Our secluded oasis in Pretoria – a retreat for overnight guests and day visitors alike

Posted on Wed January 17, 2018 in Facilities.

Whether you’re a day visitor in need of a relaxing spa treatment, a business traveller in need of a place to clear your mind, or a group of people in search of a space to have an intimate function – we’d like to invite you to our little oasis in Waterkloof, Pretoria. Make our secluded courtyard garden with its wonderful amenities your retreat for the day, for the weekend, or for however long you need.

The wonders of a garden

“There are many paths leading to a garden and many experiences awaiting those who venture in. No matter what your motive—whether to grow healthy, delicious food; spend time outdoors feeling more alive than your desk job allows; help save the planet; find relaxation, solace, or healing; meet your neighbors; get your hands in the sweet earth; or discover for yourself just how abundant and generous nature can be—a garden rarely disappoints. It’s a magnet for life in all its quirky, beautiful forms.”

― Jane Shellenberger

We want our oasis to offer something for everyone – even if it’s just a break from the hustle and bustle of Pretoria.

Your private room at Mont d'Or Bohemian House has its own view over our little green landscape and with only 10 rooms on the premises, you’ll have plenty of privacy to wander around in it. Discover everything from neatly trimmed hedges to wild bushy sections, to hidden water features and statues in our small, yet lavish courtyard garden. With lush trees surrounding you and an abundance of birdlife, you’ll find it hard to believe that you’re in Pretoria. That's what makes this spot in Waterkloof so special.

If you follow the path along the secluded courtyard garden you’ll reach our beautiful pool area with its aura of tranquillity. The deep-blue pool with its sparkling clean water and the luxurious loungers and couches around it offer an open invitation to relax and unwind. Feel the hold of time slip away as you close your eyes and clear your mind of everything except for the soft, soothing birdsong coming from the garden.

Getting into a relaxed state of mind

We know it’s not easy for everyone to get into this relaxed state of mind. Luckily – just a few steps away – you’ll find all the help you need in the form of an array of spa treatments, all provided by our team of skilled masseuses. Whether you’re a day guest or staying over; whether you’re a woman or a man; whether you need help with your neck and shoulders or your feet – our attentive team will make sure you get what you need and that you leave our little oasis feeling relaxed and recharged.

So, whether you need a massage, time to relax at the pool, or you just want to change your business trip scenery from grey hotel lobby to lush courtyard garden – our oasis in Pretoria is at your disposal. Get in touch now to book a stay with us, or take a look at our specials to see how you can save on accommodation and spa treatments.

We hope that this blog will inspire you to spend more time in nature – no matter how small a piece. We’d like to leave you with this quote by Peter Zumthor:

“Every time I imagine a garden in an architectural setting, it turns into a magical place. I think of gardens I have seen, that I believe I have seen, that I long to see, surrounded by simple walls, columns, arcades or the facades of buildings – sheltered places of great intimacy where I want to stay for a long time.”
