A holiday is not a holiday without a little time for pampering, a little soul food. With creature comforts in mind, we’ve come up with a list of top-class spas that promise to relieve the stresses of a jam-packed travel itinerary (or if you’re Capetonian, just the stresses of everyday life) in a host of different ways. Enjoy!

The Ginkgo Spa and Wellness Group prides itself on its intimate therapies, which are modelled on the beauty, healing and rejuvenation secrets of ancient cultures. The group also specialises in the relaxing principles of touch therapy. You’ll find Ginkgo spas at the Erinvale Hotel in Somerset West, the Steenberg Hotel in Constantia and the Winchester Mansions Hotel in Sea Point.

The Sanctuary Spa at the Twelve Apostles Hotel is set in the mountains that made Cape Town famous. A wide range of treatments, including those inspired by the region’s indigenous fynbos, and a Rasul chamber (in which you’ll receive mud treatments) make the spa a popular choice for visitors.

The One&Only spa, located on Dock Road at the V&A Waterfront, promises a rejuvenating pampering session in an oasis of serenity. Touted as the most expansive spa in the Mother City, it offers a variety of customised, holistic experiences, ranging from pure indulgence to unique wellness journeys.

The Camelot Spa Group operates from three locations in the Mother City. The spas offer a wide range of treatments in tranquil environments that are guaranteed to rejuvenate even the weariest of souls.

Learn to cook like a local in the Bo-Kaap

If you’re keen on spending some time in the kitchen, book yourself on a cooking safari and learn to cook secret recipes from one of the local Bo-Kaap ladies in her very own kitchen. This activity is a must-do for any foodie or those interested in getting to know the Cape Malay culture.

Oude Molen Eco-Village and Millstone Farmstall and Café

The Oude Molen Eco-Village is located on the site known as Valkenberg East, near the Cape Town suburb of Pinelands. It’s nestled in large, park-like gardens bordered by sensitive wetlands lining the Black River.

Long Street Baths

Fancy a swim in an historic, circa-1908 swimming pool? If you’re keen for a change from sea and sand, head to the Long Street baths, on the corner of Long and Orange streets in the Cape Town city centre, for an old-world bathe.
