of the Fordoun signature range of products, created in conjunction with Dr Elliot Ndlovu, herbalist and ethnobotanist, who is a Sangoma and Inyanga, as well as a director of Fordoun Spa.
Under his guidance, a number of products have been carefully created from indigenous traditional healing plants, especially for Fordoun. The range includes soaps, gels, protective clays, oils, bath salts, lotions and creams, and sprays, based on the theme of the seven Chakras and the seven colours of the rainbow. A luxury Eau de Toilette range, Ma'Ndlovu for women and BabaNdlovu for men, has been designed for both the local and export markets.
Fordoun will also make use of other exclusive international beauty treatment ranges, including products by Germaine du Cappucini, Repechage and La Culla.
The conference centre at Fordoun Spa, Hotel & Restaurant caters for up to forty delegates, with quality equipment on hand and all the resources and facilities of the spa and restaurant nearby.
