As the year winds down into the frantic run up to Christmas and holidays, our thoughts turn to relaxing … and vacations. Where better to de-stress than under the beautiful blue skies of Cape Town, South Africa?
Choosing a spa hotel makes the perfect getaway option, especially in a destination as varied as Cape Town, with a choice that extends from spas set amongst the vines to the majestic beauty of the Twelve Apostles Mountains; spectacular ocean views to serene international yacht marinas.
Take the Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa – the setting is unrivalled! Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, some 15 minutes out of the centre of Cape Town and a few minutes away from the golden sands of Clifton and Camp’s Bays’ beaches, the oasis of calm almost eclipses the stunning sunsets.
Indulge yourself in the luxury this award winning hotel offers its guests where you can be as active as you wish, perhaps taking a hike through the mountain trails surrounding the resort, swimming in the infinity pool or playing a round of golf.
That’s the trouble here! The decision as to what to do today will become your most difficult choice of the day. There is so much to see and to do within a stone’s throw – it’s a question of how busy you wish to be.
If it’s relaxation and peace that is top of your agenda then the spa is definitely one to put at the top of the list! Cut into the surrounding rock, the tranquillity massages your senses whilst the treatments, many based on the indigenous fynbos flora, restore the balance of life.
For one of the most enviable locations in Cape Town, you couldn’t get much better that the Cape Grace Hotel. I want to say nestled, but there is nothing nestling about the Cape Grace, in the glorious Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. It is magnificent – sophisticated and elegant. Presidents and Royalty have stayed here, guaranteed absolute privacy, sumptuous luxury and spectacular views across The Waterfront.
The pampering treatments are designed to relax and rejuvenate and as the spa is situated on the top floor, the views of Table Mountain, the yacht marina and Cape Town itself are second to none.
Here the treatments are based on an African theme, weaving in the mysteries of the African heritage to deliver your exact needs. Body balancing, stress relief or pain management; you will be cherished no matter which treatment you decide upon.
Of course, there is one more spa hotel in Cape Town that I simply can’t miss out on – the One & Only Cape Town.
The name alone pretty much says it all! Set apart from the rest of the hotel complex on its own island, the spa is impressive. Escape the worries of the world and sink gently into the totally rejuvenating experience that awaits you.
Take one of their journeys to unwind, restore or elevate your soul, equipping you to face the world once more.
