Revitalise mind and body at One&Only Cape Town Spa

One&Only Cape Town Spa is celebrating the summer season with an irresistible line-up of new ESPA therapies for the face and body. The new treatment menu features techniques that combine the power of touch therapy with sensory testing and results-driven products to create highly personalised spa experiences that go beyond the purely physical. Between treatments, meditative spaces in the spa garden are conducive to relaxing in the sun or shade, enjoying a deliciously healthy lunch from the new spa kitchen menu, or sipping on iced, artisanal cocktails.

This summer, One&Only introduces ‘fitness for the face’, a revolutionary, intensive facial treatment incorporating NuFace, a handheld micro-current device that is rolled gently over the skin for 15 minutes to lift, tone and firm, stimulate cell regeneration, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and provide healthier, more youthful-looking skin. The Ultimate Lifting, Firming and Toning Facial featuring NuFace (90 minutes, R1695) uses Tri-Active® ingredients combined with the specialized facial massage lifting techniques to produce immediate results and help combat the signs of ageing. It also includes a relaxing scalp and shoulders massage. NuFace is also offered as a 15-minute ‘super-charge’ add-on to any of the other ESPA facials, enhancing the benefits. The NuFace hand-held device is available to purchase and use at home as part of your facial care in-between spa visits.

One&Only In Harmony (120 minutes, R3995) is a deeply transformative and relaxing four-hand massage using a Balinese flow massage technique, during which two therapists combine perfectly synchronised stretches, massage strokes and pressure to ease tension out of the body. With four hands in motion, the body is forced to stop ‘thinking’ and simply surrender to the sensation of touch. The experience includes a welcoming foot ritual, the signature ESPA sensory testing process (a fragrance blend is chosen by the guest to match their emotional and physical state) and a nourishing full body exfoliation before the full body massage.
The Active Abdominal Cleanse (60 minutes, R1050) is a purifying, detoxifying experience that will benefit everyone. It’s ideal for reducing bloating, assisting digestion and enhancing stomach tone, and includes a therapeutic G5 mechanical massage across the stomach, colon and liver for a non-invasive colonic cleanse with on-going detoxifying benefits.

One&Only Cape Town Spa packages all include lunch, which is served in the spa garden on fine days or at Isola, the resort’s poolside restaurant on the island. Those popping in for one or two treatments can also order from the new menu, which includes fresh, summery dishes, such as fresh oysters, a classic caprese salad, a chopped grilled chicken Cobb salad with Parmesan, a smoked salmon bagel, and a roast vegetable wrap. Dessert and fruit platters are ideal for nibbling on with a glass of sparkling wine or a cocktail. 

And for the partner or friend who has everything, consider the ultimate feel-good gift this festive season: an ESPA ‘sleep box’. The box contains a soothing candle, fragranced with frankincense, myrrh and sandalwood, bath oil and body lotion fragranced with ylang-yang and sandalwood, an overnight hydration therapy mask, and lavender ampoules to rub into the skin before drifting off to sleep. There is also ‘know-how’ about managing your sleep patterns and Circadian cycle.
