Durban - Gooderson Natal Spa Hot Springs & Leisure Resort is set among ancient giant Cambrian boulders on a 550-hectare stretch of beautiful KwaZulu-Natal bushveld beside the picturesque Bivane River.

It’s well known for its hot mineral waters that rise up along fault fissures and are heated at the source to between 36ºC and 45Cº. These “triple waters” contain healing chlorides, sulphates and carbonates which help relieve a number of ailments and allergies that are often symptomatic of the stresses and strains of modern-day living - just what the doctor ordered.

In addition to enjoying the thermal waters, the Natal Spa Hot Springs & Leisure Resort offers many opportunities for recharging your batteries.
