Watching whales, relaxing beach walks and an outdoor massage. Book us in!
Living mindfully is all about making well thought-out decisions about everything … including – and perhaps most importantly – about your well-being. And after the last few months of stress, tension and uncertainty, we think taking some time out to restore mind, body and soul is well worth it.
This Wellness Road Trip with Cape Country Routes, which goes from Paarl up the South Coast to the De Hoop Nature Reserve, sounds perfect.
It starts in Paarl, with its range of cultural and historical attractions, then continues along the exceptionally scenic Cape South Coast, where the indigenous Cape fynbos meets the cold seas at the southernmost tip of Africa, and on to the De Hoop Nature Reserve. This is a natural wonder of unsurpassed beauty and a favourite destination for hikers, cyclists, bird watchers, whale watchers and seekers of natural beauty.
For enhancing wellness, peace of mind, calm and tranquillity, spend one night at the Cascade Country Manor in Paarl with its beautiful views of the olive orchards, vineyards and mountains and indulge in a variety of treatments at the in-house spa or relax in the pool area, or take a walk to the waterfall. Other activities include wine tastings, wine tours and hiking.
The next night is spent at The Arniston Spa Hotel, set in one of the Cape’s most exquisite locations next to an old fishing village, surrounded by pristine beaches and nature reserves. Here you can enjoy panoramic views of the unspoilt ocean and endless beaches, take long, relaxing beach walks, visit local wineries, indulge in soothing in-house spa treatments, and much more.
Your final two nights will be at the De Hoop Collection. The De Hoop Spa is an oasis of calm – one that offers the ultimate escape with a variety of revitalising beauty and body treatments … think a range of relaxing massages to soothe the body and mind, as well as a selection of facials, manicures, pedicures and grooming services. Other activities include an eco river cruise, walks through herds of eland and bontebok to the ocean, a visit the Cape vulture colony and whale-watching (in season).
