Zevenwacht farm to re­build spa

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

ZEVENWACHT Wine Farm near Kuils River has an­nounced that it is to re­build the African day spa that was razed to the ground af­ter a fire last month.

Zevenwacht manag­ing di­rec­tor Harold John­son says the Mang­wanani Day Spa had be­come one of the pop­u­lar at­trac­tions at Zevenwacht and the farm is de­ter­mined to re-es­tab­lish it as soon as pos­si­ble. Lo­cated high on a hill, the spa en­joyed sweep­ing views across the vine­yards of False Bay, Ta­ble Bay, Ta­ble Moun­tain and fur­ther afield to the dis­tant Fran­schhoek Moun­tains, mak­ing i t an i dylli c lo­ca­tion for a re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion of body and spirit.

Mang­wanani re­ceived the pres­ti­gious Day Spa of the Year award a nd o f f e r e d t r a d i t i o nal Af r i c a n treat­ments in an en­vi­ron­ment of in­dul­gent lux­ury.

“Vis­i­tors came from all over to en­joy the spa. Ob­vi­ously it will be sorely missed by our reg­u­lar guests and tourists, but we hope to start work soon and cre­ate an even more lux­u­ri­ous venue on the farm,” says John­son.

Al­though the ex­act cause of the fire re­mains un­known, it is be­ing thor­oughly in­ves­ti­gated and all the nec­es­sary pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sures will be in­cor­po­rated in the new fa­cil­ity.

De­spite the loss of the spa, Zevenwacht re­ported an ex­cel­lent De­cem­ber sea­son, with vis­i­tor num­bers equalling record years.

“This was par­tic­u­larly pleas­ing in view of the doom and gloom that was fore­cast for the tourist sea­son,” s a y s J o h n s o n . “ F o r t u n a t e l y, Zevenwacht is a fam­ily-friendly farm with many ac­tiv­i­ties in ad­di­tion to wine tast­ing. Our pic­nic bas­kets did very well, and our restau­rant and the ho­tel and chalet book­ings were also pleas­ing.”
