We recently sent one of our contributors, Carmen to review Fordoun. Here’s what she had to say about the experience:

“My husband and I had an amazing romantic stay over at Fordoun Hotel & Spa. We were made to feel like royalty and everything was of the highest standard.


When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed with refreshments and then shown to our suite. We settled in and got ready for our treatments at the spa before being guided to a beautiful room in the spa that opened out onto a private patio.

Our first treatment was a couples Royal Zulu Bath followed by a Couples Ndlovu Deep Tissue and head massage, leaving us both feeling so relaxed. We then spent half an hour in the floatation pool which has a high concentration of epsom salts – where we felt even more relaxed. We ended off the experience with swimming in an indoor swimming pool and sat in the jacuzzi. After all the pampering, we had time before supper to go for a walk to the lake and my hubby did a spot of fishing.

Supper was absolutely out of this world, from starters to mains and desserts… It was a real treat! After all the delicious food, we waddled back to our suite to sleep.

The next morning when I went to the bathroom, I opened the window to see what the weather was like (at 5 am) and there was a little buck looking back at me – what a truly awe inspiring sight!

After a delicious breakfast spread, we enjoyed the last of our time before heading back to Durban.

All in all, the staff were very friendly and professional and I highly recommend Fordoun to anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of busy day life, or anyone wanting to spend time with the love of their lives and be pampered and treated to delicious food.”
