One&Only Cape Town Spa Is Still N°1!

South Africa, Cape Town, 22 October 2013; ONE&ONLY CAPE TOWN’S award-winning Spa has held onto its crown as the most loved Spa in South Africa for the fourth consecutive year. Loved by locals and hotel guests alike, the state-of-the-art Spa received today the 2013 Spafinder Wellness 365™Readers’ Choice Crystal Award for the favourite Spa in Africa, as well as the award for favourite Spa in South Africa. The Spa also received a Category Award for Best Interior Design. The three awards are welcome recognition for a Spa that has grown from strength to strength since it opened its doors in 2009.

Situated on its own private island at One&Only Cape Town, South Africa’s only urban resort, the Spa boasts unique body therapies incorporating indigenous ingredients as well as the famed ESPA range of beauty products and treatments – the only Spa in South Africa to do so.

It is also home to the only Bastien Gonzalez Studio in South Africa, a factor, which has undoubtedly proved to be a great draw card. With its Afro-Zen design and decor, light-filled public spaces and serene treatment rooms, it’s no surprise that the Spa has been recognised for its interior design too.

The largest in South Africa, the Spa has numerous single and double treatment rooms, an outdoor Yoga pavilion, a selection of sauna and steam room offerings as well as an impressive hi tech Fitness Centre. All visitors to the Spa are encouraged to make the most of the complimentary separate Male and Female Thermal Suites which include a sauna, steam room and hydrotherapy pool facilities before or after treatments.

Recognised as the most respected spa and wellness accolades in the industry, One&Only Cape Town’s Executive Manager for Spa, Fitness and Retail Rosy Read Larsen is understandably thrilled with the achievements her team at the Spa has achieved “each year we set the bar higher than the year before to improve on our offerings, on honing our treatments, to work on innovation and to ensure our service standards are in keeping with the One&Only brand’s reputation and we’re so pleased to know our guests and clients appreciate our dedication”.

Winners of the Spafinder Wellness 365™Readers’ Choice Crystal Awards are determined by thousands of consumers and travel agents who vote in an annual poll. They are the only awards that recognise favourite Spas and Wellness locations across six continents, in 45 countries and in 29 categories.

Today’s awards announcement is perfectly timed, given that the Spa has just launched a host of best treatments for the 2013 / 14 summer season. Visitors to the spa will be able to indulge in the likes of:
