A Luxurious sanctuary of tranquility
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
