Sante Winelands Voted one of the ‘World’s Most Fabulous Spas’

Santé Winelands, South Africa’s award winning hotel and spa, has received another international accolade with its listing as one of the ‘World’s Most Fabulous Spas’, in a new hardcover book entitled ‘Spa’ - the latest offering from Taschen publishers in the USA. It is the only spa on the African continent to be selected.
Situated in the heart of the historic and picturesque Paarl-Franschhoek valley, a mere 45 minutes from Cape Town, the Santé Winelands Hotel & Wellness Centre is the epitome of luxury and style as a 5-star, world-class retreat.Ê

The Santé Winelands Hotel & Wellness Centre opened at the end of 2003, and is South Africa’s first destination spa that sets out to redefine the wellness experience in this country, dedicated entirely to health and lifestyle. Operated by Southern Sun - the leading hotel operator in the Southern Hemisphere - it is a perfect fit within Southern Sun’s new portfolio of upscale destinations - The Southern Sun Collection.

Santé Winelands features a five star deluxe hotel and conference centre, as well as South Africa’s first Santé Spa & Wellness Centre, which was voted one of the ‘16 Best Spa’s on Earth’ by UK Elle magazine (May 2004) and Condé Nast Traveller Italy Hot List Top Spa Resort (October 2004).

Offering the world’s best in terms of treatments and modern trends, the Santé Wellness Centre is the only centre in South Africa - and significantly, was only the second in the world - to offer Vinotherapy, a specialised treatment that offers grape seed therapy, in the midst of the vineyards. A selection of rejuvenating spa packages are available, ranging from 1 - 5 day customised programmes.

The Santé Winelands Hotel & Wellness Centre offers luxurious, world-class accommodation options and two specialised restaurants that explore the wellness revolution, and the move towards organically grown produce and healthier eating. Sommelier Restaurant serves gourmet cuisine and award winning South African wines, while the Wellness Restaurant offers a healthy detox menu.
