THE LUXE WELL­NESS RE­TREAT

De­laire Graff Es­tate, Ban­hoek

Elle Decoration (South Africa) - - TRAVEL -

Vis­its to Lau­rence Graff’s Cape Winelands jewel have al­ways had a cer­tain hook, be it en­joy­ing a glass of the es­tate’s Caber­net Franc Rosé or Coastal Cu­vee Sau­vi­gnon Blanc with a side of freshly shucked oys­ters or tak­ing in the art col­lec­tion and din­ing on the ter­race or at the highly rated eatery In­do­chine.

While the spa has long been a favourite pam­per­ing spot for those in the know, its re­cent re­fresh and a re­vived menu care of its sea­soned new man­ager, Hilde­gard Carstens, is set to po­si­tion well­ness at the fore of the De­laire Graff ex­pe­ri­ence. Hav­ing worked at some of the best spas in the world, Carstens’ fo­cus is on holis­tic heal­ing, with reiki, re­flex­ol­ogy and chakra­bal­anc­ing tech­niques wo­ven into a series of heav­enly rit­u­als, us­ing top beauty prod­ucts by the likes of Dr Bar­bara Sturm and Ter­res d’Afrique. Fol­low a treat­ment with a dip in the 22m in­fin­ity pool or lan­guish for a while in the re­vamped Swedish sauna and steam room. De­cem­ber will see the open­ing of six new Su­pe­rior Lodges and the knock­out Owner’s Villa, de­signed by De­laire Graff favourite David Collins Stu­dio. de­laire.co.za
