Spa in a scented garden

If you’re lucky enough to be in the Cape any time soon, we’ve found the most sensational spoil imaginable.

The Steenberg Hotel and Spa in the Constantia Wine Valley has just introduced a tranquil, outdoor treatment area in the scented garden under the oaks. Surrounded by a medley of gardenias, pennyroyals, sweet viburnum, lavender and citrus, and a fresh bouquet garni of fragrant herbs – think mint, rosemary and thyme we’re talking real time out to reconnect, unwind and relax with one of the treatments … a restoring massage, mani or pedi or (hello Valentines’ Day) one of the couples experiences.

While you’re there, pick up a bottle of one of the spa’s own signature blend of essential oils – a combination of helichrysum, geranium, cedar wood, cypress and petitgrain.
For bookings, ring 021-712-7481.
