The ho­tel

This small but ex­trav­a­gant ho­tel sits right in the heart of Sand­ton, but you’ll never know. Once inside, you’re miles away from the bustling city.

The spa

The award-win­ning spa com­bines heal­ing philoso­phies, mod­ern tech­nol­ogy and lux­u­ri­ous skin care. Ther­a­pists use Elemis, Dermalogica and Guinot prod­ucts, as well as a se­lec­tion of tra­di­tional South East Asian treat­ments with nat­u­ral spices, clays and oils.We love that the spa villa is de­signed to be cou­ple-friendly, which makes for a great hon­ey­moon add-on.

The treat­ment

The spa has three must-try sig­na­ture treat­ments, one of which is the 2 ½-hour Body Treat, a true sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ence. It starts with an aro­matic steam, fol­lowed by a bam­boo scrub us­ing a de­li­cious honey and cof­fee body mud mask – your skin will thank you. After that it’s time for the Ba­li­nese deep tis­sue full body mas­sage with a cool­ing mint body but­ter that will leave you feel­ing fresh and re­vi­talised.

Price: R1 300
