Hotel Verde’s Spa Making Sustainable Waves

If you have some time to kill before your long-haul flight takes off from Cape Town International Airport, we highly recommend some spa time at Verde Vita Spa and Wellness Centre at Hotel Verde.

This luxurious spa can be found inside the award-winning Hotel Verde, hailed as Africa’s Greenest Hotel and offers treatments crafted to bring you ultimate calm and tranquility.

The best part? Verde Vita is conveniently located just a stone’s throw from Cape Town International Airport, so you won’t have to venture far to experience pure relaxation.

Here’s what to expect:

The Spa Aesthetic

Building on Hotel Verde’s sustainability journey, the spa is designed to align with the hotel’s eco-friendly principles which help minimise its environmental footprint.

The aesthetic of the spa features curved walls, green wall finishes and arches, all inspired by nature’s organic shapes. They firmly believe in reusing and recycling.

The boutique spa is proudly South African, sourcing locally made furniture, linen and organic and natural products, which is in line  with Verde Vita’s philosophy of ‘Green Life’.

Visitors will find three beautifully appointed treatment rooms: Magnolia, Lavender and Jasmine, named after popular flowering plants.

The single massage treatment rooms can easily be converted into a double treatment room to accommodate couples or besties who want to enjoy their treatments together.


Care for a mani? Pedi? Or a full body massage? The spa offers that and more.

You can enjoy everything from rejuvenating body treatments and facials to soothing massages, all designed to restore balance and nourish the mind, body, and soul.

Visitors can also enjoy eyebrow and lash tinting, eyelash extensions, nail enhancement treatments and waxing, or choose one of their signature spa packages. Treatments start from R120.

Infrared Cabin

 If you have time in between treatments, you must try their state-of-the-art infrared cabin, a revolutionary type of sauna that utilises infrared light to provide a unique and beneficial heating experience.

The infrared cabin reduces energy consumption compared to traditional saunas. While traditional saunas heat the air, the infrared technology in the cabin directly warms your body, promoting detoxification and revitalisation from within.

Some of the health benefits include improved skin tone, circulation, relaxation, pain relief, wound healing, detoxification, and enhanced metabolism.

The session cost R450 for 30 minutes, including 20 minutes inside the cabin and a shower.

Wellness Perks

Post-treatment, escape to the Breathing Room where you can read a book on one of the loungers, sip a cup of tea, or take a nap.

The Breathing Room is designed to help you relax after a treatment and soak in the silence.

As part of the spa experience, you can enjoy the natural hotel pool in the garden surrounded by wetlands and fynbos. This natural hotel pool uses plants to filter the water without harmful chemicals like chlorine.

If you are active, you can make use of the 350-meter jogging trail and the outdoor gym available on the property.

Exciting Plans Ahead

To make these spa treatments accessible to all, the spa has introduced a convenient call-out service, Wellness Weekdays deals, and a Loyalty Card Programme.

The call-out service is for businesses located within a 3-kilometre radius of the spa. Corporate clients can call and reserve specific treatments with a Verde Vita therapist, who will travel to their location to provide the service.

The Loyalty Card will benefit locals, with exciting discounts and complimentary treatments to frequent visitors. To apply, email

“Wellness Weekdays” will offer a variety of special deals for pre-booked treatments during the week from 10 am to 2 pm.
