South African cities became more and more surprising. Night life, shopping, restaurants, culture, and a strong economy growth. Is it possible to enjoy a moment of relax among this feeling of excitement? In Cape Town and Johannesburg it is, considering that these cities offer a number of spa and wellness centers.

Experiencing a South African Spa is a unique and enchanting opportunity, especially when it comes to receiving massages in the bush as you are surrounded by an aromatic and fragrant atmosphere.

Vinotherapy represents a new and popular therapy: a creative treatment that involves the use of skins, stalks, and seeds of grapes. The antioxidant properties of the grapes are excellent in detoxifying the body and skin as well as to fight free radicals.

South African vinotherapy makes use of plants that – back in the past – belonged to ancient South African rituals and ceremonies; nowadays, instead, these plants are used to boost the beauty and wellbeing of the skin. Africology is one of the most widely used brands.

Cape Town is the perfect destination if you wish to enjoy a number of wellness centers: Chanel Bettison Beauty Concept Store is the perfect place to pamper your body before a special occasion; One & Only offers three different treatments (relaxing, detox, and energizing), while Mount Nelson offers a wide selection of massages (focusing on single parts of the body), as well as face treatments.

Johannesburg – the most crowded city of the country – offers a wide choice of wellness centers that provide customized experiences. Amani African Spa offers treatments that follow the oldest South African traditions; Da Vinci Day Spa & Gym offers natural treatments, while Vusalela is an authentic sanctuary of relax and eternal youth.

Lastly, along the Garden Route – the scenic panoramic drive that takes from Porth Elizabeth to Cape Town – it is possible to enjoy some moments of relax. Pezula is located in one of the three most beautiful beaches of the whole country; this Spa offers hot stones and volcanic stones massages, heated water massage bed, as well scented candles treatments (available for couples only).
