If a frosty winter has left you with more than just cold feet, it’s the ideal time to indulge in a little break from reality, and what could be more relaxing than a steamy pamper session at a luxurious spa? This romantic treat at The Spa at The Twelve Apostles Hotel is the perfect escape.
Rasul (R300 for 30 mins, R550 for 60 mins) and B-Harmonised Massage (R760 for 60 mins) per person
Pampering begins with a delightful complimentary refreshment bar, complete with fruit juice, cool mineral water and a selection of light snacks like nuts, juicy fresh fruit and health muffins.
After walking through the magical, cavernous realms of the tranquil spa area (reminiscent of a secret Turkish bath in times gone by) couples are led to the spa’s Traditional Arabic Rasul Chamber to embark on the first part of their journey – a warming and rejuvenating Arabic cleansing ritual, which takes place in this private wellness hot spot.
Enjoy a self-application of sweet sugar scrub to buff away dull, tired skin before coating your bodies lovingly from neck to toe in a detoxifying, mineral-rich mud. This hardens during the initial dry heat of the treatment to draw out impurities from the skin and body. Treat your hair to a nourishing mask and sweep on a pampering face mask to complete the indulgence. Then lie back, relax and enjoy the warmth of the steam as it fills the chamber, cleanses your body and revitalises your soul. Billowing steam softens the mud and masks during the second part of the Rasul session before a trickling rain shower washes it all away to reveal soft limbs, silky locks and radiant skin.
Complete your romantic escape by indulging in one of the spa’s three signature cocooning massage rituals in one of their seven beautifully-appointed treatment rooms. Book a couples room and savour the romance a little longer with a B | Purified (R1600 for 120 mins), B | Together (R1000 for 90 mins) or B | Harmonised (R760 for 60 mins, read our full review here) massage treatment.
Before you check back in to reality, make sure to spare enough time to linger a little longer and enjoy complimentary use of the spa’s beautiful facilities, including a quiet relaxation lounge with a selection of herbal teas, heated spa pool, cool plunge pool and floatation tank, where you can lie back and let your cares drift away in the warm salty water.
The Result You’re sure to leave this tranquil oasis feeling warmed from top to toe, utterly relaxed and ready to take on the next chapter together, with a new appreciation for your love and relationship.
