Spas
Cape Town and the surrounding winelands area is home to some of the most luxurious and unique spa destinations that the world has to offer.  The city has done a superb job of understanding what makes a world-class spa, and in so doing has produced some truly special places to unwind just that little bit more.  You name it and you are virtually guaranteed to find it here in the Cape, from massage to sauna, from manicures to pedicures, facials to foot massages - a visit to one (or more) of Cape Town’s many spas will ensure that you return from your holiday relaxed and rejuvenated.

Close for comfort
Many of the fine spa offerings are twinned to hotels and wine estates and you may be fortunate enough to find one such palace of relaxation literally on your hotel doorstep.  Most city-based hotels will either offer an in-house spa option or alternatively the management will gladly guide you to a suitable establishment within walking distance or nothing more than a short drive away.  Should you be in the winelands and in need of further relaxation, there are some superb options in all the major wine regions with the added bonus of spectacular views and pleasant rural settings.

Do as the locals do… Relax.
The wellness industry is a hugely popular one in the Cape, encouraged by the wonderful climate and glorious sunshine no doubt.  Relaxation is a way of life here, and so it should come as no surprise that the concept of a spa has taken off in a big way here in the Cape.  That being said it is always wise to make use of a locally recommended establishment, as there really are some special spots that one otherwise might miss out on.   Please contact us for a list of spas that come with the Cape Town Tourism stamp of approval.
