For my birthday hubby took the day off and we decided to spend the morning at the gorgeous newly refurbished Lanzerac Spa in the beautiful Stellenbosch Winelands, and what a treat it was! Walking through the doors, not knowing what to expect, we were warmly greeted by the staff in the contemporary style reception area.
This was the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to take that much-needed Time Out to RELAX in the beautiful Stellenbosch Winelands. The Lanzerac Spa offers a place of luxury, restoration and sheer indulgence in a picturesque setting on the estate with views of the vineyards through full-length glass windows. As part of the large-scale refurbishment of the grand and historic Lanzerac Wine Estate, the Lanzerac Spa has been completely rebuilt and reimagined. The newly redesigned building offers first-class amenities in a stunning setting.
After our welcome we were shown to the changing rooms where we dressed in robes and locked our bags in the secure lockers and were then escorted upstairs to the treatment rooms. We started with a 60-minute Swedish massage in the couples room, followed by a 60-minute hydration facial. It was absolute BLISS. The Spa is equipped with a heated indoor pool and separate jacuzzi, perfect for after treatment relaxation so ensure to pack in your swimming costume (no nudist policy applies 🙂 It was the perfect space to connect with hubby after treatments in our relaxed states as we indulged in the Spa’s first-class amenities. It truly was incredible.
The treatment rooms and facilities have been transformed to offer a Winelands retreat experience with a distinctly luxurious feel. Large-scale windows allow natural light to spill in while enjoying the spectacular views. The welcoming and spacious interior has a natural yet contemporary feel to the space, with layered textures and colours prevailing.
There are seven therapy rooms, including a couple’s treatment room and disabled room, four mini manicure and pedicure treatment stations, two relaxation areas, two Rasul chambers complete with sensation shower, an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna and steam rooms, and mist rooms to help guests cool down.
A highlight of the Lanzerac Spa is the newly acquired NeoQi® cocoon, a complete system for detoxing, energising and relaxing the body, which is used in conjunction with the Spa’s TheraVine™ Thalaso Therapy. The Lanzerac Spa prides itself in excellence and the Spa’s health and skincare specialists are highly qualified and professional.
The Lanzerac Spa is a sensational experience offering a five-star experience and complete relaxation. This was definitely the best way to spend my birthday with my hubby. We left feeling completely relaxed and pampered and ready to take on the world!
