Stel­len­bosch

The ap­peal of the Winelands is nat­u­rally the wine, al­though the craggy moun­tains, rolling vine­yards, el­e­gant ar­chi­tec­ture and cui­sine play fine sup­port­ing roles. Add a spot of mas­sage and you’re as close to he­do­nis­tic heaven as it gets. Lanz­erac of­fers a pack­age that sub­tly com­bines it all. The new spa, which opened early last year, has a pool and Jacuzzi that over­look the Jonker­shoek peaks and spread­ing vines. Up­stairs mani-pedi treat­ment sta­tions and cu­bi­cles share the same view, but while you’re un­der­go­ing an Aro­maVine Pino­tage Mas­sage (or any other of the many op­tions), and hav­ing your ten­sion knots pum­melled, the only sense that mat­ters is touch. Lo­cally pro­duced in Stel­len­bosch, the award-win­ning Ther­aVine, one of the two prod­uct ranges used, is ap­pro­pri­ately based on the pow­er­ful anti-ox­i­dant prop­er­ties of grape­seed oil. At the de­li­ciously de­signed Vi­tal­ity Cor­ner, you can also add a spoon­ful of the pow­dered, magic in­gre­di­ent to your raw juice or smoothie. There’s also a sauna, steam room, mist room, Ra­sul cham­bers, NeoQi Mediq co­coon, gym and treat­ment room for the dis­abled. My best was the post­treat­ment, com­pli­men­tary glass of Lanz­erac MCC.
