What: A results-driven spa on a working wine-estate hotel. Facilities run the gamut from an outdoor 72-foot heated pool with a spa bath to a Pilates and yoga studio, and treatments masquerade as indulgent rituals.
The look: Treatment suites (three with hydro-massage tubs and shady massage terraces) have calming natural tones and textures.
Who goes: Post-safari weary travelers, wine estate wives, and gourmands doing damage control (it's the Cape Winelands, after all).
The treatment: The vanilla-enriched pure indulgence body exfoliation and wrap for dry, sun-kissed skin is like a full-body facial.
P.S.: This isn't a dash-in, dash-out kind of place: Build in time to admire the hotel's art collection and stay for lunch.
