The Spa at the Twelve Apostles Hotel in Cape Town will relaunch in August with a completely fresh identity and new management.
The Spa’s neutral palette and natural look will be in keeping with the award-winning spas at sister properties The Oyster Box in Umhlanga and Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Wellness Retreat in the Cederberg, which are all operated and managed by The Red Carnation Collection as a spa brand.
The new Spa will be dedicated to restoring beauty and balance through individual treatments and Spa journeys, personalised for each guest by skilled therapists using Elemis and Dermalogica products. “Our commitment to wellbeing focuses on holistic principles, combining ancient wisdom with modern expertise,” says Toni Tollman, designer and family member of the award-winning, family owned Red Carnation Hotel Collection of luxury boutique hotels.
In The Apostles Touch, a back-to-nature journey of profound relaxation will include using stones from Table Mountain for a hot stone foot massage, handpicked fynbos for a back of the body exfoliation and shells from the Atlantic Ocean for a lava shell massage.
In the hedonistic Sunset Mountain Serenade, start with a champagne picnic and exult in the breath-taking views of the ocean and the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range before surrendering to a touch point foot ritual and a 90-minute massage in the shaded mountain gazebos.
Facials, designed to revitalise and regenerate the delicate facial area, are done by highly trained therapists. A spa menu for men includes the Gentleman’s Exclusive Facial, waxing and the “Manli Cure” to keep hands and arms in perfect condition.
The Spa’s new calming white and crystal interior will have seven superbly equipped treatment rooms for dual and single treatments, a hydrotherapy bath and rain showers, a Rasul Chamber for traditional cleansing rituals using steam and mud, a Perfect Finish Salon for manicures and pedicures, Wild Lanyana Aromatherm Room for hydrotherapy treatments or a Vichy Shower, plunge pools, a floatation pool and a Tranquillity Lounge.
Several spa packages are available including the “Babymooner” to spoil expectant mothers and “Spa-ties”, for groups to enjoy a range of treatments and facilities. Unique packages including catering and cocktails can also be designed to individual specification.
A health bar will be stocked with complimentary nutritious fruit nibbles, freshly-squeezed juices and herbal teas. Delicious light fare can also be ordered off Executive Chef Henrico Grobbelaar’s spa menu.
The current spa will close on June 1 for eight weeks of renovation. Treatments will still be available in a temporary spa in an interleading two bedroom suite during this period.
