Brides Essence had the priv­i­lege of at­tend­ing a Spa day at Equinox spa at the Cape Royale Lux­ury Ho­tel & Spa on 5th Septem­ber. This Lux­ury Ho­tel is lo­cated cen­trally, just a 5-minute walk from the Cape Town Sta­dium and the V&A Wa­ter­front. It of­fers a rooftop pool, a gym, Spa, VIP Sky Bar, WIFI and a free shut­tle ser­vice with in a 5km ra­dius.

Equinox Spa, only 5 years old, of­fers guests five ther­apy suites, a re­lax­ation area (pro­vid­ing mag­a­zines, dried fruit and herbal teas) and a sep­a­rate man­i­cure/pedi­cure lounge where clients can re­cline in ease while their feet are buffed and toe­nails painted.

Equinox Spa is a warm and per­son­al­ized space, yet treat­ments bring world-class ex­cel­lence to clients. It draws on sev­eral cul­tural tra­di­tions to en­sure phys­i­cal and spir­i­tual re­ju­ve­na­tion. Equinox Spa’s highly-skilled prac­ti­tion­ers use renowned in­ter­na­tional prod­ucts such as TheraVine, Ther­aNaka, BA­BOR, O.P.I and Nimue.

With its dis­tinc­tive dé­cor, com­bin­ing crisp white with mid­night in­di­gos, a va­ri­ety of treat­ments can be en­joyed rang­ing from an ex­press fa­cial to a day­long re­ju­ve­nat­ing jour­ney.

My spa day ex­pe­ri­ence was in­cred­i­ble, be­ing met at the front door of the ho­tel, the valet’s picked up my car and hud­dled

it to safety. I was ush­ered through the re­cep­tion and taken through to the Equinox Spa where I was in­tro­duced to Sunette van der Merwe, the Equinox Spa man­ager, and Aneeqa Said from Red Car­pet Con­cepts who put this en­tire day to­gether along with her as­sis­tant Melissa Mann. I was shown where to put my things and was sur­prised with a gift in my locker. I was made to feel like royalty. I met a few other ladies who were also in­vited to the Spa day.

We were then shown to the rooftop ter­race where our treat­ments awaited us. A glass of cham­pagne awaited us as we en­tered. We were pre­sented with a va­ri­ety of fin­ger snacks and treats (healthy of course!!!; well most of them any­way). I met a few more ladies and min­gled for a few min­utes be­fore I was whisked away to re­ceive my first treat­ment.

I was pam­pered and given the amaz­ing Ul­tra Vine Ad­vance Cel­lu­lar Gold fa­cial by TheraVine. This treat­ment would nor­mally take about 90 min. The Ul­traVine tm Ad­vance anti-age­ing con­cept
