By now, you’ve probably learnt how to survive being at home with your family 24/7, and you’re actually starting to enjoy preparing three square meals a day. Perhaps you’ve even discovered a new love of cleaning? All the hard work involved in these household activities definitely needs to be rewarded in some way. We’re already dreaming up ways to celebrate once we’ve made it through these tough times, and a visit to one of these spas is at the top of our list.
Just imagine it… plush robes and cosy slippers, mini sweet treats and warming teas, calming music in a tranquil setting, massages with fragrant oils… Sounds like paradise, doesn’t it?
Read on for our selection of three spas we’re definitely going to visit once the lockdown is over.
Amani is a group of spas in wonderful locations across the country, and the Amani Spa at The Houghton Hotel is the group’s flagship wellness facility. Settled in the midst of Joburg’s urban jungle, it’s an oasis of peace and quiet. Amani Spa boasts numerous state-of-the-art facilities, including the Grand Rasul treatment, and stunning indoor and outdoor pools. We love the Rose Salt Crystal Ritual, a massage that uses coconut oil and Himalayan rose salt to rejuvenate the skin and boost the body’s immunity.
Conveniently located at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, Life Day Spa will be a treat for out-of-province travellers and Capetonians alike. A trip to this spa is one steeped in pure luxury, and you won’t want to leave! The facials are a real spoil, as you can choose from a wide range of premium local and international skincare brands like Optiphi, La Prairie and Nimue. We recommend the 30-minute Floatation Therapy. One session in the Life Day floatation pool equates to four hours of undisturbed sleep! The water is heated to body temperature and has a high salt content, allowing you to become weightless, relieving skeletal tension and promoting mental relaxation.

We love this gem located just over an hour from Joburg in the town of Hartbeespoort; which is surrounded by bush. We’re relishing at the idea of being able to take a short road trip to enjoy a day of relaxation and bliss, which is exactly what awaits you at Cradle Health Spa. Take a look on their website for a whole host of packages to suit every need. There’s even a pensioners package!
